Kakadu National Park, Northern Territory

When planning our road trip around Australia, Kakadu and Uluru were listed as our must things to do in the Northern Territory.

We soon discovered that the Northern Territory has so much more to offer and our quick drive through the state extended into nearly two months of adventures and some of our most memorable moments on our trip.

If you want to experience the heart of Australia – spiritually, culturally and physically then you must spend a while exploring the Northern Territory.

On this page you will find our best Northern Territory travel tips including things to do in Darwin, Uluru, Kakadu, Litchfield National Park, the West MacDonnel Ranges and more.

Within each article you’ll get suggestions on where to eat and drink, where to sleep, how to get around, and the best things to see and do.
