Some Of What Darwin Has To Offer The Australian
When first embarking upon travel in the Northern Territory, the best place to start from will be its capital of Darwin. Here you'll find hotels, hostels and the starting point for tours into the surrounding national parklands. These include world-famous Kakadu National Park, Litchfield National Park and Katherine Gorge. While here be sure to visit Lake Alexander, Casuarina Beach and the George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens. Also, find weekly markets at Mindil Beach on thursdays and sundays during the dry season.
Kakadu National Park reaches 200 kilometres from north to south and over 100 kilometres from east to west. It can provide you with days and days of breathtaking scenery and wildlife. It also features thousands of years of Aboriginal history, seen in the numerous rock-art sites located around the park. The sacred sites located here play a key role in their traditional beliefs system. If you enjoy cliffs, plateaus and waterfalls, plus the thrill of nature be sure to make a stopover here.
The next location of importance is Alice Springs, closer to Australia's Red Centre. The desert lifestyle has spawned many unique and exciting events such as the Camel Cup, the Henley-on-Todd Regatta, Beanie Festival and the Finke Desert Race (located 400km south in the Simpson Desert). Many travellers pass through here on their way south to Adelaide, or to Australia's famous icon - Uluru.
Uluru has become the icon of Australia's centre. It is also an extremely important spiritual location for the native people of the area. Climbing it is an option for travellers on their way through here, but is not fully supported by Aboriginal groups.
Some of its mysticism comes from its ability to change colours as the day passes. It glows a beautiful red as the sun sets. Accommodation here can be found at the Ayers Rock Resort.
