Northern Territory & Red Centre holidays - Alluring, unique and dramatic
Northern Territory is a melting pot of rich aboriginal history, otherworldly rock formations, unforgettable wildlife and vibrant cities. Home to perhaps Australia’s most iconic landmark, Uluru, this wonderfully diverse state has so much more to offer travellers willing to get off the beaten path and explore.
The state is home to 52 national parks showing off the truly varied landscape of the country. Kakadu National Park is a dramatically-sculpted birdwatchers paradise, Nitmiluk National Park hosts Katherine Gorge and of course the stunning Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is home to Ayers Rock.
A destination in touch with its Aboriginal heritage
Ruby red desert glows intensely as the sun dips below the horizon, whilst misty waterfalls cascade between rugged cliff faces. Wander along gigantic rocks, curiously looking for ancient art etched into their fiery orange exterior, and relish the alluring silence that envelopes you when you’re deep in the outback.
Australia’s Northern Territory is in touch with its Aboriginal heritage and impressive natural beauty, creating an almost magical ambience. Uluru is perhaps the most iconic attraction to encounter, its unique stature rising majestically from the sandy plains, whilst beautiful Kings Canyon offers adventurous souls a chance to hike. Kakadu & Katherine is where the nature lovers go, boasting awesome wildlife opportunities including more than 280 species of bird and impressive crocodiles.
If you’re hoping to discover Indigenous history and Aboriginal artwork, Alice Springs and Darwin are great options. There’s a touch of the contemporary in these two cities as well, with a great display of modern restaurants, bars and shops.
The Red Centre is the colloquial name given to this southern desert region of Australia’s Northern Territory, an extraordinary landscape featuring unique rock formations and spectacular gorges to dramatic mountain ranges, desert plains and some of the most sacred Aboriginal sites in the nation.Read more
