Northern Territory, Australia
Arguably the most fascinating region of Australia, and certainly the most rugged, the Northern Territory is a mind-bogglingly beautiful place, sporting some of the world’s greatest natural wonders. Commonly abbreviated to NT, it encompasses an absolutely enormous expanse of land, from the vibrant city of Darwin on the northern coast, to the burgundy deserts known as the Red Centre over a thousand miles to the south.
Six times the size of Great Britain, the vast landscape of the NT is fascinating in its own right but when those iconic attractions pop up, they will stay with you forever. Uluru – formerly known as Ayers Rock – truly exceeds the hype, while the lesser-known but equally magnificent Kings Canyon provides one of the most exhilarating hiking trails in the country. Kakadu National Park, to the east of Darwin, is about the same size as Wales, and home to incredible wildlife, while Litchfield, to the south of Darwin, is full of idyllic waterfalls and swimming holes.
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 it's adventurous best.
