Northern Territory's famous advertising slogan in the 1980s was "You will never never know, if you never never go".  How true that is. 

From the iconic Uluru (Ayers Rock) to Kakadu and everything in between, it is so very different to other parts of Australia and especially the eastern seaboard. 

Whether you fly, drive or arrive by train, the Northern Territory has something for everyone.  It's a land of timeless rugged beauty, red ochre, blue skies and grey/green from the scrub and trees.  Read these Trip Reports and be inspired to come and stay a while.

One visitor’s report on a self-drive trip to Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon over three nights and four days in April 2009.      


A visitor from Donnegal reviewed his visit to these parts, he wished he could have spent more than four days in this extraordinary part of Australia in 2008 and says he’ll be back to visit Kings Canyon and Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park again one of these days.    


KThree people take a four day self-drive trip Alice Springs to Uluru – “a truly amazing and inspiring experience”.


One of TA's regular contributors and her family spent a few days at Uluru before flying to Cairns , but not before enjoying the “Sounds of Silence” dinner   – “another never to be forgotten experience made very special by the location”.


A fabulous detailed Trip report by mlgAustralia on Uluru.
