Northern Territory

Travel Guide

With a terrain as vast as it is diverse, Australia's Northern Territory offers authentic Australian adventures that are still off the beaten track. 

From the dusty, red outback formations of Uluru and King's Canyon, to the tropical jungle of Kakadu National Park, this is a land where crocodiles and camels roam, waterfalls plummet and the locals are some of Australia's most interesting. Take a walk on the wild side!

When is the best time to visit Northern Territory?

Australia's Northern Territory is a year-round destination which stays mostly warm and sunny, but if you want to make the most of the gorgeous beaches and national parks in the tropical northern part, we suggest you head there between December and March - during Australia's summer. The driest periods in this part of Northern Territory fall between May and October, when it's only a little cooler but there's less chance of rain. 

The Red Centre has a different climate entirely. This dry, arid expanse experiences super-hot summers from November to February, whereas during British summertime, it can get pretty cold, especially at night.
