Northern Territory travel guide

Geologic Formations · Specialty Museums · Nature & Parks
A largely unpopulated, parched land of deep red desert, spectacular rock formations, and small, isolated settlements, Northern Territory has perhaps the most distinctively Australian aesthetic of all the country’s states. The region’s towns and cities are clustered around the Stuart Highway--the iconic road that serves as Northern Territory’s main artery--rather than the coastline, as is normally the case in Australia.
