Spend the night under a million stars in the vast and remote Australian outback. From vivid red deserts, tropical savannah and lush wetlands to rugged peaks and untouched coastline, the size and scale of the Northern Territory has to be seen to be believed. Leave behind the creature comforts of home and see all that nature has to offer up close.
Head to one of the region’s many National Parks and spend a weekend exploring the ancient landscape on short walks, multi-day hikes and kayaking trips. Camp next to the famous Jim Jim Billabong in Kakadu, watch for local wildlife at the Ellery Creek campground in the MacDonnell Ranges, or pitch your tent near Uluru and take in spectacular sunsets over Australia’s most famous landmark.
At your own pace
Explore the territory your own way by hiring a campervan or four-wheel drive. From luxury campers to budget basics you’ll find something that fits you and your wallet size. Go on an outback adventure along the Stuart Highway stopping off at Kings Canyon, Tennant creek and the Mary River wetlands. Get a dose of sea air on a beach jaunt along the coast or take a tour of the northwest with visits to Kakadu, Nitmiluk and Litchfield National Parks.
Let the locals show you around on one of the many guided camping tours in national parks, coastal regions and the outback. Walk, ride or sail through startling landscapes and learn the customs of local indigenous tribes, catch barramundi and see saltwater crocodiles, dingoes and goannas in their natural habitat.
Plan your visit
The Northern Territory is a remote region and home to all kinds of wildlife, so it is easy to be caught off guard. Plan your journey in advance and adhere to all local safety advice.
