It’s our very own wild (north) west, the vast Northern Territory timeless and iconic. From the red rivers of rock at Uluru to the nature lover’s haven at Kakadu National Park, there is a seemingly endless parade of wonders to discover here. We have picked our 10 must see’s that all Aussie’s should visit to reconnect with our vast and beautiful land.


Uluru

Visit at either sunrise or sunset to view this spectacular sight as Uluru transforms from ochre to burnished orange and intense red. For a more unique experience be sure to catch a bush walk led by a local ranger where you will learn about Tjukurpa (Aboriginal law) and discover some of the beautiful traditions surrounding the rock.

Bird Watching

Time to get your bird nerd on! Home to the highest number of waterbirds in Australia as well as rare birds including such fantastically named species as the Chestnut-Quilled Rock Pigeon and the Helmeted Friarbird. It is, however, also home to our famous bird eating spider… yep that thing exists… it’s called that Golden Orb Weaver.

Watarrka National Park

Home of Kings Canyon’s palm-filled crevices, beautiful desert views, and incredible vistas of endless stars that only the outback can provide.


Wilderness Safari Retreat

Stay on the doorstep of Uluru and experience iconic landscapes and wildlife up close and personal.

Canoeing & Kayaking

For those looking for a little more adventure, kayaking down the ancient waterways of the Katherine area allows for access to remote and dramatic landscapes. Keep an eye out for a croc bathing on the waters edge.

Markets

Whether it’s aboriginal crafts, local produce or food you’re looking for. You won’t want to miss out on markets in the major cities or towns, like Darwin or heading more rural go to Palmerston, or even if you are soaking it up at tropical beaches, you’ll find a gift to suit everyone back home…as well as a little something for yourself.

Tiwi Islands

50 miles off the north coast and inhabited by just 3,000 people, the Tiwi Islands are not only stunning, they’re steeped in aboriginal history. They’re also nicknamed the “Islands of smiles”, so honestly how could you resist?
