Venture into the far north of Australia to visit some of the most pristine coastal scenery and vast red deserts you’ve ever set eyes on. It’s a wonderland where native animals abound and the Australian Outback is at its most stunning.

Read our guide to some of the best experiences the Northern Territory has to offer:

Wetland cruise

The Northern Territory’s wetlands and billabongs are thronged with native flora and fauna. The best way to experience the water life here is by boat, so take to the waters on one of the many wetland cruises. From a canopied boat, you’ll see plenty of water buffalo, crocodiles and sea birds – and at dawn and dusk you’ll be treated to a sky flooded with beautiful colours.

Aboriginal rock art

In the heart of Arnhem Land you’ll come face to face with some of the most impressive Aboriginal rock art in the country. Dating back 20,000 years, the Aboriginal rock art in Kakadu will take you through Dreamtime legends from the local cultures, who carved and painted stories of their beliefs. You can view rock art at Ubirr and Nourlangie.

Katherine Gorge

Known by its Aboriginal name Nitmiluk, the stunning collection of 13 natural gorges in Arnhem Land gives you the perfect opportunity to explore rockholes, rich waters and impressive forests.

There is something for everyone, whether you want to take to the walking tracks, swim the billabongs or canoe your way through the water. If you’re feeling adventurous, a helicopter ride affords the perfect chance to see all 13 gorges from the sky – a pretty impressive bird’s eye view.
