Australia's tropical capital of outdoor adventure and majestic landscapes

This state – Australia's least populous, with an archaeological history spanning 40,000 years and a colossal span of 1.3 million square kilometres – is as rustic and awe-inspiring as you imagine. And yet, there are so many surprises in store. From the fascinating Indigenous cultural insights you can get in the Katherine region, to the majestic scenery and waterholes of Alice Springs, the incredible waterfalls and lookouts of Kakadu, and the opportunity to connect with nature, culture and a spot of serious fishing in the Gove region, the Top End is a serial adventurer’s nirvana.

Throw in dining under the stars with an ochre-red backdrop, superlative scenic flights, crocodile cruises, camel rides, night walks and waterhole swims – the list of unmissable experiences is endless. Uluru is only the beginning.
