The Northern Territory is famed for its iconic national parks, outback desert landscapes, tropical waterfalls and unique wildlife. In the Top End lies Kadadu National Park — a nature reserve with wetlands, waterfalls, wildlife and Aboriginal rock paintings. In contrast, the arid Red Centre lies to the south with remote Alice Springs, the gateway. A four-hour drive away find the iconic sandstone monolith Uluru (Ayers Rock), the red-rock domes of Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) and the sculpted cliffs of Kings Canyon in Watarrka National Park.

Soak up Darwin's balmy weather and the melting pot of food and cultures in the city's many outdoor settings and sunset markets. Visit the museums and galleries to explore the region's dramatic history — from World War II air raids to Cyclone Tracey. Sail Darwin's harbour at sunset or cruise next to crocodiles. Take a day trip to Litchfield National Park with a myriad of diverse environments including rugged sandstone escarpments, perennial spring-fed streams, monsoon rainforest, magnetic termite mounds, waterfalls and historic ruins.

See wildlife, waterfalls and one of the world's largest areas of accessible Aboriginal rock art within the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park. Discover natural beauty, diverse wildlife and rich Aboriginal heritage. Arnhem Land located to the north is one of the last pristine areas in the world. Its Traditional owners are the Yolngu people, who have occupied the region for at least 60,000 years. It is wild, spiritual and diverse, with rugged coastlines, remote islands, rivers teeming with fish, lush rainforest, towering escarpments and savanna grasslands.

Nestled between hauntingly beautiful mountain ranges and ochre sands is Alice Springs fondly known as "Alice", Australia's most famous outback town. Explore the region brimming with art, culture and history. A visit to the unique community services of the School of the Air and the Royal Flying Doctor Service should not to be missed.

Uluru, situated 430kms to the south-west of Alice Springs is said to be more than 600 million years old. At 3.6km long and rising 348m from the earth, it is a very impressive monolith. The colours of Uluru change during the day culminating to its most dramatic as the sun sets. Learn about Uluru's significant cultural importance to the traditional landowners; the Mutitjulu people as you walk around its base. Nearby Kata Tjuta is a striking conglomerate of 36 domed rocks huddled together forming deep valleys and steep gorges. The tallest rock, at 546m is 200m higher than Uluru.

Kings Canyon offers amazing panoramic views across the Watarrka National Park. The Rim Walk around the canyon, is one of the most popular treks for unmatched views over the canyon including the 'Lost City' and the 'Garden of Eden' domes.
