You haven’t been Down Under 'til you’ve been Outback!
Arguably the most fascinating region of Australia, the Northern Territory is a mind-bogglingly beautiful place, sporting some of the world’s greatest natural wonders. It encompasses an enormous expanse of land, from the vibrant city of Darwin on the northern coast, to the burnt red deserts known as the Red Centre over a thousand miles to the south. And if you're after work, you've come to the right place. In the thriving city of Darwin you'll have no problem finding jobs, whether in construction, hospitality, teaching, or in the health sector. Similarly, you'll find plenty of working holiday opportunities in the city of Alice Springs, in the southern end of the Northern Territory.
The Northern Territory’s spectacular landscape and breathtaking iconic attractions will stay with you forever. Whether you feel like going for a swim in the crystal-clear pools in Litchfield National Park, kayaking through Katherine gorge or hiking and camping under the stars in Kakadu, the NT has got you covered. Darwin itself is one of Australia's most exciting cities. Closer to Asia than Sydney, it has a multicultural vibe and there's no shortage of great bars, restaurants and budget accommodation. It also has some epic things to do, like Crocosaurus Cove, which allows brave tourists to cage dive with salt water crocodiles. This is Australia at its adventurous best.
Working holidays in the Northern Territory
One of the best things to do in Australia is a working holiday, and the Northern Territory is one of the country’s best regions in which to do that. Most travellers base themselves in either Darwin, close to highlights including Kakadu National Park, Litchfield National Park and Katherine Gorge, or Alice Springs, close to Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park and Kings Canyon. You’ll find heaps of employment options, covering everything from working with cattle in beautiful Outback ranches, or working with people in the buzzing lights of Darwin. It’s important to have a Working Holiday Visa, as this will give you permission by the Australian government to work for up to 12 months once you’ve entered the country.

Australia’s Top End is definitely a TOP destination! The Top End refers to the upper region of the Northern Territory, and this is where you’ll find some of its most incredible natural wonders.

And so much more! All within easy reach of charming Darwin. Joining a tour can not only be absolutely epic but can really save you money.
Red Centre Adventure Tours

The Red Centre of Australia is home to famous Uluru (Ayers Rock), a 348-metre high monolith that rises majestically from the surrounding desert. There’s also Kata Tjuta, Kings Canyon, and more, all within easy reach of Alice Springs.
