Northern Territory Transportation

  • Australian Road Trains

    Road trains are a common sight on the Stuart Highway. A road train consists of a relatively conventional tractor unit, but instead of pulling one trailer or semi-trailer, a road train pulls two or more of them. Road trains really make sense given the long distances in Northern Territory. Although road trains look the same as tractor-trailors from...

  • Darwin International Airport (DRW)

    Darwin International Airport (DRW) is probably the smallest of Australia's International Airports. It is however a nice little place for a layover believe it or not.I prefer to fly with oneWorld Carriers (AA, British Airways, Qantas, Cathay), so I had the privledge of checking out the Qantas Club lounge while waiting for a 1am! flight back to...

  • Road Conditions in Northern Territory

    The government of the Northern Territory offers information on road conditions and road work in progress on a well updated but simple webpage. Have a look onto this site before planning your trip around NT.

  • Bus Tours by AAT-Kings

    I used " AAT-Kings", a Bus-Company doing daily tours from Uluru to A.Springs to many other destinations in N.Territory. It was easy and comfortable, booking via Internet/Mail no problem.Have a look at Luck!

  • Dont speed when driving!

    When driving around central australia,even when the road is long and straight with hardly any traffic out in the middle of nowhere.........dont speed!One... it is dangerous and Two... the police are still out there....i know,i was caught!

  • Yulara Domestic Airport - Uluru (AYQ)

    Most travel purists would probably tell me that I am taking the easy way out flying directly to this landmark, but what the heck.... I turned a 6 day boring excursion through the middle of the desert to a 6 hour round trip on a plane!Yulara Airport is located just miles away from Uluru, and offers the flexibility of enjoying a view of Uluru from...


    Just to let you know, expect wear and tear, we destroyed a car in NT, and had to get rid of it when we reached WA (thats a whole other story!). The fuel prices rocket in the outback townships, Hellsgate Roadhouse especially is 3 times the price of the city. And if you get a flat, you have to pay whatever they charge you. Just be careful, the...

  • 5 Day Camping Tours in the Red Centre

    Most people fly into Alice Springs, and do a quick trip out to Ayers Rock and the Olgas. I recommend one of the 5 day camping tours that will also visit Kings Canyon, Palm Valley, Finke Gorge and Ormiston Gorge.I travelled with Sahara Tours, it was a small group of 12, in a small bus. We spent most of our time off the beaten track and away from all...

  • If it's not off the beaten track, what...

    The train service from Adelaide (South Australia) to Darwin (Northern territory) runs daily and stops only occasionally on its 3000km trip north (or south).One of those stops is Alice Springs.We say that "The Alice" is the "dead centre" of Australia - partly because it's really in the "centre" of Australia and also because, if you disregard the...

  • We took the Ghan to Alice...

    We took the Ghan to Alice Springs from Adelaide. We really lucked out as the man who made our reservations stuffed up our tickets and later when it was learned it was full, they gave us first class at a much reduced price.
