WHAT SIGHTS SHOULD I VISIT IN THE NORTHERN TERRITORY?

1. Uluru

There is truly something magical about Uluru.This iconic red sandstone monolith which stands at 348m in the heart of the outback is a real spectacle to behold!  We loved getting up early and walking around the base at sunrise.  Of course, sunset is also a fantastic time of day to look at Uluru, watching its colour transform. Learn why Uluru is so significant to the local Anagu people and feel their connection to this ancient land.  You can even have a once in a lifetime dinner under the outback stars.

2. Kata Tjuta (The Olgas)

Witness the mesmerising sight of the rock domes of Kata Tjuta.There are several walks available here….. read the signs describing the local flora on the way.Kata Tjuta is an important spiritual site for the local Anagu culture and means ‘many heads’.

3. Kings Canyon

We loved getting our hiking boots on and doing the 3-4 hour Rim Walk at Kings Canyon. The view from the top of the rim is incredible.  See the Garden of Eden, a waterhole surrounded by lush plants.  Kings Canyon was made famous in the film ‘Priscilla Queen of the Desert’.  Make sure to take two large bottles of water with you.

4. Alice Springs

There is something about the little town of Alice and it’s worth spending a couple of nights here.  Make time to visit Brolga at his Kangaroo Sanctuary at dusk (made famous on BBC-do book tickets in advance).  We enjoyed wandering around Desert Springs Park, watching the wallabies hopping around, learning about all the local plants and wildlife.  Admire Aboriginal art and meet many local artists in the town’s galleries.

5. Darwin

From Alice Springs we recommend flying to tropical Darwin.  This culturally diverse small city is a great place to stay.  We really enjoyed the Darwin Military Museum, which offers an immersive show about Darwin’s bombing in WW2.  Stop for lunch at the trendy Darwin Waterfront Precinct, bring your swim stuff for a quick dip in the wave pool.  Darwin is famous for its colourful markets, packed full of artisan goods.  Book a tour on a ‘jumping crocodile cruise’ on the Adelaide River. It’s a memory you will never forget…just keep your arms in!

6. Litchfield National Park

A day trip from Darwin to Litchfield National Park is a popular choice! It’s easy to see why….Bring your swim gear, dive into crystal clear waterholes and swim beneath waterfalls.  Fantastic bushwalking here and the giant termite mounds are mesmerising!

7. Kakadu National Park

Stay overnight in Kakadu to fully appreciate what Australia’s largest National Park has to offer!  Aboriginal culture, incredible landscapes, wetlands and forests.  Enjoy a billabong cruise to see huge crocodiles!
