Home of the real outback, Australia’s Northern Territory is nothing short of spectacular. From uncovering the many (beautiful!) natural wonders and experiencing the rich Aboriginal culture to simply basking in the vast landscapes, the NT is the place to truly escape. But let’s be real, the territory is simply bursting with highlights, and we’d truly be here forever if we had to list them all! So let’s delve into some of what this region has to offer.

Litchfield National Park is a delight in every sense of the word. Around only an hour drive from the Territory’s capital, Darwin; this park is packed with hidden gems.

Here you’ll find a plethora of natural wonders: like the impeccable Karrimurra (Florence Falls), cascading into a crystal clear plunge pool, these falls and their surroundings will enchant you; and Buley Rockhole, with its turquoise, flowing waters.

 

 

Next up is the rocky cliffs and tranquil waters of Leliyn (Edith Falls), located in the famous Nitmiluk National Park, or more widely known as Katherine National Park. Set against a backdrop of dusty red cliffs, the pure beauty of the Falls' surroundings will draw you in and leave you wanting more and more. Ideal for swimming all year round, the refreshing waters of the Falls and swimming holes are the perfect escape from reality.

 

Kakadu is a sight to behold – and it’s not hard to understand why it’s been recognised as a World Heritage-listed site for its outstanding culture. The park’s famed Burrungkuy (Nourlangie) region is popular for its well-preserved rock art, wildlife, and incredible scenery. A window into the rich Aboriginal culture and traditions, the rock art site will leave you speechless.

 

Although one of the smallest capitals in Australia, what Darwin lacks in size, it makes up for in charm. Nicknamed the tropical capital, sunshine awaits you as you explore this charming city. Offering an abundance of fine dining options, it’s also the food lover’s paradise. Wander the stunning George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens and explore the Museum & Art Gallery of Northern Territory. With so much on offer, you’ll never be bored in this pretty little city!
