Welcome to Darwin, the capital city of the Northern Territory, where crocodiles rule the land and beer is more readily available than water! Check out some friendly Darwin locals - Crocodiles, wallabies, goannas and pelicans all live in their natural habitats at the Darwin Wildlife Park; or hop aboard a fishing charter and attempt to catch the elusive Barramundi.

Darwin only has two seasons – the wet season and the dry season. With Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks only a half-day drive away, Darwin is the perfect spot to start your great Australian roadtrip. Uluru is just “down the road” (as most Aussies would say) – an easy 2000km in your Darwin cheap campervan down the highway.

The Northern Territory is one of the most vibrant and exciting states in Australia. Consisting of 1.35 million square kilometres, its vast open spaces make up one sixth of the Australian continent. The Northern Territory can be divided into two distinct regions – the Top End and the Centre. Getting around this rugged playground is best on your campervan rental, where you will not miss a single landmark scheduled on your travel plan.

The Top End consists of the Territory’s capital, Darwin, and surrounding landscapes. Kakadu National Park offers a wide variety of flora and fauna, many Aboriginal paintings, and vast panoramas, escarpments and waterfalls. The Pine Creek region is noted for its historic buildings and museums, while the vast cattle surrounding Katherine offers nearby Katherine Gorge, the Cutta Cutta Caves and the Springvale Homestead as major attractions. The Wauchope region is noted for the colourful Murchison and Davenport Ranges and for the spectacular rock formations known as Devils Marbles.

The Centre combines the vigour of frontier life with the convenience of modern facilities at Alice Springs. The surrounding area is dotted with numerous scenic attractions ranging from the famous Ayers Rocks and the Olgas to the spectacular and colourful landforms of Finke Gorge, Ormiston Gorge, Simpsons Gap and Standley Chasm. Be sure to visit them all on your campervan trip.

Discovering the scenic delights of the Northern Territory on our campervan will remain permanently etched in your memory, with each centre location offering many recreational activities. So, plan your campervan holiday with us and have a festive self-drive adventure in the Northern Territory. Hiring a Darwin campervan is also recommended so you don’t miss out on seeing many stunning waterfalls and gorges that are off the beaten track.
