Visit Australia’s Northern Territory: glamping

As the name suggests, the Northern Territory of Australia is situated in the northernmost part of Australia and extends down into the center of the country. It shares its borders with Western Australia, South Australia, and Queensland. Visit Australia’s Northern Territory and you’ll quickly see why it is one of the most unique places you could go glamping. Home to what is called the ‘Red Centre’, the Northern Territory has an extraordinary desert landscape with some of the most unique rock formations and some of Aboriginal Australia’s most sacred sites, like Uluru and Kata Tjuta. On your Northern Territory adventure, don’t miss Uluru and watching the rocks change color at sunrise or sunset; make sure to take a dip in the Redbank Gorge or swim in the waterfalls of Kakadu; dine under the stars and learn about Aboriginal culture and history. The Northern Territory takes visitors past the crowds of Sydney to what really feels like the final frontier. It is a mecca for adventure and thrill-seekers, home to jaw-dropping national parks, important Aboriginal cultural hubs, monumental deserts, and even tropical towns like the capital, Darwin. Go glamping and explore the Northern Territory!

The Northern Territory is a vast state and to see it all you will have to cover a lot of ground. We will cover the highlights and main things to do in Australia’s Northern Territory. Most visitors will fly into Alice Springs, in the southern part of the state and begin their holiday from there. The most iconic thing to do and see in the Northern Territory, in the Red Centre, is Uluru. 350 meters high (1150 feet), Uluru is a giant rock formation and a spiritual site for the local Aboriginal people. Make sure to go at sunrise or sunset to see the colors of the sun dance off the rock. About 110 kilometers (70 miles) from Alice Springs are the West MacDonnell Ranges, home to great swimming holes and the Pound Walk, which leads you through the ancient valleys of the desert.

Top things to see in the Northern Territory

Despite the vast expanses of desert and uninhabited land, the Northern Territory has numerous tourist attractions and things to see. The Northern Territory is one of the states in Australia with the highest percentage of Aboriginal communities, due mostly to the harsh conditions which made it difficult for Europeans to settle there. This has resulted in a culture that thrives from its indigenous influence and has helped Northern Territory stand out as a truly unique place to visit and experience. In the Red Centre, places like Uluru and Kata Tjuta let visitors get close to Aboriginal culture and spiritual sites. Mataranka Thermal Pool is a great swimming hole to visit and cool off in; or, head to Litchfield National Park and check out the Buley Rockhole, which is a group of descending waterfalls and swimming pools! All the way to the north is the capital city of Darwin, a tropical city made famous for its great food, outdoor markets, and sense of adventure!
