The Northern Territory

The Top End

The Northern Territory is a federal territory of Australia, situated in between the States of Queensland and Western Australia. On the coast, Darwin is the capital city of the Northern Territory. With a surface of 1.35 million square kilometres, it has a population of only 209,000 people. The Northern Territory is the most barren region of the country and is popular for the distinctive red colour of its soil. The south part of the Northern territory situated in central Australia is called the Red Centre.

The Stuart Highway is the main road going from Darwin to Alice Springs in the South. Taking this ride gives an amazing overview of the Northern Territory and offers amazing stops.

The North part of the Northern Territory, which is called the Top End, shelters the Kakadu National Park and the vast Aboriginal Arnhem Land. The Tiwi Islands (home to the Tiwi people) are also popular.

The Middle of the Northern Territory shows what the Australian outback really is; dusty, hostile and nearly totally deserted.

South of Northern Territory is called the Red Centre. It is home to the iconic rocks Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta (the Olgas). These amazing formations are internationally well-known.

In Northern Territory, visitors can enjoy a surprising diversity of landscape, a unique wildlife and Aboriginal culture.
