Northern Territory Locations
The Northern Territory features some of Australia's most well known regions such as Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kakadu National Park. It also features amazing wildlife, Aboriginal Art and Culture and excellent fishing.
Central Australia - often referred to as The Centre or the Red Centre - situated in the southern end of the Northern Territory is dry, sparsely vegetated and even more sparsely populated. The landscape is starkly beautiful and renowned for its chameleon-like quality as it changes colour and shape many times between dawn and dusk. This area has been evolving for more than 650 million years and all the landforms; trees, gorges and riverbeds and the flora and fauna have special and sacred significance for the indigenous people. A great base to explore Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) from is Longitude 131, and touring with expert guides from Discovery Ecotours is a must.
The Top End is subtropical and located 12 degrees south of the equator. The area is characterised by lush green vegetation, world heritage wetlands and an incredible variety of wildlife. The diversity of the landscape, with its magnificent natural attractions and close connection to Aboriginal people creates an interesting and fascinating location to excite the senses and invigorate the spirit. The climate is divided into wet and dry seasons, rather than summer and winter.
While in the Top End, experience a helicopter swooping low to flush wild bulls from thick undergrowth; sturdy jeeps career and lurch amidst swirls of red dust; adrenaline rushes as the bulls are mustered - all of which you can possibly enjoy at Bullo River Station. An adventure to thrill even the most travelled.
Travel by Kakadu Helicopter Safaris and venture into Kakadu National Park. Imagine waking in your bungalow to the strange calls of brilliant and exotic birds and gazing out over the expansive wetlands. Imagine skimming across the water on an airboat as wild buffalo explode through carpets of water lilies and countless birds take flight. Watch carefully and see huge crocodiles disappear into the lagoon with the flick of a tail.
