With Uluru (Ayers Rock) jutting out of its ochre red landscape, the Northern Territory is not only home to one of Australia’s most iconic landmarks, it is also possibly the most diverse of all the states of Australia. Aboriginal rock art galleries, natural wonders like Arnhemland, Katherine Gorge, Litchfield and the vast Kakadu National Park are just some of the many astonishing attractions. This really is the spiritual heart of Australia where you can hear and see stories of the Aboriginal Dreamtime, explore monsoon rainforests and flood plains and get close to the abundant bird and wildlife with an experienced local guide.
The Red Centre
Alice Springs is probably the most famous Outback town in the world but it’s Uluru (Ayers Rock) that is the icon of the Red Centre. Sunrise and sunset here is high on the list of treasured memories of a vacation in Australia. See it from the air on a helicopter or scenic flight, take the five mile walk around it, ride a Harley around it - or just sit back and take in it’s extraordinary presence from your luxury tented accommodation.
Darwin, Kakdu & National Parks
Darwin in the Top End is the gateway to Kakadu National Park. It’s one of the fastest growing cities in Australia, and just four hours from Singapore so the Asian influence is evident in the local food culture here. Kakadu National Park is as big as Wales, so big in fact that it’s divided into seven regions and six seasons. Natural wonders like Arnhemland, Katherine Gorge, Litchfield are all accessible from Darwin, as are the wetlands of the Mary River and these regions are where you get close to the prolific bird and wildlife of Australia. Camping adventures with an experienced local guide combine with luxury lodge accommodation all adds to the experience of a vacation to the Top End.
