If you like your holidays with a dose of adrenaline, a smattering of exhilaration and a spoonful of the unknown, there’s plenty in the Territory to keep you on your toes.

On the ground

There’s no shortage of adventure tours or if you’d prefer to go it alone, hire a vehicle and take a road trip. Choose from short morning strolls to multi-day hiking experiences such as the Top End's epic Jatbula Trail or the Larapinta Trail in the Red Centre.

From the air

Launch into a scenic flight over a waterfall in Kakadu National Park or see Australia's best known icon from every angle in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. For a change of pace, book a hot-air balloon ride around Alice Springs for spectacular views over the MacDonnell Ranges.

Along the water

Getting out on the water is a must when in the Northern Territory. Hire a canoe or kayak to explore along the impressive sandstone walls at Nitmiluk Gorge. Jump on one of the many fishing charters in the Top End or spot crocodiles in the wild on an adventure boat cruise.
