    Aboriginal Culture Tours

    Exploring the rich cultural diversity of the Northern Territory Aboriginal nations makes for an intriguing stay. Aboriginals have lived in the Northern Territory for many thousands of years, evidence has been found indicating they have been here for over fifty to sixty thousand years, if not longer.

    Aboriginal lands, including Arnhem Land cover almost fifty percent of the state and are controlled under arrangements with them and the Federal government. Permits are usually required to enter these lands, better yet, go with experienced Aboriginal guides on one or more of the many tours and cruises.

    Places like Darwin and Alice Springs have a number of Aboriginal culture tours available, where you can learn about the food, the arts and way of life in the Outback from the indigenous perspective. These tours and sometimes cruises, can give you an added appreciation of this ancient land in places that is inaccessible to normal visitors to the NT.

    Bathurst and Melville Islands

    Bathurst and Melville Islands, off the north coast of Australia near Darwin, has indigenous culture that differs from the mainland. Melville is the second largest island off the coast of Australia, after Tasmania.

    The islands are very much a tropical paradise, due to restrictions placed by the traditional owners of these islands, the Tiwi peoples, visitors are only allowed to Bathurst Island and only during the months of May to October.

    The Red Centre

    The huge desert areas, located in the centre and south of the NT has scenery dating back more than 800 million years and called the Red Centre. The red sand and soils get their colour from the rusting iron oxides.

    Alice Springs is the main city in this vast region, from here you can explore the deserts and the other notable places to visit, including Uluru and the Olgas, the Devil’s Marbles and the Henbury Meteorites Conservation Reserve. See more about Alice Springs and the Red Centre:
