See Australia's scenic splendor and magnificent wildlife
This seven-day self-drive tour takes you across Australia's Northern Territory from Darwin to Alice Springs via Kakadu National Park, Katherin Gorge and Tennant Creek. Along the way you'll see some truly breathtaking scenery and wildlife, from waterfalls to wetlands to underground caves.
This morning you'll pick up your four-wheel-drive vehicle and head for Kakadu National Park. En route you may want to stop at Fogg Dam to admire the diverse birdlife, as well as at the Windows of the Wetlands Visitors Centre for an introduction to the park.
You'll spend the whole of today exploring Kakadu National Park. This is Australia's largest national park and a World Heritage Site. The breathtaking landscape, which includes floodplains, billabongs and rocky ridges, is home to huge biodiversity, including more than one-third of Australia's bird species.
Today you leave Kakadu and head to Katherine. En route, you may want to stop at the beautiful Edith Falls for a refreshing swim.
Today you're free to explore Katherine however you choose. You may want to take a cruise on Katherine Gorge or visit the atmospheric Cutta Cutta Caves, situated within their own lush park
Today you'll leave Katherine for the small town of Mataranka, famous for its thermal pools, with clear water that's perfect for snorkelling. If you didn't visit the Cutta Cutta Caves yesterday, there's time to stop en route.
You leave Mataranka today and wend your way to Tennant Creek via the towns of Daly Waters, Elliott and Renner Springs.
On the final day of your tour you'll leave Tennant Creek for Alice Springs, passing the iconic Devils Marbles, a collection of enormous granite boulders which appear to defy gravity, en route. If you have time remaining to explore Alice Springs, you might want to visit the Royal Flying Doctor Service or Panorama Guth Art Gallery.
