Journeys : October November 2009
The Norther n Ter ritory is the quintessential Australian experience and a traveller's dream. The jour ney from north to south begins on the tropical shores of vibrant Dar win and ends in the dramatic deserts of the Red Centre, taking in the cattle stations and sweeping savannahs of the Barkly Tablelands along the way. The Norther n Territory is home to World Heritage-listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta and Kakadu National Parks, which preser ve and perpetuate both natural and cultural treasures. This ama zing region is the location of the world's oldest river system, the Finke River; and Arnhem Land is the cradle of the world's oldest living culture. Ter ritory Discoveries and R ACT can help you plan your trip to the Northern Ter ritory. To whet your appetite, here are three packages that will give you an idea of what is out there, just waiting for you to e xplore. The Explore the Northern Ter ritory package gives you the opportunity to see the entire NT in style. Covering over 2900 kilometres, you'll embark on a jour ney discovering the scenic beauty of Australia's diverse landscapes. Travelling from Adelaide to Darwin on the world- famous Ghan with a free upgrade from Red Sleeper to Gold Class, this is an opportunity to travel the Outback without sacrificing any creature comforts. Explore Alice Springs on a tow n tour, and then discover Uluru and Kata Tjuta on a fully guided tour; soak up the rela xed atmosphere in Darwin enjoying a sunset cruise and cultural discovery tour and then head out the world-famous Kakadu National Park. The second package allows you to experience the beauty of the centre of Australia on a road trip, travelling by caravan, camper or 4WD. Roads include sealed, unsealed and four-wheel-drive adventure routes and allow you to explore the landscape and attractions at your own pace, with freedom and flexibility. Starting in Alice, you'll witness the astonishing birds of prey show at the Desert Park, see rock art at Rainbow Valley and then drive at your ow n pace to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, dine under a million stars and dot-paint alongside a traditional Aboriginal artist. The Norther n Ter ritory is world-renow ned as a mecca destination for fishing holidays. While fighting bar ramundi are the most sought-after trophy, other species like jewfish, queenfish, giant trevally, mangrove jack, saratoga, threadfin salmon, golden snapper, billfish, marlin and mud crabs thrive in Territory waters. This fishing package will give you the best of both worlds, with a day-trip of barra fishing and a day out looking for blue-water fish. These are both exhilarating ways to experience the Northern Ter ritory's diverse destinations. You can also stay at a remote fishing lodge or charter a mothership -- every type of angler and every type of fishing experience is catered for in the Northern Ter ritory. With its quirky characters, authentic Aboriginal experiences and awe-inspiring natural beauty, the Norther n Ter ritory is the place for your next travel adventure.
