Darwin - the ‘Top End’ of Australia
Alice Springs - ‘The Heart’ of Australia

Darwin Click through for flora emblem of Northern Territory...AusEmade is the starting point for Darwin and the Top End down to Alice Springs and Uluru in Central Australia. Your online travel guide for all your getaway and holiday vacation tourism information, including accommodation, attractions, tours and charters, events, Indigenous Culture, car hire, aussie outback activities and much more.

Well we are now in the cooler season of autumn and heading into winter. Yet now is one of the most popular times to visit the 'Red Centre', with our vivid blue sky and glorious sunny days. Whilst the spring wildflower season may be a memory, you can still enjoy the unique flora at places such as Olive Pink Botanic Garden and Alice Springs Desert Park, or visit some of the permanent waterholes dotted along the ranges.

When planning your Central Australian holiday check out the events calendar, as it is always packed with exciting annual events and programs. Your travel here may coincides with one of our popular events, adding that special touch. If you are planning to travel here to enjoy and participate in one of our events, make sure you book your accommodation ahead of time, as they are often booked out for events such as Desert Mob, Beanie Festival and the Finke Desert Race.

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

One of the NT's iconic events is a boat race in the desert. For those who missed the biggest boat race in Central Australia, we have glorious photos of the 2011 Henley-on-Todd, and you can still check out the photos for both the 2010 and 2009 events, or visit the  Henley on Todd Regatta web site. Pencil in your calendar for the 17 August, 2013 big event.

For those who have not visited the Northern Territory, make it this year to visit some of our popular destinations that include the iconic natural wonders of the heritage listed Kakadu National Park, encompassing the majestic rainforest of the tropical far north, through to the desert red sands of the arid centre with its monolith rocks of Uluru (formerly Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta (formerly the Olgas) and Mount Connor. Stretching east and west from Alice Springs is the MacDonnell Ranges, a special place not only to the local indigenous people, but to those of us who choose to live here.

A vacation to the Northern Territory will help you retain that feeling of having been somewhere special. For those who have not made the time to visit, find out why so many people keep coming back. Now is the time to start planning that memorable holiday, with the NT offering many outback adventure and wonderful getaway destinations. It is the perfect place to refresh the body, revitalise the mind and to share the experience with family and friends.

Those planning to visit the northern end of the NT that includes Darwin and Kakadu should be aware that there are two distinct seasons, referred to as ‘the wet’ and ‘the dry’. The wet season occurs approximately from November to March, whilst the dry occurs from April to November.

Central Australia has four recognisable seasons: spring (September to November), summer (December to February), autumn (March to May), and winter (June to August).

For those seeking to experience Aboriginal art and culture, there are many tour opportunities and experiences, as well as a plethora of galleries and cultural centres to whet your appetite.

Other major natural attractions besides Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kakadu National Park, include Kings Canyon (in Watarrka National Park), Palm Valley (home to the Red Cabbage Palm, the remnants of a tropical rainforest that covered the area 60 million years ago) and Alice Springs, considered the heart of the vast Central Australia region.

Alice Springs is also a popular base from which to visit the numerous nearby attractions, with the East MacDonnell and West MacDonnell Range stretching some 644 km either side of the Alice, encompassing numerous gorges and waterholes, as well as the world famous ‘Larapinta Trail’.

Heading further north is the UFO centre of Australia, Wycliffe Well, Tennant Creek, Mataranka, Katherine and Arnhem Land, just to name a few

Comprising one-sixth of Australia, with over 50 percent of the Territory classed as Aboriginal land, come and enjoy the experience as the Aboriginal people share with you their arts and culture, opening their door onto the wonders of an ancient landscape that contains woodlands, tropical rainforests, deserts and semi-arid plains.

Getting to the Top End and Central Australia is quite easy, with either domestic or international airlines. You can also enjoy the Territory by booking on a air tour and charter. Helicopter rides at various locations provide a unique perspective over the landscape.

Visitors to the ‘Top End’ will find a huge range of places to stay including luxury resorts, bed and breakfast, motels, hotels, self-contained, budget hostels, camping and caravan. For those travelling with their pets, there are a growing number of pet friendly accommodation on offer.
