Northern Territory Travel Guide

The Northern Territory is a diverse region home to a rich history, ancient culture and an abundance of natural wonders. Some of the last remaining genuine outback, the Northern Territory makes up the central northern and mainland regions of Australia, bordered by South Australia, Western Australia and Queensland in the east. Also home to a rather unique range of wildlife, the Northern Territory is renowned as an adventurous and unforgettable holiday destination.

Northern Territory Accommodation

Northern Territory accommodation is unlike most of what you find in the rest of the country. Although there are still hotels and resorts found in city centres or along the esplanade in Darwin, the rest of the accommodation is spread out across the wide red land of the Kakadu, Alice Springs and Uluru (Ayers Rock). These types of accommodation present a much more unique experience including camping, safari tents, outback cattle stations and bed and breakfasts. However you choose to experience the Northern Territory, there's an accommodation option to suit your tastes and budget.
