The burnt red earth of the Outback, the magnetic attraction of Kakadu and Uluru National Parks and the mystical Aboriginal culture makes the Northern Territory a most unique destination. This is the real Australia in all its raw, unspoilt majesty.
The Territory story unfolds through six main destinations, from the tropics of Darwin, Kakadu and Katherine, through to the yellow plains of Tennant Creek and the desert landscapes of Alice Springs and Uluru/Ayers Rock.
Each destination has its own appeal and offers an incredible range of experiences, people, places and history to uncover. Occupying an area of about one-sixth of Australia's total land mass, it has a population of little more than 200,000 people.
There are two very distinct climate zones. The northern region starts the year with warm, tropical rain then moves to warm and sunny days and cool nights. The central region is semi-arid and experiences Australia's four typical seasons.
