Northern Territory Holidays

Northern Territory holidays take you to the heart of Australia, offering unique natural surroundings perfect for explorers. It’s home to some of the country’s most iconic scenery in the Red Centre, where you’ll find miles of dry red desert, beautiful national parks, jagged mountains and crystal clear skies brought to life with sparkling stars at night.

From the scorched outback of the Red Centre to the Top End's lush wetlands, home to a wide variety of native wildlife, the Northern Territory is overflowing with natural attractions and cultural history that spans over 50,000 years. Darwin is a great starting point for a Northern Territory holiday, combining an outdoorsy, overgrown small-town feel with a fascinating history and an ever-expanding cosmopolitan and multicultural lifestyle. A beautiful sunset cruise out of Cullen Bay Marina is a great way to begin your Northern Territory holiday or check out Mindil Beach Sunset Market, where you can find authentic Australian arts and crafts souvenirs, and try fresh and tasty dishes from around the world.

Authentic Australia

Prepare to be left in awe by the magic of Australia’s spiritual centre, Uluru (Ayers Rock). Ride a camel through the spectacular national parks, look out for kangaroos and get to know the many cultures of the Aborigines as you immerse yourself in ancient art and traditional ceremonies. Visit the outback town of Alice Springs, home to the Museum of Central Australia and Alice Springs Reptile Centre, where you'll discover snakes, lizards and the extraordinary ‘thorny devil’ lizard which blends into Red Centre landscape like a chameleon.
