Caravan Parks in Northern Territory

Australia

Whether you want to spend your holiday in a modern, tropical city or in quaint villages along the country, then you will find everything you need in the Northern Territory. With thousands of migrants both from the other five Australian states or overseas, it’s not surprising that the Northern Territory turned into the cultural melting pot that it is today. Nearly all of the Northern Territory’s population live in the state’s five regional centres. These regional centres also serve as services and supply bases for dozens of smaller communities in the region. Darwin and Palmerston are the most populated cities in the Northern Territory, while the Alice Springs and the rest of the Central Region comes in at a close second. The rest of the state population reside in Barkly Region, which includes Tennant Creek and Katherine. Booking your next Northern Territory adventure holiday has never been easier. Campstay offers a great selection of camping options in and around Northern Territory which include family friendly camp sites, motorhome and campervan powered sites, caravan sites and cabins.

Attractions

17 Mile Falls amaze all who are lucky enough to see them. A hidden gem, the waterfalls can only be accessed by trekkers on the Jatbula Trail. The trail is located in Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge) and is a one way 62 kilometre walk from Katherine Gorge (Nitmiluk) to Leliyn / Edith Falls that takes from 4 to 5 days to complete. 17 Mile Falls Campground is the third campground reached walking the trail, popular with walkers with its serene and striking scenery. The falls run throughout the year, fed by a permanent water source with the sandstone plateau acting as a huge sponge that slowly seeps water into rivers and creeks. Toilets and an Emergency Call Device (ECD) are located close by to campsites.

Whether you're in a 4WD, car or a motorhome, you won’t have difficulty driving to the Northern Territory. Sealed highways and well-maintained thoroughfares provide direct routes between Northern Territory, South Australia, Queensland and Western Australia. If you’re feeling adventurous, there are also less direct routes you can choose from. If you’re coming in from Queensland, take Barkly Highway. Alternate routes are available by taking unsealed parts of the Victoria Highway starting from Cairns. If you’re coming from Western Australia, you’d find there are only a few entry points going to the Northern Territory. From the north, you can take Butine Highway or Victoria Highway. Running across the south and Tanami Desert is Tanami Road. Driving from South Australia, go on the Stuart Highway through Coober Pedy and onto the Northern Territory. When you’re in the NT, you will drive through major centres of Alice Springs, Katherine and Tennant Creek and then arrive in Darwin.
