Don't Miss These Must-Do Activities in Australia's Northern Territory

Stretching from the dry desert plains of Alice Springs and Ayers Rock (Uluru) to the tropical north of Darwin and the outback, the Northern Territory is Australia's very own version of the Wild West. Here are our picks for must-do activities in the Northern Territory.

See Ayers Rock (Uluru)

The star attraction of Australia’s Red Centre is Uluru (Ayers Rock), and there are plenty of ways to visit the famous rock. Arrive early for a sunrise viewing, hike around its base, soar overhead in a helicopter, or take a camel ride through the desert. To see nature at its best, stick around to watch the sunset and enjoy a traditional Aussie BBQ or a Sounds of Silence dinner beneath the desert stars. 

Explore the National Parks

The Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is home to both Uluru and Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), huge red rocks that tower up to 1,791 feet (546 meters) above the surrounding landscape. Further north is Litchfield National Park, known for its gigantic termite mounds and waterfalls, and Kakadu National Park. The latter, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Australia's largest national park, is known for its ancient Aboriginal rock art and crocodile-filled waters. 

Meet Darwin's Wildlife

A crocodile sighting is a coveted experience in Australia's Top End, and there are plenty of ways to get up close to the toothy reptiles. Spot them on a cruise through Mary River Wetlands, brave a jumping crocodiles cruise on the Adelaide River, or dare yourself to cage swimming with saltwater crocodiles at Darwin's Crocosaurus Cove.

Take in Kings Canyon

West of Alice Springs, Kings Canyon is one of the Northern Territory’s most remote natural wonders. Experience the dramatic red cliffs on a hike through Watarrka National Park or tackle the 3.7-mile (6-kilometer) Kings Canyon Rim Walk for expansive views. Nearby, visit the Garden of Eden waterhole and the natural landmarks of the Lost City.
