Ever wondered how a young horse is broken-in or how working dogs are trained to muster cattle? Prepare to be captivated as 2x Golden Guitar winner and horseman extraordinaire, Tom Curtain, provides real life horse-starting and dog training demonstrations, highlighting life on the land on outback Australian cattle stations. Without giving too much away, this 90 minute show is truly an authentic and hands-on experience complete with trick horses, buffalo, goats, brahman cattle and other station characters, entwined with outlandish station tales and boundless bush humour. The show is in a constant state of evolution, with new acts and new animals. It is an experience not to be missed! BOOKINGS ARE ESSENTIAL! NT Season is 1 APRIL 2018 to 31 OCTOBER 2018. Shows: Monday, Thursday and Friday 4:30-6:00pm | Tuesday 9:30am | Wednesday 2:30pm | Selected Saturdays 4:30-6:00pm.
We visited as part of a tour group, as a side trip from our "Ghan" rail trip from Adelaide to Darwin.
The show that you guys gave us was wonderful and very informative. I personally learned a lot about horses that I never knew even though I had been in an environment of horses as a teenager. I have no hesitation in recommending your outback experience to all. Even "townies" should enjoy it.

The Royal Flying Doctor Service Darwin Tourist Facility is a new and exciting development on the Stokes Hill Wharf that bring to life two iconic Australian stories. The first iconic story is the Royal Flying Doctor Service, affectionately known throughout Australia as the RFDS. Founded by the Reverend John Flynn, it began its aero medical operations in the Northern Territory in 1939. The second iconic story featured is the Bombing of Darwin Harbour on 19th February 1942. The bombing of the harbour brought destruction to the city of Darwin, and many of the experiences and stories of what happened that day through the most modern and exciting technology.
Don't miss this top quality historical tourism experience. For one admission price you get two great themes. Bombing of Darwin and Royal Flying Doctors both with quality video and VR experiences. First class!Wow! What a great review, our team is very happy to hear that you enjoyed the heroic tales of the birth and growth of the RFDS and relived the drama of the Bombing of Darwin Harbour. Kind Regards Sam

This is a must. The climb to the top of the 'hill' is difficult but worth every step for the 360 degree views you have from the top. So few people there when I was there (October) made it extra special. The Aboriginal artwork on the rocks is a must. Allow 1-2 hours for this site.

Maguk Gorge was the highlight of our visit to the NT. The walk in is a fabulous tropical surround and the waterfall and pool are stunning. It was an absolute delight to swim in this pristine place.

Originally home to the Aboriginal Wagait people, this national park's major attractions are its monsoon rainforest, magnificent streams and Waterfalls, and historic ruins.
We visited Litchfield National Park on a day trip in the wet season. This had the advantage that we could enjoy the cascading Waterfalls at their very best. The disadvantage though was that it is too dangerous to swim in the pools that are great during the dry season. There were clear notices at all these sites that they are CLOSED for swimming. Some of the Lookouts were also almost inaccessible as parts of the pathways are becoming submerged, so it won't be long till the park rangers have to close them too. Although it poured with rain all day long, we were lucky to manage to see Florence Falls, Tolmer Falls and Buley Rockhole as well as the fascinating magnetic and Cathedral termite mounds.

Gunlom Waterfall Creek was undoubtedly the highlight of our week in the Northern Territory. Circumstances (relaxed day, ideal weather, small crowds) certainly helped but the scenery and the views of and from the creek are incredible. It has a true, natural 'infinity pool' looking out the gorge toward the range. The road in from the highway is not great but well worth it.

When we visited in April 2017 there was an abundance of water coming over the falls. The pool was closed to swimming which was a pity and some of the walk ways were inaccessible. This did nothing to spoil our visit though, as we knew the amount of water coming over the falls was a rare site indeed.

During the Second World War, Adelaide River was the headquarters of a large base and the Adelaide River War Cemetery was created for the burial of servicemen and women who died in this part of Australia during that war. After the war, the Army Graves Service moved graves from civil Cemeteries, isolated sites and temporary military burial grounds, into the current cemetery sight. Hence why you see both civilian and servicemen and women here. It is a well maintained area which is lovely to walk around and have time for reflection.

A deep gorge carved through ancient sandstone by the Katherine River draws thousands of visitors to the Jawoyn-owned Nitmiluk National Park each year. Distinctive dissected sandstone country features above the gorge, lush rainforest gullies inhabit giant cracks in the gorge walls, and broad Valleys meander through both the high and the low country. Enjoy a boat tour, helicopter flight, various walks, camping and canoeing. Leliyn (Edith Falls) is also a great attraction within the Park.
We went on a two gorge trip because of the water level. I think there are 13 gorges here. The boat captain was a great guide and told us about the lot of the local and cultural history. Best was he took us to a fresh water waterfall/pool in the second gorge which was divine. We soaked there for about 45 mts.

The Nourlangie Area features stunning rock art galleries and impressive views from Gunwarddehwardde lookout of Kakadu's escarpment and Nourlangie Rock.During the dry season you can learn more about the park's ancient heritage from ranger talks at the galleries, or enjoy a walk and relaxing picnic at Anbangbang Billabong.
This area is one of Kakadu’s oldest Aboriginal occupation sites open to the public, we encounter a few other people, but otherwise the place is our own. The art is well worth seeing.
