The Northern Territory is a federal territory of Australia and is located between Western Australia, South Australia and Queensland. Its borders form a tidy rectangle in the centre of the top half of Australia, and this unique location has earned the various regions of the Northern Territory nicknames such as the Top End and the Red Centre.
Darwin is the largest city in the Top End of the Northern Territory, as well as the territory’s capital city. Lush valleys topped off by gushing waterfalls make this area a great place for exploring Australia’s wilderness. Backpackers love travelling to Darwin and the Top End as it is filled with natural wonders but also picturesque beaches and lively nightclubs. Another popular attraction with young travellers is the Deckchair Cinema, an outdoor movie theatre with deckchairs as seats. Darwin’s popularity with backpackers means heaps of choices for cheap accommodation. The cheapest would be backpacker hostels such as the YMCA of Darwin, which starts at $25/night. For more luxurious hotels, try the Crowne Plaza Darwin, which is in walking distance of shops, restaurants and bars.

Various tours are available to explore the Red Centre, including an exotic tour on top of a camel’s back.
Alice Springs is the main city in this area and is the gateway to all the attractions of the Red Centre.
