Explore the Northern Territory during your working holiday

Include the Northern Territory in your working holiday to see a completely different side of Australia.


Explore Uluru and Kata Tjuta to learn about Aboriginal history, camp in some of the most remote landscapes in the world and get to know the locals at an Outback pub. Best of all, the whole Northern Territory is considered a regional area, meaning that you can more easily extend your working holiday to a second year by spending time here. No working holiday in Australia would be complete without including the Northern Territory on your must-do list.
