The Northern Territory is back open for business. The third largest state/territory in Australia, the NT spans 1.4 million square metres, which means there’s a whole lot of ground to cover.
From the Red Centre of Alice Springs to the lush national parks and beachfront vistas of Darwin’s city centre, it’s a traveller’s playground. Whether you’ve got the kids in tow, you’re on a retirement adventure, or you’re looking for a romantic weekend away in the wilderness, there’s something to fill everyone’s travel cup.
We’ve put together a list of top experiences and places to visit if you’re planning a trip up to the Top End.
Litchfield National Park
Just 60-minutes south of Darwin, Litchfield National Park is great for a day trip if you’re using the city as your base. Water holes, waterfalls and vine forests are just some of the natural wonders that abound in this NT secret.
Often overlooked for beautiful Kakadu, locals say ‘Litchy’ is a must-visit. Spanning an incredible 1500 square kilometres, the national park has a number of different routes and landmarks to glimpse when you’re travelling through. Some of the more unique include magnetic termite mounds and the iconic Lost City which features a cluster of sandstone pillars that have stood the test of time.
If you’re on the road, why not stay the night in your campervan or caravan? There are a number of licensed campgrounds on offer around Litchfield. If you’re feeling adventurous, set out on a 3-day tour where you can explore Kakadu and Litchfield in a 4WD, camping along the way.
