Explore Australia’s Top End
The northernmost part of Australia’s Northern Territory is commonly referred to as the ‘Top End’. Renowned for its tropical lifestyles and environments, the Top End offers a huge variety of landscapes and experiences to visitors and locals alike. From waterfalls, wetlands, savannahs, and dramatic sandstone plateaus with deep gorge systems and towering escarpments; this incredibly diverse landscape continues to support what is thought to be the oldest surviving indigenous culture on our planet. Aside from being Australia’s largest terrestrial National Park, Kakadu is regarded as one of our most important World Heritage sites for the protection of its outstanding natural and cultural values. Our Top End Tours also include two of the Northern Territories most popular National parks; Litchfield and Katherine Gorge (Nitmiluk). Each of these parks is very different and an attraction in their own right, however, the best way to experience the Top End is on a continuous 4WD experience incorporating the best our northern paradise has to offer.
Litchfield measures around 1,300 square Kilometres, and we refer to it as our aquatic playground. Comprising of great waterfalls and rock pools reached by shorter walks, the park offers a safe, fun swimming environment.
Katherine Gorge is another uniquely stunning attraction of the Top End, displaying a deep, dramatic gorge system that can be explored by watercraft and viewed from a chopper. Comprising of 13 gorges in total, the first four gorges of the system are accessible to the visitor via a canoeing expedition or a guided boat cruise. Scenic helicopter flights can cover the entire length of the gorge complex.
