The Natural North — Australia’s Top End

Continuing our traverse of Australia’s Northern Territory brings us to a conglomeration of uniquely diverse National Parks which feature breathtaking baobab (boab) trees, fantastical rock formations, magnetic termite mounds, gorgeous gorges, waterfalls and waterholes, and wild, wet and wonderful wetlands.  We explore four of these National Parks situated in Australia’s “Top End” – Keep River, Litchfield, Nitmiluk and World Heritage listed Kakadu.

Rising like a castle’s turrets, fantastical rock formations adorn Keep River N.P., which lies on the Northern Territory’s border with Western Australia.  Sandstone formations abound in every direction which are thrown into relief by the beauty of breathtaking boab trees rising above the woodlands.  Heading east on the Victoria Highway brings us to Nitmiluk N.P., home to a sensational gorge, escarpments and waterfalls.  It is a heavenly place for a serene float or paddle down the Katherine River with sheer walls providing a regal backdrop.  Further north from Katherine on the way to the city of Darwin lies the remarkable Litchfield N.P. where gigantic and magnetic termite mounds will leave you speechless.  Just on the other side of the Stuart Highway from Litchfield lies the incomparable wonder of Kakadu N.P., listed on the World Heritage register for both its remarkable natural ecosystems, and also is tremendous cultural significance to the Aboriginal inhabitants of the land.
