Where to stay in Northern Territory

About Northern Territory

Rugged and remote, the Northern Territory is one of Australia’s most magical destinations. Colloquially known as the Top End, the feeling of wildness and isolation is a feast for the senses. Arnhem Land is an incredible place to experience the magnetism of Indigenous culture, with a rich history dating back 40,000 years. For postcard perfect snapshots, visiting Alice Springs and majestic Uluru is a must.

Darwin is the beating heart of the territory, with backpackers making a beeline for the buzzing bars and restaurants of Mitchell Street. Thanks to its proximity to Asia, the city also serves up a wonderfully multicultural mix of food and fiery sunsets.

The Northern Territory is isolated and is Australia’s most sparsely populated region. Major settlements are connected via a network of sealed roads, but for off-the-beaten-track experiences, a 4WD vehicle is a must. Riding the rails from Adelaide to Darwin is a quintessential Top End adventure, though most visitors arrive via car or Darwin International Airport.

The Northern Territory wasn’t settled by the British until 1825, though prior to this local Indigenous Australian people had maintained extensive seasonal trade links with Indonesia for five centuries. Interestingly, in 1912 there were rumours of changing the Northern Territory’s title to Kingsland, Centralia or Territoria. However the campaign never gained momentum today the region proudly retains its “NT” title.
