About the Northern Territory Region

Area: 1,349,130 sq kms (520,902 sq miles)
State Population: 197,700
Capital: Darwin
Population: 88,100 (official estimate 1999)

The Northern Territory makes up nearly one-sixth of Australia and geographically most closely resembles the popular image of the Great Australian Outback.

The north or Top End, centred on the capital, Darwin, is tropical with rich vegetation and a varied coastline. 251km east of Darwin is World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park (the third largest National Park in the world and about half the size of Switzerland), an area of vast flood plains and rocky escarpments steeped in natural and cultural heritage and home to Aborigines for at least 40,000 years. Katherine is 314km south of Darwin and just beyond that is Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) National Park, a striking system of 13 gorges towering up to 60 metres high.

The southern part of the Territory is centred on Alice Springs, which is virtually the centre of Australia and the starting point to explore many of the Red Centre's highlights including Uluru (Ayers Rock), which is located about 465kms to the south-west.

Other of the Red Centre's natural and geological wonders include Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), King's Canyon, the Western MacDonnell Ranges and the Devil's Marbles.

Northern Territory Culture

Some areas that we visit have great significance to the local Aborigines and as such are culturally sensitive. Access to these areas (which includes the Uluru (Ayers Rock) climb) may be restricted for cultural reasons for unspecified times and with little prior notice. We reserve the right to amend our itineraries or visit alternative areas in these circumstances and no refunds will be given.

Red Centre:
Uluru-Kata Tjuta Aboriginal Cultural Centre: in keeping with the park's importance to indigenous people, major emphasis is placed on helping visitors understand Aboriginal traditions and lifestyle. The Cultural Centre houses the park's information services with displays presenting the sights and sounds of Tjukurpa (creation stories and laws) and the local culture.

Top End:
Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre: the centre's circular design represents a warradjan (pig-nosed turtle). As well as providing detailed information about Aboriginal culture in Kakadu, there is also a video room and a gallery that sells Aboriginal arts and crafts plus books and cards.

Aboriginal Rock Art:amazing examples of rock art dating back an estimated 40,000 years can be seen throughout Kakadu but most notably at Ubirr and Nourlangie.

Northern Territory Wildlife

Red Centre:
You may see kangaroos, emus, wild camels, goannas, thorny devils and more.

Top End:
You may see wallabies, salt and fresh water crocodiles, buffalo, frill-neck lizards, wild pigs and a huge variety of bird life including wedge-tailed and sea eagles, jabiru and herons.

Northern Territory Climate

Seasonality of the Top End

Located in the Arid Tropical region of Northern Australia means that you enjoy beautiful weather for the majority of the year. The Top End experiences 2 distinct seasons as outlined below.




 

Average Minimum

Average Maximum Description
Tropical Winter 21.5°C 31.5°C Unlike most southern capitals which usually experience cool temperatures at this time of the year, the Top End enjoys blue skies, warm dry days and cool nights...perfect for outdoor adventures and touring.
Tropical Summer 24.6°C 32.2°C Spectacular electrical storms, sun showers and warm, humid weather are the characteristics. The waterfalls are in full flow, flocks of birds spread across the wetlands, and a rich lush green becomes the dominant colour scheme


Due to rainfall and distinct seasonality, access into parts of Kakadu National Park will be restricted from Dec-Apr. At this time of year, some travellers may feel that Kakadu is a harder adventure than the soft nature of our other tours.


Available facilities to go to the accommodation:

- Airport Shuttle Bus services are available (Darwin); and (Alice Springs)
- Check if free transfer buses are provided by the hostels.

Northern Territory 'Things to do and see'

Adelaide River township: approximately 110kms south of Darwin along the Stuart Highway you will find the World War II Cemetery.

Alice Springs: Alice Springs is the famous geographical centre of Australia. This town is situated on the Stuart Highway and is a place where the traditional Arrernte Aboriginal owners have lived for about 20000 years. About 29000 people live in the town nowadays. Alice Springs is unique insofar as the town is situated 'in the middle of nowhere' but the atmosphere there is really warm, the nightlife is just amazing, and the attractions nearby are numerous.

Annaburroo: a saltwater, crocodile free swimming billabong.

Barramundi Gorge (Maguk): one of the few permanent waterfalls in Kakadu, it has cut its path through the ancient sandstone creating an oasis where we can swim.

Barrow creek pub: this pub is a typical stopover point on the Stuart Highway and is located about 280 kilometres north of Alice Springs.

Buley Rockhole: with Wangi Falls this series of small waterfalls is certainly the most popular and beautiful swimming spot in the Litchfield National Park.

Carr Boyd ranges: located south of Kununurra Carr Boyd Range offers beautiful sceneries with deep gorges, nice waterfalls and pretty fern pools. The wildlife is also abundant there.

Coober Pedy: is the opal capital of the world, producing 95% of the world's opals and attracts a special breed of people. There are 41 different nationalities living in a population of just over 4000 people. 80% of them live underground to avoid the heat. There are underground shops, churches, hostels and hotels. We accommodate our guests in an underground bunkhouse, but also offer the opportunity to upgrade accommodation to a 4 star hotel for those who want to break the journey. Passengers will be taken on a mine tour and given the opportunity to β€˜noodle’ for their own opals.

Curtin Springs Station: a working cattle station of some 4000 square kms, on which is located Mt Connor.

Cycad Gorge at Palm Valley: clumps of tall, slender palms lending a tropical atmosphere to their barren setting. These pre-historic palms are leftovers from much wetter times in Central Australia.

Daly Waters: the famous pub at Daly Waters, the oldest in the Northern Territory, is situated 588kms south of Darwin and also acts as a bank, post office and police station. It dates back more than a hundred years and was originally built for the pioneer drovers on the long cattle drives through this part of the Outback.

Darwin: This is the most popular town and also the territorial capital of the Northern Territory. It is a city of about 110000 inhabitants with a large proportion of Aboriginal people, which justify the fact that the town is sometimes called 'the multicultural capital of Australia'.

Devils Marbles: massive red granite boulders balancing precariously on top of each other located some 100kms south of Tennant Creek.

Uluru (Ayers Rock): the second largest Monolith in the world and centre of the sacred heart of Australia, it is of deep cultural significance to local Aborigines.

What is the difference between a tour and a safari. In Australia especially in Northern Territory the two words 'tour and 'safari' can often be used together. Traditionally a safari is a African Swahili word safari indicating "long journey", previously used when hunting. A guided safari nowadays as in Australia is for travelling vast distances to observe, photograph and experience close up and in person animals, all other wildlife, natural habitats, national parks, pristine nature spots such as waterfalls and flora and fauna unique to that area.

Whereas an Australian guided 'tour' (being a noun) is traditionally a journey for pleasure in which several different places are visited such as the Great Ocean Road in Victoria and then onto the Great Barrier Reef near Cairns in Queensland. If the trip is from Sydney to Darwin and includes Ayers Rock Uluru and Kakadu then it may be called a safari tour. A tour can include a spectrum of sites, places, travel styles and activities.

An adventure safari tour is one generally for fit and adventurous persons usually over 8 years old and under 65 though we have helped many folks in their 70's and even 80's or with young families under 8 years old on selected tours and private customized charters who have been very fit and adventurous persons.

Some people like to travel only with same age adventure travels so tours are especially designed for certain age groups such as over 40's adventure tours or 18-35's adventure tours. All these adventure tours found here are for singles, couples, friends or small groups of friends and we call this DYI adventure tours.
