The cultural capital of Darwin
A fascinating blend of cultures, with an amazing mix of festivals, magical beachside night markets, pearling history, museums and incredible sunsets. Surrounded by sea on three sides, with world-class wilderness areas nearby, Darwin is an excellent base to soak up the Northern Territory’s laid-back vibe before exploring the World Heritage-listed national parks and rich indigenous culture of the land beyond.
There's nothing like 'The Alice'
Alice Springs is arguably Australia’s most famous outback town. Here stories of Australian history overflow, supported by a rich cast of characters, Afghan cameleers, flying doctors and explorers. The desert terrain sets the scene for authentic outback adventures. Ride mountain-bikes, bushwalk, go four-wheel driving, swim in natural rock pools, or just revel in the glory of the wide open spaces.
Australia's spiritual and physical heart
It is impossible to visit Australia and not see Uluru. Watching the changing colours of the sun rise and set on ‘the rock’ is the penultimate Australian experience. Learn the laws of the land from an Aboriginal guide following in the footsteps of ancestral spirits. Take it in from every perspective, by helicopter, hot air balloon or the back of a camel. The mysterious Kata Tjuta is just as impressive.
The timeless north
Kakadu is not only a place of great cultural significance; it is a biological wonderland, teeming with wildlife. See millions of birds in one place. Hear the stories of the Dreamtime from the longest continuous surviving human culture in the greatest and oldest collection of rock art in the world. Venture further to Nitmiluk and experience a journey through time.
