Take an exciting tour to Kakadu or Arnhem Land and discover the rich heritage of Aboriginal culture amongst breathtaking coastal views and rock formations. These world-heritage sites are best explored by tour, where guides can offer great insight into the locations and their historical and culture significance. For a unique explore, opt for a bush tucker walk or safari style tour. Another tourist highlight is a cruise along East Alligator River where you will have the chance to view the Northern Territory's diverse wildlife.
The Northern Territory is famous for barramundi fishing particularly during the dry season along the harbour. Hire a boat on the harbour or join a fishing charter and try your hand at fishing Northern Territory style.
If fishing isn't your thing, enjoy a leisurely walk along the scenic Myilly Point Heritage Precinct that overlooks the ocean.
