Things to do in and around regional Northern Territory
Vast, rugged and wild, the Northern Territory is an adventurer’s paradise. Covering more than 1.3 million square kilometres, the Northern Territory is one of the largest of Australia’s states and territories – but the least populated, with only 233,300 people calling it home. Immense and sparsely populated, NT has much to discover and explore.
The Northern Territory is a delight for nature enthusiasts, with more than 400 species of birds, 300 reptiles, 50 frogs, 150 mammals, and several hundred species of fish all calling NT home. Visitors can get close to nature by visiting one of the many stunning National Parks and Nature Reserves, or by taking a tour.
There is an abundance of cruises and tours around NT, allowing visitors to meet the local crocodiles, do a spot of barramundi fishing, or explore the Red Centre and Top End by 4WD. Visitors can ride a camel across the desert, or fly across it in a hot air balloon. They can also learn more about the Northern Territory’s important cultural ties and its past.
While big cities are generally more popular for business events and conferences, Regional NT certainly has a lot to offer. AccorHotels has several excellent hotels offering conference facilities in Regional NT, making it the ideal destination for business trips that require meeting rooms, for functions and events, and for team building and incentives.
