Northern Territory Highlights

Above all other icons in the Northern Territory, Uluru is not one to be missed. Located deep in the heart of the ‘Red Centre’, the majestic monolith shares the region with several ‘outback’ landmarks such as the intriguing Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) and the beautiful, charming town of Alice Springs with its art scene and hip café culture.

The Northern Territory’s (NT) ‘Top End’ capital, Darwin, is a booming city that entices travellers the world over with its exotic, outdoor lifestyle. With crocodile adventures, waterfront dining, an enriched sense of history and access to the Tiwi Islands all within reach of the city centre, there’s plenty to do in this Australian getaway that serves as the gateway Kakadu, Litchfield and Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge).

Packing Tips

One of Australia’s most intriguing regions, the Northern Territory is filled with bustling cities, ancient cultures and thriving wildlife all spread across its stunning landscapes.

With so much to do throughout the Northern Territory, you’re likely to be spending a great deal of time outdoors, which means you should pack plenty of sun protection like hats, sunscreen, sunglasses and plenty of water. Be sure to bring a camera for any photo opportunities and sturdy walking boots for those long adventures on foot.

Weather In Northern Territory & Red Centre

With such a large, diverse landscape, the Northern Territory’s climates can differ widely between areas. The Red Centre’s climate resembles that of an arid desert, with the hot summer days and nights giving way to the warm days and cold nights of winter. The Top End’s climate is more tropical in nature, with a warm, dry winter lasting between April and October shifting to a summer of humid weather and afternoon rains that last throughout the remaining months.

Because of the area boasting such a differing climate, judging the days based on highest and lowest averages is not recommended as they can vary greatly from place to place.

Things to do in the Northern Territory

  • Watch as the sun rises or sets over the red rock of Uluru (Ayers Rock) and catch sight of the gorgeous ‘Field of Light’ instillation while you can.
  • Sit back and watch the sun ebb below the horizon while aboard a soothing harbour cruise or at one of many waterside restaurants.
  • Get to know some of the crocodiles that call this region home on a fantastic wildlife cruise.
  • Pay a visit to Kakadu where you can marvel at the Aboriginal rock art sites known as Nourlangie and Ubirr.
  • See the intricacies of the Katherine Gorge from a unique birds-eye-view perspective on board a helicopter.
  • Browse the Aboriginal art galleries of Alice Springs where you just may get the chance to meet the artists themselves.
  • Gaze out over the ‘Garden of Eden’ from a vantage point along the Kings Canyon Rim Walk.
  • Between April and October, you can browse the wares of the sunset markets that line Darwin’s Mindil Beach on Thursdays and Sundays.
  • Learn all about bush tucker food, see spectacular works of art and listen to dreamtime stories on an in-depth Aboriginal tour.
  • Delve deep into the past of Australia at Darwin’s city museum that covers everything from WWII to Cyclone Tracy.
