ULURU (AYERS ROCK) & THE NORTHERN TERRITORY TOURING
Regarded as Australia’s ‘real Outback’, the Northern Territory takes you off the beaten track into a stark, yet fascinating wilderness unlike anywhere else in the world.
Rich in Aboriginal heritage, the stunning Northern Territory is a vast land encompassing hundreds of miles of arid desert known as the ‘Red Centre’, dozens of national parks resplendent in unique flora and fauna and many of Australia’s most iconic landmarks, including Uluru (Ayers Rock)....
As such, a Northern Territory tour with Travelbag is an excellent way to explore Australia’s heart, where you’ll discover the intriguing rural Outback ways, witness extraordinary natural marvels and be regaled by an enthralling heritage.
Travelbag promises to remove the hassle of devising an itinerary across this vast land, arranging your accommodation and your transport to ensure you get the most from the Northern Territory’s many, but spread out attractions.
No tour of the Northern Territory would be complete without a visit to Australia’s enduring natural icon, Uluru (Ayers Rock). Famous for its red hues, the large sandstone rock formation is sacred to Aboriginal people and is home to many springs, water holes, caves and ancient artwork.
A remarkable sight against the backdrop of the flat, arid land of Australia’s Red Centre, Uluru is best experienced during an unforgettable sunrise or sunset as it changes colour in the impending dawn or dusk.
The surrounding areas also hold much appeal, including Kata Tjuta, better known as ‘The Olgas’, a series of unusual domed rock formations, and Kings Canyon with its strikingly dramatic vistas.
Territory represents a vast array of unique flora and fauna, thriving in an unusual eco-system. For a glimpse at these rare species and some beautiful natural formations, head over to the magnificent Kakadu National Park or Litchfield National Park.
Nearby, the cosmopolitan city of Darwin in the very north is making vast gains with its burgeoning culture and tempting beaches, while the centrally located Alice Springs – best accessed on a picturesque trip on ‘The Ghan’ train - is considered a veritable oasis.
Furthermore, as the heartland of the Aboriginal culture, the Northern Territory offers a captivating insight into this civilization and a Northern Territory tour will allow you to better understand the history and customs of the fascinating Aboriginal people.
With dramatic, unbroken landscapes stretching as far as the eye can see, simply venturing into Australia’s sun-kissed Northern Territory will be the holiday experience of a lifetime.
