Just like the diversity of its natural icons, activities and characters, there’s plenty of accommodation options across the Northern Territory.
Choose from luxury resorts, safari-style glamping, hotels and serviced apartments to well-equipped caravan and camping grounds — there are places to suit every creature comfort and budget.
Many have restaurants, bars and pools to refresh and relax in after those adventurous days, and some allow you to share your exhilarating experiences with your pets, so they aren’t left at home.
To help plan where to stay during your NT road trip, we’ve created this easy guide.
The Northern Territory’s capital city, Darwin is unlike any other. While there are many high-rise buildings, its relaxed and laidback lifestyle encourages you to take your time and go with the flow. Linger longer over good coffee in one of the cafes, tingle your tastebuds with multi-ethnic cuisines and open-air markets, toast the sensational sunsets with tropical cocktails or enjoy the lively nightlife on Mitchell Street. Rest assured, whatever accommodation you choose, whether it’s lazing around the beachside lagoon pool at Mindil Beach Casino Resort, tasting a different morsel of Territory cuisine every night while kicking back at any of the Darwin Waterfront Precinct properties, or unhooking the caravan or pitching a tent at the pet-friendly tropical surrounds of Free Spirit Resort; you’ll find all the comforts you expect and more while staying in Darwin — you may not want to leave.
