Aboriginal culturein the Northern Territory
Australia’s Northern Territory is home to the world’s oldest living continuous culture. Immerse yourself in the stories, artworks and ancient traditions spanning more than 60,000 years through Aboriginal guided tours and experiences.
The celebration of Aboriginal culture is an intrinsic part of the Northern Territory’s identity. Aboriginal culture is one of the most distinct, unique and diverse aspects of the Northern Territory. From red desert to saltwater country; from traditional ceremonial practices to world-class contemporary arts, the story of Aboriginal culture is globally iconic.
Experience these rich cultures and traditions firsthand by venturing on a road trip through the World Heritage-listed national parks of Uluru-Kata Tjuta or Kakadu, or East of Darwin into Arnhem Land.
Or join a guided tour with Karrke, Top Didj or Pudakul. Spark creativity with a dot painting tour with Maruku Arts or Ayeye Atyenhe Art. Embark on an island art and culture tour with Tiwi By Design and marvel at ancient rock art with Yibekka and Nitmiluk Tours. Share the wonders of a safari retreat at Davidson’s, or explore and stay with Cooinda Lodge. There’s plenty of ways to experience and immerse yourself in Aboriginal culture and history.
