Experience the epic landscapes and natural beauty of the Outback.

Don't be deterred by its size – you can still experience the grandeur of the Northern Territory with only a few days up your sleeve. This trip, short on time but big on sights, will get you from Darwin down to Alice Springs with a whole lot of action in between. Visit Nitmiluk National Park for a swim in Edith Falls and hike up to Baruwei Lookout. Sink your teeth into quintessential outback pub culture at the Daly Waters Hotel and wander about the boulder-strewn sacred site of Karlu Karlu (the Devil's Marbles). For those pressed for time but with a yearning to experience the Red Centre, this is your trip.
