Aboriginal culture in the Northern Territory

Visit the Northern Territory and immerse yourself in the stories, artworks and ancient traditions of the world’s oldest continuous living culture.

Connection to Country is very much a part of the NT’s identity where the breadth and depth of cultural experiences on offer to visitors are like nowhere else.

There are many ways to learn and connect with Aboriginal culture throughout the Top End and Red Centre, whether it's through taking a locally guided tour; exploring the galleries and attractions along the Territory Art Trails or by venturing on a road trip through World Heritage-listed national parks to witness the incredible ancient rock art sites for yourself.

From cultural festivals by the sea in Darwin to desert choirs in Alice Springs and bustling Aboriginal art fairs – the NT acknowledges the traditional owners and celebrates Aboriginal culture as an intrinsic part of the Territory’s identity.
