Tourist Information for planning your next Northern Territory Holiday including - Accommodation, Tours, Flights and a whole lot more ...
The Northern Territory is home to rich wetlands, wild rainforests and thundering waterfalls, and is one of the most sparsely settled environments on the planet. Ancient woodlands meet sandy beaches and escarpments tower above lush billabongs in this land of diversity. Aboriginal art and culture holds a spiritual connection to the land that dates back tens of thousands of years, yet these experiences can still be shared in the present day. Travellers can walk through the scrub in search of bush tucker on a cultural tour or visit on of the many ancient rock art galleries in the national parks, such as Kakadu or Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
Whether it’s climbing the escarpments, viewing rock art, catching fish, exploring the red desert flora and fauna or trekking through chasms in Central Australia, there’s an experience for everyone in the Northern Territory.Northern Territory Facts and Figures
