Entdecken Sie das Northern Territory auf eigene Faust

- Stop Guessing. Start Doing.


Holiday Here This Year

Die verbrannte rote Erde des Outbacks, die magische Anziehungskraft des Kakadu und des Ulura Nationalparks und die mystische Kultur der australischen Ureinwohner machen das Northern Territory zu einem einzigartigen Reiseziel. Hier finden Sie das echte Australien in all seiner rauen, ursprünglichen Erhabenheit.

Die Geschichte des Territoriums erschließt sich mithilfe der sechs wichtigsten Zielpunkte, vom tropischen Darwin, Kakadu und Katherine über die gelben Ebenen von Tennant Creek bis hin zu den Wüstenlandschaften von Alice Springs und Uluru (Ayers Rock). Jeder Zielort besitzt seinen ganz eigenen Charme und bietet eine unglaubliche Vielfalt an Erfahrungen, Menschen, Orten und geschichtlichen Ereignissen, die es zu entdecken gilt. Obwohl das NT ca. ein Sechstel der gesamten australischen Landmasse ausmacht, leben hier nur gut 200.000 Einwohner.

Es gibt hier zwei sehr unterschiedliche Klimazonen. Im Norden beginnt das Jahr mit warmen tropischen Regenfällen; daran schließen sich warme, sonnige Tage und kühle Nächte an. In den zentralen Regionen herrscht ein halbtrockenes Klima mit den für Australien typischen vier Jahreszeiten vor.

Wenn Sie selbst auf Tour gehen, können Sie die ausgetretenen Pfade verlassen und die Vielschichtigkeit des NT auf eigene Faust entdecken. Sehen Sie sich Hamishs Folge von Caravan of Courage über seine Reise durch das NT sowie die neuesten Fotos des NT auf Australia-Instagram an und informieren Sie sich über die vorgeschlagenen Fahrtrouten.  

Lassen Sie sich inspirieren und starten Sie Ihr Abenteuer hier.

Quick Facts


The population of the Northern Territory is around 250,000. Darwin: 150,000, Alice Springs, 30,000.


The Northern Territory has two very distinctive climate zones. The northern region starts the year with warm, tropical rain then moves to warm and sunny days and cool nights mid-year. The end of the year is pre-monsoonal season, which produces amazing lightning storms.

Central Australia is semi-arid and experiences Australia’s four typical seasons: summer, autumn, winter and spring. The monsoon rains do not extend this far south so the weather is quite different to the Top End in that there is no tropical rainy season.

Cultural Mix

About one quarter of the Territory's multicultural population is Aboriginal. Darwin is considered Australia’s most culturally diverse city with more than 50 nationalities making up its population.

Famous For

World Heritage listed national parks Kakadu and Uluru-Kata Tjuta, an Aboriginal culture that’s thought to be 50,000 years old, diverse flora and fauna - from the lotus lily to the saltwater crocodile, barramundi fishing, amazing sunsets and tropical lightning displays in the northern region, outback beauty and adventure in Central Australia.


Darwin has an international airport and there are domestic airports at Alice Springs, Uluru/Ayers Rock, Katherine and Tennant Creek. The Ghan train links Darwin with Adelaide and stops at Alice Springs and Katherine en route. Darwin is a major cruise port destination. The main towns also offer most transport options: taxis, buses, private hire cars, limousines, light plane charters and coaches and visitors can hire a car in the main towns.

Travel Tips

Road trains are prevalent on Territory roads - huge trucks that can be the length of 10 cars. Allow at least one kilometre of clear road ahead before overtaking, taking care not to veer off the road.

Stock and wildlife - Many sealed and unsealed roads in the Northern Territory are unfenced, so beware of stock and wildlife. These can include birds, cattle, kangaroos and camels. Wildlife is most active early in the morning and late at night, so driving during these times should be avoided.

Floods – in the Territory’s northern regions, flooding is common at certain times of year. Do not attempt to cross flooded bridges or causeways unless absolutely sure of the depth and any road damage.

Safe Swimming - Swimming in Territory beaches, billabongs and rivers is not recommended due to the presence of crocodiles and Box Jellyfish. This is generally sign-posted, but if you’re not sure, don’t swim.

Fatigue – The Territory is a big place, and driving long distances can cause fatigue - one of the most common causes of serious accidents. Stop and rest for 15 minutes at least every two hours when driving.

Weather – it can be very warm in the Territory and it’s important to drink plenty of water (at least eight glasses a day, more if active), wear a hat and sunscreen.

Speed limits – The default speed limit on open roads in the Northern Territory is 110km/hour, unless otherwise signposted, however travellers should drive at a speed that suits the road, vehicle, weather condition and their driving experience with a maximum of 110 km/h for any of our campervans.
