Northern Territory Tours

Planning your Northern Territory tours can seem like an impossible bucket list to choose from. There’s the humid capital of Darwin to explore, the intrepid Kakadu & Litchfield National Parks to navigate your way through, cascading waterfalls to swim under and great big crocodiles to avoid, but the NT is so much bigger than all of that!

If you’re looking to make the most out of an NT tour, then a trip further south to Alice Springs needs to be firmly on your list. Alice Springs is the launchpad to exploring the world famous Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) and Kings Canyon to name a mere handful.

Darwin to Alice Springs Express

Heading on a Darwin to Alice Springs express tour will stand you in good stead for seeing many of these ancient and natural wonders as you make your way to Australia’s Red Centre for your outback adventure.

Combining travel and sightseeing is a sure fire way to keep your travel wallet a bit healthier too in the process. Hopping on a tour bus at Darwin will see you in good company with like-minded travellers as you pass through sites such as Edith Falls, the Mataranka Thermal Springs, and the Devils Marbles before reaching Alice Springs.

Adding in a 3-day rock tour will mean visiting Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon as well as sleeping under the stars and trying some propper Aussie grub in the form of kangaroo and camel.

The Darwin to Alice Springs Express is also available in reverse.
