ADVENTURE CAPITAL OF OZ: Discover the pumping heart of the Northern Territory

There's no shortage of adrenaline pumping, adventure seeking activities in the NT.

There’s no shortage of adrenaline pumping, adventure seeking activities in the NT.

Home to rich Australian culture, jaw snapping reptiles and incredible raw landscapes, there won’t be a dull moment in sight!

And if you’re busting to know exactly what items should be on your bucket list? Well strap yourself in, your NT adventure awaits…




The ‘Big Smoke’. The starting point of any good walkabout tour, and there is plenty to do in the Top End so don’t be content with sitting in a hotel…

Make your way first thing to feed the crocs some brekky at Crocosaurus Cove, followed by the 15 minute, adrenaline pumping croc dive! Only a couple of centimetres of stuff separating you from one of the oldest predators on the planet! YES!


Litchfield National Park!


Only about an hour and a bit to get to from Darwin, you could probably walk across it in 3 or 4 days! But hey where’s the fun in that? Take your adventure to the next level and view the epic waterfalls by helicopter and land at a private waterhole, just to yourself!

Whether you’re up for a bush walk, wildlife spotting, swimming or just want to get back to nature, it’s definitely worth taking a tour on the ground at Litchfield National Park.




After a quick trip back to Darwin, grab the keys, hop in the 4WD, pack some extra water and fuel, then plough through into Kakadu National Park. An adventure playground for those wanting to get active.

When you’re not bouncing the 4WD off rocks and mountains, you’ll be fording streams, swimming in billabongs, hiding behind waterfalls and oooo-ing at all the amazing wildlife Australia’s Outback has to offer.


Alice Springs to ULURU!


Experience the NT’s pioneering past in Alice Springs, then hop on a camel and start the trek to Uluru!! It’s a heck of a long way, so you may need to jump off the camel and drive at some point if you’re on a bit of time restriction, (or if things are starting getting pretty uncomfortable).


The red centre


The most iconic rock monolith on Earth, Uluru has stood solid and alone on the landscape for thousands of years.

The adventure here is one of culture and spirituality. Immerse yourself in the Dreamtime with an Aboriginal guide taking you around the base of the beast. To top off your Uluru experience, take a 30 minute Heli flight to see Uluru and Kata Tjuta from a new angle – a high one!

Finish up with a night visit to the Field of Light and a dinner under the stars.


There you have it folks! An adventure filled holiday for those wanting to get more life, adventure and culture out of their NT experience.
