Camping in the Northern Territory
Dense, hot and humid tropical forests cover the top part of the Northern Territory where you can camp next to rivers, springs, lakes and waterfalls, & if there aren’t any crocodiles around, these are also some of the best swimming spots in the country!
Just below Darwin is Litchfield National Park and Kakadu National Park, both are home to thick forests on top of jagged hills and mountains with loads of creeks, waterfalls and incredible campgrounds.
As you head south, you’ll need plenty of water and be leaving with red sand that’s made its way through just about all of your gear.
Most of the best places to camp as you drive from the top end to the red centre are near springs or mountain ranges, which are there are plenty of, but usually pretty far apart. Katherine Gorge, Kings Canyon & Uluru being the main places to explore on your way through.
Here are the different campgrounds in the Northern Territory that have been mentioned in the WAY&FARER blog.
