Northern Territory

 
 
The Northern Territory occupies much of the center of Australia’s mainland continent, as well as the central northern regions.
 
 
Known as the "real outback" The Northern Territory represents nature on a grand scale and contains some of the most recognisable natural icons in Australia. The Northern Territory is also renowned for the Aboriginal cultural experience it offers, with its 40,000 year old tradition.The Northern Territory is home to Australia's largest population of Aboriginal people, and contains hundreds of rare species of flora and native wildlife in the Territory's 52 national parks and nature conservation reserves.
 
 
 
Darwin is the capital city and is notable for its relaxed lifestyle and unique multiculturalism, where people from over 50 different cultures live and work side by side. Darwin's tropical climate has two major seasons, the 'dry', from May to October, and the 'wet', from November to April. Major cyclones have occurred approximately once every three decades.

Alice Springs is in the heart of central Australia and has boundless of desert landscapes, remote Aboriginal communities and a charming pioneering history. Since the start of the tourist boom in the early eighties, the population has grown to about 24,000. Alice Springs  is a great town and well worth a visit.

Not to far away from Alice Springs  is Uluru (formerly known as Ayers Rock). Uluru is one of Australia's best known natural features, the long domed rock having achieved iconic status as one of the symbols of the continent. The rock is a single pies of rock, as so-called monolith. It extends about 5 km beneath the desert plain and measures 3.6 km by 2.4 km at the surface. It rises 348 meters above the plain and has a circumference of 9.4 km. Some say that Uluru is the biggest of its kind, others say that Mount Augustus in Western Australia is bigger. During the day the rock undergoes dramatic colour changes with its normally terracotta hue gradually changing to blue or violet at sunset to flaming red in the mornings as the sun rises behind it. Close to Uluru is Kata Tjuta (formerly known as the Olgas). The whole area is known as Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and its resort town is called Yulara, where you can find accommodation of all different kinds.
