The Northern Territory

The Northern Territory

You will be surprised what you will find In The NT

The Northern Territory is a stunning place to visit filled with red dirt landscapes, beautiful sunsets, crocodiles and towns/cities such as Darwin, Katherine, Tennant Creek, Alice Springs and many, many other outback and regional centres.

IntheNT ( is an inexpensive space to promote and present information on things to do and places to go in the Northern Territory, a directory of tourist related information and services.

Starting at the very top is Darwin which is a vibrant and ever expanding city right on the Arafura Sea. You will find boutique shops, an abundance of restaurants, museums, markets and the best sunsets you may ever see almost every single day.

Moving south you have Palmerston, Litchfield National Park and Kakadu amongst other places. The national parks are amazing places to visit all year round. You will find birds, buffalo's and of course the famous crocodiles. Unfortunately it is not safe to enter the water in most places in the NT but during the dry season you can usually swim at the waterfalls in many places once the crocodiles have migrated.

Further south you will find Mataranka the NT's famous hot springs where you can swim in the surrounds of the beautiful bushland and Katherine where you can camp, hike and travel down the gorge by ferry and if you feel up to it kayak a bit further down.

If you are down that way you should pay a visit to Alice Springs. Again a place like no other where during the dry season temperatures can get down to single digits.

From Alice Springs you can travel to Uluru and the surrounding areas and visit the rock. It is said that when the sun rises you can see the colour of the rock change and develop and sunset is a wonderful time to see the rock in all it's glory.

Some say the dry season during Australia's winter is the perfect time to visit the NT with cool breezy sunny days and less balmy nights where you will find Territorians and tourists alike out and about enjoying the weather. You shouldn't discount the wet season for a visit though because even if it is raining there is so much to do and the lightening shows are simply spectacular.
