Northern Territory Travel toATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
The Northern Territory, Australia's largest territory, is home to six main destinations, as diverse as can be imagined. From Uluru and Ayers Rock, the arid Red Centre, wetlands of Kakadu, national parks, to the seas in the north.
It's home to two World Heritage sites, Kakadu and Uluru-Kata Tjuta.
Darwin, the capital city, is one of Australia's most modern cities, having been destroyed after World War II attacks and then by Cyclone Tracy in 1974.
Darwin's multicultural influences are evident throughout the city, especially the art and traditions of the indigenous Aboriginal and Islander peoples.
Northern Territory's many offerings of beautiful scenery, outdoor activities, festivals and ease of travel make it a favorite Australian destination.
