Cheap flights to Northern Territory

Australia’s Northern Territory is just where you think it’d be - at the northern end of the Austra-lian continent. Sitting across the Timor and Arafura Seas from Papua New Guinea, the Top End - as the Northern Territory is sometimes referred as - is one of the largest federal divisions in Aus-tralia, at more than 1 million square kilometres in area (it occupies a sixth of the entire continent). The region, however, has a pretty small population for its size (only about 200,000 live there) ma-king it the least densely population region of the country.

To make up for its lack of human residents, the Northern Territory comes rich with diverse natu-ral beauty - from out-of-the-world rock formations to amazing national parks, plains and deserts, woodlands and islands to the iconic Australian outback, the Northern Territory is a good place to see all the wild, untamed beauty that Australia has to offer.

Getting around

One of the best ways to get around the Northern Territory is by car - with scenic routes a-plenty and a well-developed, extensive network of roads, a driving holiday in the Top End can be fun, enjoyable, incredibly scenic and easy. Try a road trip along the Red Centre Way, Nature’s Way, Savannah Way or Binns Track - you definitely won’t regret that money spent on your rental ve-hicle after that.

What to see and do

The Northern Territory’s Ayers Rock (also known as Uluru) is considered the spiritual heart of Australia, making it a must-see for any tourist wanting a true understanding of this unique, rug-ged country. With beauty so stunning and unique that it is guaranteed to melt the heart of the most skeptical traveller, Uluru - an immense, contoured rock formation in the most fetching shade of red - sits amidst the desert, framed by the blue of the sky and the earthy tones of the surrounding wilderness. Intimidating yet inviting at the same time, don’t miss the Rock’s colour-changing feature performance at sunrise and sunset - it deepens from reddish-brown to a velvety shade of scarlet and all the way to black during sunset, and vice versa during sunrise. More than just a pretty face, Uluru - a sacred rock to the Anangu Aboriginal people - comes with rock caves, waterholes and springs just nearby.

After that, head over to Australia’s largest national park and UNESCO World Heritage Site - Kakadu National Park - for some flora and fauna that you won’t be able to find anywhere else in the world. With an area of more than 20,000 square kilometres, Kakadu is home to more than one third of Australia’s bird species and one-quarter of its freshwater and estuarine fish species.
