Six times the size of Britain, Australia’s Northern Territory is the home of the real outback. The Northern Territory occupies about one sixth of Australia’s total land mass, with a population of about 200,000, and is known around the world for its iconic natural treasures, including World Heritage-Listed national parks of Kakadu and Uluru-Kata Tjuta (Ayers Rock), and an ancient Aboriginal culture.
The Territory boasts around 400 bird species, almost half of all bird species found in Australia. With stark contrasts from the arid Southern Deserts to the lush tropical wetlands of the north, the birdwatching and wildlife experiences are many and varied and world class.
Darwin, the laid-back capital of the Territory, offers the shortest flying time to Australia from the UK with Qantas or Singapore Airlines, just four hours’ flight from Singapore!
