Zoos in Katherine

Ahhh…the infamous Aussie Outback. A dry, baron and dangerous place where you can drive for days, still be in NT and see nothing? Nope, nope and nope! (Well, you can actually drive for days and still be in NT, that bit’s true)

Northern Territories is the spiritual capital of the country. It’s the state of the dreamtime. It’s the state of unparalleled natural beauty, and an incredibly eye opening experience for kids.

We can’t start without mentioned Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park. In other words, Ayers Rock! That iconic image of Australia. That’s just the beginning. Earth Sanctuary World Nature Centre, Howard Springs Nature Park, Katherine Hot Springs Reserve…all places that embrace the natural wonders of NT.

Wildlife a plenty with the Alice Springs Reptile Centre, and Crocodylus Park, unique experiences to be had with Outback Ballooning and Darwin Harbour Cruises, and of course for the heat, indoor activities such as Cutta Cutta Caves Nature Park.

From the cities to the Outback, NT will be an incredible experience for the whole family, and is like nowhere else on earth!

Not only do you see wildlife up-close in their natural habitats, you meet them walking through tree top aviaries, strolling around a natural lagoon and even get to interact with them during daily presentations.
