Nature lovers flock to Australia’s Northern Territory for a tour of what some call an environmental paradise. The Northern Territory peaks and falls with the seasons and its six regions offer a very different glimpse of Australia at its finest.

Darwin, the capital of the Northern Territory, boasts year-round wonderful weather is the most urban of all the Northern Territory regions. Alice Springs is Australia’s famous outback town, and Kakadu and Arnhem Land give nature lovers a glimpse of the wetlands, gorges, and stunning waterfalls. Katherine is known for its bushwalking, fishing, camping, 4WD tours and Tennant Creek is the site of Australia’s last gold rush. Finally, Uluru and Kata Tjuta are a hikers dream, and home to Australia’s most recognisable natural icon, the Uluru (Ayers Rock).

For many travellers, your journey to NT will start from Sydney or Melbourne, and tourists can book Northern Territory flights through local carriers or head to the region by bus or car. Once there, however, it’s worth visiting one of the legendary Australian pubs for a tinnie (can of beer) and a banger (sausage) before heading into the outback.

Northern Territory climate

Sandwiched between Western Australia and Queensland, the region experiences a rainy season in the north from April to November. If you’re visiting the northern city of Darwin, you’re likely to feel the high, tropical humidity, and both spectrums of the wet and dry seasons. In the Central climate zone, the desert makes up the core, bringing a semi-arid base with little rainfall and high heat in the months between October and March.

When is the best time to fly to Northern Territory?

Because of its high variety in climate, any time of the year is convenient to book Northern Territory flights.

Peak Season: While there’s no bad time to book flights to the Northern Territory, most travellers head there during the dry season from December to March.

Off-peak Season: Less travellers visit during the rainy season, but if you intend to travel between November and April, you’re likely to find great deals on accommodations and cheap flights to the Northern Territory.  

Getting Around:

The Tour Tub Bus in Darwin connects travellers to high-profile hotels and the most popular tourist destinations, while the Darwin bus concentrates mostly on places of local interest, and stops more frequently. Buy a one-day pass, or pay per ride if you don’t expect you’ll be using it much. Other bus companies offer sightseeing tours to enhance your Northern Territory travel, but there are plenty of independent options as well.

If you’re set on renting a car or a 4WD, you can easily do so at the airport when your Northern Territory flight arrives. If not, taxis will take you from the airport to your hotel, and to other destinations within the city. Cabs are easily hailed on the street, and are reliable when called ahead of time.
