Top End

Monsoonal rainforests, semi-arid landscapes and incredible, remote destinations

Australia’s Top End is a cultural adventurer’s delight​

The Top End of Australia is a vast area, with much of the land being remote and inaccessible. However, what is accessible is filled with jagged peaks of towering escarpments, national parks filled with beautifully clear pools fringed with cycads, pandanus and paperbarks trees, plentiful animals and a deeply rich culture underlying life in the Top End.

Adventure and culture are the key experiences to be discovered in the Top End, from partaking in a multi-day adventure exploring some of the most remote locations in the Top End, to lazing by a plunge pool surrounded by buffalos, wallaby’s and all manner of wildlife in a Safari-style camp.

Discover the beautiful histories and eloquently spoken dreaming stories told by the local indigenous peoples of Australia and understand how their culture and influence helped to shape the land.

  • Discover the beauty and unkempt wilderness of the Arnhem Land, Kakadu and Litchfield national parks with incredible, knowledgeable and very personable guides.
  • Learn about the ancient history of the Top End, visiting sacred destinations and learning histories with the local indigenous peoples of Australia.
  • Visit a working cattle station or relax in a plunge pool surrounded by animals in a Safari-style camp.

The Top End region of Australia experiences two distinct seasons of weather.

From May to October the Dry Season is in effect. This is where warm, sunny days are abundant and the weather is perfect. Average daily temperatures sit between 21.6 – 31.8°C (70.9 – 89.2°F).

From November to April is when the Wet Season takes over. Monsoonal rain create an incredibly vibrant and lush landscape, with the daily temperature averaging from 24.7 – 32 °C (76.5 – 89.6°F). Tropical cyclones and high humidity are common in the region during this time.

What do our experts say about Top End?

"I love the Top End, with its multi-cultural city of Darwin, World Heritage Kakadu National Park, Arnhem Land and the beautiful, ancient Aboriginal culture living strong today."
