Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory Family Getaways

Family Holiday Destinations in the Northern Territory and Australian Capital Territory

From tropical, lush greenery to red parched desert. Australia's Northern Territory has many landscapes, and plenty of them family-friendly. Head to the Outback and spend some time in indigenous communities learning how to live off the land, make bush tucker and paint with ochre. 

Spot wildlife in its natural habitat, from bilbies to wallabies, emus and even reptiles, and get up close and personal with some of the NT's killer predators, crocodiles! Float along the jaw-dropping Katherine Gorge, or browse the Mindil beach sunset markets.

It's not just Parliament House in Canberra. The National Portrait Gallery is worth a visit if the family is into the creative, as well as the AIS (Australian Institute of Sport) for the athletic. Nature reserves are abundant in Australia's Capital Territory, so explore waterfalls, lookouts and rivers galore.
