The Norther n Territory is home to World Heritage-listed Ulur u-Kata Tjuta and Kakadu National Parks, which preser ve and perpetuate natural and cultural treasures. Ter ritory Discoveries and R ACT Travelworld can help you plan your trip to the Norther n Territory -- to whet your appetite, here are four packages that will give you an idea of what is out there, just waiting for you to explore. Walk In a world that is constantly changing, it's refreshing to know that there are still places left untouched -- places where you can slow dow n and experience raw nature, far away from the typical tourist trail. Australia's Norther n Ter ritory is home to a myriad of trekking, hiking and walking adventures and tours that will take your breath away and leave you wanting more. On a day-trip to the Larapinta Trail you'll walk through landscapes of the creation time with a local Aboriginal guide and experience the ancient culture of the first Australians. The terrain is varied, from trekking along the mountain ridge then dropping dow n into the valley, before rising back up onto the ridge-top for spectacular views. Fish There's nothing quite like the adrenalin rush when you hook your first big snapper -- or even your fiftieth. And in the Territory's untouched, fish-filled waters, it's a reality. Four ways to discover the TerritoryGet a feel for what's beneath the surface on a two-day, two-night sports fishing trip in remote areas of the Top End, up to 100 kilometres offshore to the exclusive grounds of Flat Top Banks, Peron Islands, Tiwi Islands and beyond. Different speci of fish such as large flowery cod golden snapper, tricky snapper, gian trevally, red emperor and coral trou are the target. There are also some rare Indonesian varieties and real fighters such as the giant reef jack and red jew, all of which inhabit the Top End's pristine waters. Choose to stay longer and soak up all Darwin has to offer. Shoot Take your passion for photography to the next level with a stunning journey deep into Outback Australia. Six adventurous days combine the beauty, natural wonder and timelessness of some of the best parts of the Red Centre. Challenge yourself and develop your skills with tips and tuition from Grenville Tur ner, one of Australia's most highly-regarded photographers -- you'll capture unbelievable scenery and wildlife, with highlights including Uluru, Kata Tjuta, Kings Canyon and other incredible Outback landscapes. Discover Explore the amazing World Heritage- listed Kakadu National Park, barely touched by mankind. It's a place where n ature is raw, crocodiles r ule and a prehistoric landscape comes to life with fascinating flora and fauna.
