Nitmiluk National Park in the Northern Territory is a collection of endless rivers, beautiful waterfalls and rocky cliff faces. It’s also home to many species of wildlife that are found in these types of eco-systems. It’s a huge expanse of land area and the view from above is about the best way to capture it all in a few minutes, we’re not talking drone, we’re talking get up there and see it yourself! You can head on a helicopter tour and take in those unreal views, some that you can’t access from the ground.

Take a cruise along the Yellow Water Billabong

The geographical features of its landscape are in total contrast to the famed red centre of the Northern Territory.

The cruisers come with experienced guides who are more than happy to point out the local wildlife including fascinating birds and some crocodile >> arms and legs inside the boat at all times RatPackers.

Airboat safari across Mary River floodplains

While a safari is not an activity often associated with the Australian continent, a visit to the River Flood Plains in the Northern Territory will make you think differently. Packed with diverse species of wildlife, this region is best experienced aboard an airboat safari. The safari is another unique way of interacting with the local wildlife on a journey that is definitely out of the ordinary.
