Queenstown is a great place to visit. 


Northern Territory Top End Travel Agent Expert

Experiences across the Red Centre and the Top End will satisfy all tastes and budgets from adventure to luxury to relaxation and culture. With so many places to visit and things to see, it’s good to plan ahead and be prepared to make the most of your time in this spectacular part of the world.


 


ULURU AND KATA TJUTA:The ancient rock formations of Uluru and Kata Tjuta rise from the land to make an incredible sight. Immerse yourself in the Aboriginal stories of this special place, 500 million years in the making. n Australia’s Red Centre lies the spectacular Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Home to many ancient wonders, the park is most famous for the enormous monoliths it’s named after. Uluru and Kata Tjuta rise from the earth in all their red glory just 30 kilometres (18.6 miles) from each other. Measuring 348 metres (1140 feet) high and 9.4 kilometres (5.8 miles) in circumference, Uluru is the largest sandstone monolith in the world, while Kata Tjuta is made up of 36 giant domes spread over more than 20 kilometres (12.4 miles). Both sites remain deeply spiritual and sacred to the local Anangu people, who have lived here for more 22,000 years. 


DARWIN: If balmy nights, colourful characters and outdoor adventures are on your bucket list, you'll want to visit Darwin, located in the Northern Territory. Along with its crocodiles and cruises, you'll find rich Aboriginal cultures here, evident through the vibrant Aboriginal art that fills the city's galleries, museums and streetscapes. The city's proximity to Asia means you'll also find strong Asian influences, especially in the energetic food scene and buzzing night markets.


LITCHFIELD NATIONAL PARK: In Litchfield National Park, the opportunities for adventure are endless. ust a two-hour drive from Darwin, Litchfield is pure fun. Whether you marvel at a waterfall from a helicopter or lay back in a swimming hole, you’ll never get bored on a trip to this stunning national park.


KAKADU NATIONAL PARK: Experience the magic of World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park on an outback adventure that defies expectation. In Australia's biggest national park you'll find rugged escarpments, lush rainforest and rock art galleries up to 20,000 years old. Learn about Aboriginal culture from traditional owners, the Bininj/Mungguy people, take in thundering waterfalls and witness millions of migratory birds among the wetlands. Experience Kakadu's magic in six dramatically different seasons.


ARNHEM LAND: Bordered by Kakadu National Park, the Arafura Sea and the Gulf of Carpentaria, Arnhem Land is a vast, unspoiled wilderness area of more than 97,000 square kilometres. Arnhem Land is wild, spiritual and diverse, with rugged coastlines, remote islands, lush rainforest's, towering escarpments and savanna woodlands. A trip here will ignite your curiosity as you get to know the Traditional Custodians of Arnhem Land.

An extraordinary travel planner
I am a travel agent partner who has worked with Dawn many times. Each itinerary was unique and intricate. Dawn is a one in a million travel partner. She is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and patient. She puts her all into travel planning. She is an excellent listener, enabling the agent and the clients to be completely confident in putting their trip in Dawn's capable hands. She leaves no stone unturned. My most challenging and discriminating clients were always wowed by her talent in planning travel. And Dawn was always willing to spend time conferencing with me and clients in order to really understand their wishes. Call Dawn for sure!
