About Australia

9 Day Territory Unleashed North Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Alice Springs/Kata Tjuta/Uuru

Get this Northern Territory adventure underway with a visit to a working outback camel farm. Perhaps opt to take in the Red Centre's desert from atop one of these 'ships of the desert'. Hike through the winding gullies of Kata Tjuta on a Valley of the Winds walk, then take in a magical Uluru sunset before heading back to camp.

Day 2 Uluru/Watarka National Park (Kings Canyon)

Why not rise early to watch the sun bedecking the surrounding landscape in colour. Get up closer to the world's largest rock on a walk around its base and learn what the site means to the area's Indigenous people.

Day 3 Watarrka National Park/Alice Springs

Enter Watarrka National Park and explore the sheer rock walls, spectacular panoramas, sandstone domes and lush waterhole of Kings Canyon.

Day 4 Alice Springs

Enjoy a free day getting to know Alice Springs on your terms. Small though the town may be, there are plenty of things to see and do here. Take a stroll through the Olive Pink Botanic Garden, pop into the Alice Springs Reptile Centre or check out the site of the world's only dry river regatta. In the evening, why not organise to have dinner at one of the local pubs for a true-blue Aussie experience.

Day 5 Alice Springs/Karlu Karlu (Devils Marbles)/Daly Waters

Head off for a visit to the iconic Karlu Karlu, or 'Devils Marbles'. Hear the story behind the formation of these gigantic boulders before continuing on to Tennant Creek for lunch. When evening falls, camp out beneath the stars for a taste of peaceful outback solitude.

Day 6 Katherine Gorge/Darwin

Start the day with an exploration of Nitmiluk National Park. Meaning the 'Place of the Cicada Dreaming' in the Jawoyn language, it’s a stunning place to explore. Take a short walk to Barrawei Lookout for an incredible view of Katherine Gorge before learning about the significance of this area to the Jawoyn people. Stop for a swim in the refreshing waters of Edith Falls before journeying to tropical Darwin, the Territory’s culture-rich capital city.

Day 7 Darwin/Kakadu

Enjoy a traditional welcome from the Limilngan–Wulna people. Learn about the culture and ancient history of this Indigenous group, then journey to the Mary River Wetlands, where saltwater crocodiles rule the waters. Arrive in Ubirr for a spectacular sunset and the chance to see Aboriginal rock art that’s thousands of years old.

Day 8 Twin and Jim Jim Falls

Take a boat cruise with a national park ranger through the chasm of a gorge to witness Twin Falls up close – the dwarfing magnitude of this chasm invokes a sense of just how small we really are. After lunch, hike to the base of Jim Jim Falls, where a swim or laze on the beach is an excellent way to wile away the afternoon.

Day 9 Kakadu/Darwin

Plunge into the refreshing waters of Maguk Gorge before working up a sweat hiking to the top of Gunlom Falls, where a series of swimming holes await your arrival. In the afternoon, head back to lively Darwin.
