Darwin offers once in a lifetime opportunities to spot crocodiles, see birds of prey, marvel at pristine waterfalls and fly over World Heritage Listed Kakadu National Park.

Pre-and-post cruise overland excursions to Australia’s Red Centre to see Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) and Watarrka (King’s Canyon) are a bucket list drawcard for international travellers, along with luxury wilderness lodges and outback cattle stations.

A rain journey on The Ghan is a great way for train enthusiasts to see the centre of Australia.

Ask the Expert - Why Cruise the Northern Territory?

'Darwin is the home port for expedition cruising along Australia’s northern coastline – the Kimberleys to the west and remote Arnhem Land to the east. These small, intimate cruises take guests to areas only accessible by small ship and visit remote indigenous communities where guests can experience firsthand the world’s oldest living culture.'  Tony Clementson Manager Destination Development Top End Region, Tourism Northern Territory.
