If you’re looking for adrenaline-pumping action, then there’s no better place to go than the Northern Territory. Up north, you will spend most of your time in the great outdoors, whether that’s the wetlands of Kakadu or the Red Centre.
Go on an adventure at the Northern Territory
The Northern Territory is the perfect holiday destination for anyone looking to add a bit of excitement into their lives. To give you a better idea of what you can do during this time, here are a few adventures you can try:
Hardcore anglers looking to catch the elusive barramundi come to the Northern Territory. The best spots are off the beaten track and can be accessed with helifishing to increase the chance of capturing the fish of their dreams.
The helicopter will take you to a remote fishing location where you can cast your line from a helicopter. But that’s not all they offer. You can also use this service to take a bird’s eye view tour of Litchfield National Park, Kakadu National Park or even Darwin.
Hot air balloon ride
Catching the sunrise by the beach is a remarkable experience. However, you get to experience the sunrise differently when you’re in the Northern Territory. Take a hot air balloon ride from Alice Springs and rise with the sun.
While you’re in the air, catch the view at MacDonnell Ranges and spot some red kangaroos. When you get back down on the ground, you will have a new-found appreciation for nature.
Ever wanted to drive a quad bike? You can finally tick that off your bucket list here in the Northern Territory. Visit Kings Creek Station where you can rent quad bikes for you and your buddies. Then take your time riding over dunes and spotting wildlife along the way.
You don’t need a license or any experience to try this adventure. Just make sure you put on your helmets and other protective gear before revving.
Nothing gets your blood pumping faster than falling 14,0000 ft with nothing but a parachute and a tandem partner to keep you company. There are several places around the Northern Territory where you can try this experience.
Places that offer this adventure are in Darwin, Katherine, and over the Uluru. It provides a great view along with bragging rights to your friends.
Swimming with crocs
The Northern Territory is teeming with all sorts of wildlife. Caution should be exercised whenever near any waterways as crocodiles are the ultimate apex predator. However, you can get up close and personal with them at the Cage of Death Crocosaurus Cove in Darwin. Swim with these crocodiles and see these dangerous creatures like never before.
Swimmers will be in a submerged glass enclosure, keeping them safe from the crocodiles, but still close enough to allow visitors to see every scale on the croc’s body.
Whatever adventure you choose, always follow the instructions and stay safe. Additionally, don’t leave your rubbish behind when it’s time to go back. Help preserve nature so that more people can enjoy it as much as you did.
Make your plans, book your flights to the Northern Territory and enjoy your time away from home. To make your trip more enjoyable and allow you to bring everything you need, reserve an airport car parking space at Brisbane Airport or the Gold Coast Airport. That way, you can drive yourself to the airport and have your ride waiting upon your return.
