The Northern Territory (NT) is a vast federal territory in Australia famed for its Outback desert landscapes. with stirring landscapes and abundant wildlife, which deliver the experience from scenic flights, crocodile spotting and fishing charters to camel rides, overnight walks, hikes and waterhole swims, you’re spoilt for choices in the Northern Territory.

In the arid Red Centre lie the iconic and most popular landmark sandstone monolith Uluru (Ayers Rock), the red-rock domes of Kata Tjuta, the sculpted cliffs of Kings Canyon in Watarrka National Park and remote Alice Springs.

Darwin City

Staying in Darwin is definitely something you should think about doing if you’re planning a trip to Australia any time soon.

The capital city of the Northern Territory, this sprawling expanse of city has everything you can possibly wish for, plus the added benefit of being small enough that you won’t feel too lost in a big city.

The city has been almost entirely rebuilt four times, following three cyclones and a WWII attack. However, you wouldn’t know that this is a place that has been through so many hardships, as it’s a cultural hub and definite tourist hotspot as there are so many things to do in and around the city.

Uluru Highlights

One of the things that people famously travel to Darwin for is to go and visit Uluru. Although Uluru is miles from – well anywhere – it is situated in the southern part of the Northern Territory meaning it’s a straight shot on the highway between Uluru and Darwin.

Uluru is a place of huge cultural and historical significance for the indigenous Australian people. It is one of the most famous places in the country, although people are requested not to climb it and not to photograph certain areas of it – out of respect for the indigenous people.

However, it really is an amazing opportunity to see it close up – a true wonder of nature. Darwin to Uluru Tours are plentiful, and there are many different itineraries to follow – depending on your budget and time frame.

Alice Springs

If you visit Uluru, you may as well pay a visit to Alice Springs – Uluru’s closest neighbour and probably one of the most remote towns on Earth.

With one road leading through it, you’ll feel as though you have been transported to another world, yet one that is quiet and peaceful and smack bang in the middle of nowhere.

Because it’s located in the middle of the desert, it really is an experience to see how the people here overcome the challenges of living so remotely.

Because of this desert lifestyle, Alice Springs is home to many unique events such as the Camel Cup, Beanie Festival and the Tatts Finke Desert Race.

There are also places where you can take off in a hot air balloon and enjoy a bird’s eye view of the desert around you, so you can really appreciate just how remote this town is. You can also follow the desert art trail, and learn more about the Aboriginal culture by viewing their art all along this trail.

Because Alice Springs is still home to many indigenous people, make sure to respect and preserve their culture, while promoting it in a way that is still respectful of the people. It is a perfect example of two different cultures coming together to respect and celebrate their differences.

Mataranka Hot Springs

100km south of Katherine, Mataranka Hot Springs brings visitors a lush landscape that’s filled with thermal pools, trickling streams, and plenty of places to feed the local Barramundi.

Mataranka Hot Springs, fed and bubbles at around 34 degrees Celsius throughout the year and believed to heal any aches and pains, which brings most of the people to this the sparkling, clear waters perch in the shade of the many paperbark and palm trees.

Another thing that draw visitors down to Mataranka is the stunning walks that take you along the length of the beautiful Roper River and through the bush from the campground at 12 Mile Hole and numerous hiking trails dotted around.

Kings Canyon

While on your journey, also try to stop at Kings Canyon, located in Watarrka National Park, just north of Uluru.

The park is made up of the same red sand as the desert, but there are also mottled green bushes and many other plants who have adapted to survive in the heart of the desert.

Kings Canyon is a towering cliff that looks out over hundreds of miles of desert and the National Park itself. You are free to scale these cliffs, and if you are so inclined, one of the best things to do is to scale it and watch the sunrise over the National Park.

There is also a resort there, so if you want a break from camping in the outdoors, why not treat yourself to a nice meal here? Helicopter flights are also available to take over the park, for views you will never forget.

Despite the amazing Darwin to Uluru Tours above mentioned, there are many more things which are much closer to home.

Kakadu National Park

While in Darwin, pay a visit to Kakadu National Park, a 7,646 square mile park where you will find wildlife, Aboriginal populations and breath-taking views.

The park is so large, it is nearly half the size of Switzerland and would take you weeks to explore the whole place. However, you should try and see the Aboriginal rock art located in various places in the park, where you can really see how the indigenous people live.

There are also many waterfalls and rivers flowing throughout the park, meaning you can stop for a cool down all over the place.

Note: Watch out where you’re stopping though, as Kakadu National Park is also home to over 10,000 crocodiles, who won’t be happy about sharing.
