Covering nearly 20,000 square kilometres (7,722 square miles), this biodiverse nature reserve is of great environmental and cultural significance to Australia. It plays host to a massive array of plant and wildlife species, as well as two of Australia’s most important Aboriginal rock art sites, Ubirr and Nourlangie.

You can come face-to-face with deadly saltwater crocodiles when you enter the notorious Cage of Death at Crocosaurus Cove, the ultimate urban wildlife experience, and calm your nerves with a relaxing stroll through the lush tropical gardens, coastal dunes and mangroves of the George Brown Botanic Gardens.

For a broad overview of the area’s Indigenous art and history, you can visit the Museum and Gallery of the Northern Territory, before touring the Tiwi Islands to see the artists at work on new pieces you can buy directly from them.
