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 lifestyle, the Top End offers a huge variety of landscapes and experiences to visitors and locals alike, from waterfalls, wetlands and dramatic gorge systems to world class fishing, hiking and a strong surviving indigenous heritage and culture. Apart from Australia’s largest terrestrial national park, Kakadu, Top End Tours commonly include a visit to Litchfield and Katherine Gorge (Nitmiluk). Some programs also include visiting Arnhem Land. Each of our popular 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. There is much more to Litchfield than most day visitors see, and our longer programs allow us to penetrate the more secluded areas of the park.
Katherine Gorge is another uniquely stunning attraction of the Top End, displaying a deep, dramatic gorge system that can be explored by watercraft or air. Comprising of 13 gorges in total, the first three gorges of the system are accessible to the visitor via a canoeing expedition or a guided boat cruise. Scenic helicopter flights can cover the full length of the gorge complex.
