At rock art sites we saw a range of art work depicting everything from the ginga (saltwater crocodile), brolgas, turtles and Mimi Spirits, to depictions of men hunting barramundi & wallabies. This is how the stories are told and passed down from generation to generation of the Aboriginal people... Trevor, Product Department

Sitting at the top of a rocky outcrop, staring across the iridescent floodplains with the sun setting in the distance is an absolute marvel. Imagine that this is your home, a place you spend every night, appreciating nature at its very best, living off the land. Discover living Aboriginal culture, rich with traditions over 40,000 years old as you journey through the Top End. An enriching experience, connect with the locals and gain an understanding and appreciation for their way of life. A trip through the Top End is a deep cultural voyage; prepare to soak it up…

When there are so many suggestions of natural wonders to explore, places to see, history to experience, culture to connect with and wild animals to observe, you need someone who knows what they’re talking about. Someone to point you in the right direction.

Stay at Maud Creek Country Lodge in Katherine

Nothing compares to packing away the map, leaving the brochures behind and joining a local for a wander around their back yard. The depth of knowledge, the passion for the area and the insider tips make you feel like you’re getting under the skin of the place, rather than just skimming the surface. And you avoid that big neon sign flashing ‘tourist’ above your head. Bird watching tours, photography tours, cultural tours, food & wine tours, fishing tours, hiking tours, camping tours or just a regular escorted tour, there’s something to suit everyone’s interests!

If you’re the sort who likes to spike their holiday with a dash of adventure, sneaking away from the poolside to do something you can tell a story about when you get home, then the Territory’s got you covered. Board a charter boat, grab a fishing rod, and next thing you know, you’ll be reeling in a barramundi. Maybe banging tent pegs in is more your thing – why not do it where the stars twinkle like garlands of fairy lights? Or jump in a kayak and paddle through ancient red walls of rock, brushed with Aboriginal rock art. Whatever your passion, we’re confident you’ll find an adventure in the Territory!

It was my 4th visit to Kakadu but this time was different... I was on a trekking & camping tour through the heart of Kakadu & Nitmiluk National Parks. One day we hiked Edith Falls to Sweetwater Pool (8.6km return), where we were the only ones swimming in the waterfalls.

Our Kakadu campsite for the night was powered by large solar panels that they truck in at the beginning of the dry season to power the generators. Our guide explained that a permanent structure could possibly be washed away during the wet. I was impressed by the commitment the campsite had in creating portable solar panels!

A destination filled with diverse natural beauty, we view it as our responsibility to look after these natural and cultural assets, for the enjoyment of visitors in a sustainable way. By actively and consciously choosing to experience the Top End via this range of selected cultural tour operators, you are helping to protect Indigenous land, preserve Aboriginal culture and provide development opportunities for future generations. Think smart, be green and choose a holiday that will ensure others can appreciate it in the future too!

Traditional Indigenous Dance, Darwin Festival

We’d driven about 600 kilometres, roughly the same driving distance from Frankfurt to Paris, but on the map it looks like we’ve only moved around the corner. The sunsets up here are indescribable and the best thing to do is to just sit back, relax and take in all the beauty that our backyard has to offer. Ian, Holiday Consultant

So much happening every day onboard the ship - we did absolutely everything there was to do, zodiac adventures sometimes twice a day, theatre lectures, fishing, art sites, gorges, helicopter rides, fast boats, food, food and more food, dancing, captains cocktails and champagne! What an experience!!! Marlene, Business Development

Picture this: you’re coasting along at 100 kilometres per hour through the heart of Australia, sipping on champagne as you gaze across the Territory’s red dirt landscapes peppered with giant rocks and deep cut gorges. You reach a similar state of joy when you’re lulled to sleep by the gentle rocking of a luxury boat after spending the day cruising bottle green island edges and deep blue fish filled waters. With every whim catered, enjoy the journey just as much as each destination. Treat yourself to an unforgettable adventure by rail or cruise ship!

October to December is the hottest time and is the best time for wildlife watching.

Whether you’re a life long fan or a total beginner, the adrenaline pumping thrill of fishing in the Northern Territory will have you hooked from when you first shout, “I got one!” You’ve got your pick of fresh and salt water in the Top End, and in many places, the two flow side by side, making our waterways ideal for anglers. Throw in a line in a picturesque billabong, drop your sinker in a pandanusfringed estuary or float in the turquoise ocean and see what bites.

Become an honorary Territorian when you hook your first barramundi. The muscular, meaty fish puts up an impressive fight, and it’s seen as quite an achievement if you can snag one. Seek a barra out in remote, outback waters with the help of an Indigenous guide – you’ll be competing with the crocs. Try your hand at reef and fly fishing where queenfish, threadfin salmon and giant trevally run. Catch a fish bigger than you, where the waters are virtually untouched. No matter what time of year, the fish are biting, so get over here and bait up.

Kakadu is a huge and remote region encompassing magnificent contrasts of a variety of different landscapes. High trees mask Kakadu’s and Arnhem Land’s best scenic secrets. A view from above offers a kaleidoscope of ancient sandstone erosion, defiant escarpments, rugged gorges, vast floodplains, winding rivers and placid billabongs. Views that can only be fully appreciated when seen from an aircraft. A half hour flight is an affordable way to see many of the ecosystems of Kakadu and neighbouring Arnhem Land, stunning sights of rugged eroded sandstone, the white sands of the East Alligator River, and the placid Magela Floodplains. For the adventurous take a one hour flight, its twice the time but much more than twice the distance travelled, the pilot can access some of the best views that are just that bit further away. In the dry season the flight extends the dry season route to include Dinosaur Valley, then much deeper into Arnhem Land, follow the East Alligator river out of the rock country onto the vast floodplains where it winds a confused pathway towards the distant coast.

‘I just want to get away from it all,’ is the mantra we chant as we talk about going on holiday. Escape the crowds, the mobile phone and the knowledge that you’ve got to go back to work soon and feel the stress fall away with each kilometre you travel. While traditional outback camping still holds a certain allure, the option of exclusive, luxury holidays in remote locations is a tempting alternative.

This fragile ecosystem is alive with an extraordinary variety of birdlife and wildlife. Agile wallabies, dingoes, brumbies, buffalo and goannas are all regular sightings, however, it is the prolific birdlife that makes this area a unique nature attraction. With the annual monsoon the floodwaters from Arnhem Land usher in an annual cycle of environmental rebirth and the floodplains are replenished with water and life. As the year progresses the waters retreat and the vast plains come into view again.
