Road trip differently in the Northern Territory

Road trip differently in the Northern Territory

From the tropical Top End to the iconic Red Centre, the Northern Territory is the ultimate place to road trip differently in 2023.

The Territory is brimming with unique holiday adventures along roads and trails less travelled. Experience everything from World Heritage sites, native wildlife, sacred wonders and spectacular untouched landscapes, to immersive Aboriginal cultures, world-class fishing, crystal clear waterways and unforgettable getaways under the stars.

A road trip in the NT is the perfect way to escape the hustle and bustle, shake off the ordinary, reconnect with loved ones, and connect to cultures, traditions and landscapes that are more than 60,000 years old. Hit the open road and find expansive horizons with clear open skies, kaleidoscopic sunsets, hidden gems and iconic landmarks that will not only surprise and delight, but renew a sense of wonder in the natural world.

Whether you’re looking to catch a flight and hire a vehicle or embark on a long and winding road-trip, the NT offers an epic range of short and long drive options to suit all tastes and timelines. Choose from quick two to five day-getaways, or 4WD and campervan trips spanning 10 days and more. These include sealed and off-road routes across iconic regions such as Uluru, Kings Canyon, Alice Springs, Darwin, Katherine, Kakadu, Arnhem Land, Tennant Creek and more.

A drive adventure with a difference awaits this year in the NT – so buckle up and book the road trip of a lifetime!
