Outback NT Area Highlights & Essential Things To Do
Discover Your Local Outback NT Area
In the land of sweeping plains, mountains, floods and droughts, the outback of Northern Territory lays ready to be discovered. Found in the heart of the country, the outback encapsulates traditional and authentic Australian landscapes on land, water and sky. Celebrating both ancient and modern communities, the region is home to a variety of Indigenous cultures, protected and accessible national parks and native wildlife, as well as plenty of things to do.
Stretched across the entire state, the outback is comprised of a total of five regions including the popular attractions Alice Springs and Katherine . Be guided by locals down the flood plains of Katherine and spot a crocodile before grabbing authentic bush tucker to satisfy the cravings. Bring the family to Tennant Creek in July when the Northern Territory celebrates Territory Day to mark self-governance and independence in the territory.
Discover hidden waterfalls, untouched bush walking trails and ancient cultures who call the region home. Take a dip in the cool waters of Kakadu National Park or cast a line and try your luck in Carpentaria. The outback stretches from Darwin to the Alice, a vast area that completes the Northern Territory. Don’t miss a thing and head further inland on tour to Central Australia to behold the beauty and magnificence that is Uluru/ Ayres Rock.
Escape the city and head outback in the Northern Territory. Home to red sands, dense bushland, blue skies and bluer waters, experience the authentic Australian outback all year round. There’s more to the Northern Territory than you think.
