This World Heritage-listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is the epicenter of Aussie nature, wildlife and indigenous culture. It is about as central as The Outback gets so we guarantee you’ll be underway to one of the best desert experiences you can get around the world hands down.
These tours aren’t for those that want to sit an relax all day. This area of Australia is for the true adventurer and can handle a few sun blisters. Soon enough you’ll be gracing the red desert sands and eucalyptus trees of Uluru and Watarrka National Parks while discovering other worldly landscapes. So we urge you to prepare for an experience of a lifetime as you dive deep into the desert for a life changing journey discovering new aspects of beauty that you can’t get anywhere else.

Yes and it’s easy to do it yourself. There are plenty of different options to handle the Northern Territory’s terrain. You will be able to find many locally run businesses with expert experience in the region renting out anything from 4WDs, campervans, motorhomes, and minibuses.
The NT has two distinct climate zones: the tropical Top End and arid Red Centre. From May to October is the dry season, which tends to be warmer with sunny days and cooler nights. November to April is the wet season which brings large amounts of thunderstorms and very hot weather.
Though the NT is quite big, you can see most of the popular spots within three days. But we recommend to explore the full region which will take about 14 days.
Any body of water in the Top End of the NT can contain large and potentially dangerous saltwater crocodiles. You should never take any unnecessary risks in an environment that crocodiles inhabit. We recommend to always observe crocodile safety signs and assume they are nearby.
Whether you’re travelling domestically or internationally, there are various ways you can get here, whether it be by air, road, rail, or sea. There are airports located in Darwin in the north, and also at Alice Springs and Uluru.
You can also travel on the well-maintained, sealed highways, which provide direct routes from cities in South Australia, Queensland, and WA. You can also visit via The Ghan, one of the world’s great train journeys. This guy connects Adelaide and Darwin, stopping at various locations along the way.
