    How to Spend a Week in Australia’s Northern Territory | Northern Territory Travel Guide

    Northern Territory Travel Guide

    Planning a trip to the Northern Territory? It’s best to visit during the  dry season from mid to late April through to October. During the wet season the NT pretty much shuts up shop along with many of the attractions and some areas of the National Parks become inaccessible. Planning your visit from April – October will ensure you can see and do lots more things to make the most out of your time up North!  

    We’ve put together a Northern Territory 1 week itinerary travel guide for a week’s itinerary including where to stay in Darwin, activities around the city and exciting adventure tours departing from Darwin so you can make the most out of Australia’s wildest State!
