Kakadu National Park is by far Australia's most famous national park, both nationally and internationally. It is also one of northern Australia's most visited places, attracting over 250,000 people annually from all over the world. What they come to see is Kakadu’s dramatic landscape, its Aboriginal cultural sites and its diverse and abundant wildlife.

There are many beautiful waterfalls and gorges within the Park that are popular with visitors such as Maguk, Gunlom, Twin Falls and Jim Jim Falls.

Uluru and Kata Tjuta

Uluru, also referred to as Ayers Rock, is an iconic sandstone rock formation and one of Australia's most recognisable natural icons. The world-renowned sandstone formation stands 348 m high (863 m above sea level) with most of its bulk below the ground, and measures 9.4 km in circumference in is located the southern part of the Northern Territory. The rock lies 335 km south west of the nearest large town, Alice Springs; 450 km by road. Uluru is listed as a World Heritage Site.

The West MacDonnells

If you think there's nothing to see in the Red Centre of Australia apart from Ululu, Alice Springs and lots of red desert, then you don't know about the MacDonnell Ranges. Stretching for 400km from east-west in a series of parallel ranges, the East and West MacDonnell Ranges straddle the town of Alice Springs, which sits alongside a gap between them. The long term erosive work of streams in the ranges has created a magnificent series of dramatic gaps and gorges which are easy to access from Alice Springs and are truly a photographer's delight.

Sunset on Mindil Beach

Mindil Beach on Fannie Bay is Darwin's most popular spot for ocean swimming, but in the evenings the sands of Mindil Beach transorm into a grandstand to view the magical sunsets of the Top End. During the Dry Season (May until October) Mindil Beach hosts one of Australia's most renown markets, where a variety of wares, entertainments, and foods from a wide variety of cultures are served. Having purchased their dinner at the markets, patrons retire to the beach where they the sun go down as they enjoy their dinner.

Jumping Crocodiles

A cruise on the Adelaide River Queen offers a rare opportunity to see these giant creatures up close in their natural environment from the safety of a cruise vessel. The crocs leap high out of the water to take morsels of food offered to them by the cruise operators, presenting magnificent photo opportunities. Location: Arnhem Highway, Humpty Doo, NT

Cruise The Kimberley Coast

The region known simply as The Kimberley takes its evocative name from its most imposing landmark; an ancient mountain range visible from the rugged sea coast. Though the majority of Australian don't even know it exists, of those who do, few have seen it as it is in one of most remote corners of the country.

Its coastline is nothing short of stunning and according to all who have seen it, there is no other stretch of coastline in Australia that comes near in terms of its ability to inspire awe and wonder.
