Equivalent in size to France, Italy and Spain combined, it's not surprising the Northern Territory is blessed with an abundance of natural environments. There is no greater haven than the Northern Territory for those looking to make a connection with nature.
This is an environment that ebbs and flows with the seasons, of contrast and colour, where change is the only constant. Of awe-inspiring iconic wonders - the World Heritage National Parks of Kakadu and Uluru-Kata Tjuta (Ayers Rock and the Olgas). Of flora and fauna as diverse as desert blooms are to lotus lilies and the fearsome saltwater crocodile is to the Brolga, the elegant dancing bird that is their emblem.
The indigenous culture, the Aboriginal people, hold a deeply spiritual connection to the land that dates back tens of thousands of years, yet their culture can still be shared in the present day - through a walk in the desert in search of bush tucker, a visit to the ancient rock art galleries, or simply sitting in on a story telling session.
The Northern Territory is renowned for its colourful characters. The type you'd meet at one of the legendary outback pubs, cattle stations or country towns. Uncomplicated, larger than life, and only too willing to share a yarn or two. It's hard not to fall in love with the down to earth attitude.

First experience with A&K. Intended to ask various travel companies for quotes but Vicky (Hamlin) was so good with her suggestions that we did not seek alternative quotations the suggested itinerary was excellent and helped us decide on a balanced and interesting holiday.
