Top 5 Things to Do in the Northern Territory

Share :

Six times the size of Britain, Australia’s Northern Territory is the home of the real outback. Welcoming and laid back, the NT is known around the world for its iconic natural treasures, ancient Aboriginal culture, birds and wildlife, dramatic landscapes, opportunities for adventure and colourful characters. Here are 5 of the best things to do in the Northern Territory.

1. Fish for the famous silver barramundi

Beginners to experienced anglers can have one of the NT’s best experiences: fishing for barramundi, a fish prized for its exhilarating fight and enormous leaps out of the water. Join one of the many tours from Darwin that cater for all visitors, or go remote into Arnhem Land where the fishing is some of the world’s best. Try helifishing for the ultimate NT barramundi adventure. Register for the NT’s Million Dollar Fish competition for the chance to win a million dollars!

2. Meet Aboriginal artists and watch them work

The Northern Territory’s Aboriginal art is sold all over the world, and meeting the artists on their land and watching them work is a must-do NT experience. There are art centres spread all over the NT. Visit the three world-renowned galleries on the Tiwi Islands north of Darwin or sit with the Maruku artists near Uluru. Or join in the many Aboriginal art festivals held all over the NT, like the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair, Walking with Spirits at Beswick near Katherine or Desert Mob in Alice Springs.

3. Cruise Nitmiluk (Katherine) Gorge at dawn

Wake early for one of the NT’s most special experiences—cruising peacefully up Nitmiluk (Katherine) Gorge in Nitmiluk National Park as dawn breaks. Drift past Aboriginal rock art with the changing colours of the dawn light, mist rising from the water and wildlife stirring on the bank. Learn about the ancient Aboriginal culture of this area. Don’t forget your camera.

4. See ancient Aboriginal rock art in Kakadu National Park

See for yourself why Kakadu’s rock art is world class and one of the reasons for its dual World Heritage status. Visit Kakadu’s rock art galleries at Ubirr, Nourlangie and Nanguluwur and see their fascinating record of Aboriginal life over thousands of years. You’ll see images of animals, Dreamtime figures, traditional x-ray art and paintings of early contact with European people. Some paintings are 20 000 years old. Join the free guided walks that run in the dry season.

5. Watch the changing colours of Uluru at sunset

One of the best times to see Uluru—Australia’s most famous landmark—is at sunset as the sun hits it on its way down, changing the colour of the rock from a sizzling red to burnt orange to a deep purple as the light fades. This incredible spectacle draws visitors from all over the world. Catch an Uluru sunset from one of the viewing areas or join a gourmet dinner, watch it from atop a camel, on the back of a Harley Davidson motorcycle, or you can even do a sunset skydive.
