Top End: Darwin, Kakadu & the Kimberley

Visit Australia's Top End


Vast and beautiful, Australia’s remote Top End is one of the world’s last remaining true wilderness areas.

Kakadu is acknowledged as Australia’s most diverse and stunning landscape and its extraordinary natural beauty, unique biodiversity and cultural heritage make it perfect for real outback adventure travel.

The Kimberley region’s magnificent landscapes are unrivalled anywhere and the distant outback adventures to be had among the ancient rocky gorges of the Bungle Bungles, Karijini National Park and Gibb River Road are unmatched on the continent.

The seaside pearling town of Broome and the gorgeous Cable Beach mark the southern gateway to this spectacular expanse, while untamed Kununurra’s scorching red soils, wide-angle blue skies and unforgiving bush mark the easterly edge of the Kimberley’s wetlands, waterfalls and immense cattle stations.

The dry season, which runs from April to September is the most popular time for visiting the Top End, although you should be prepared for high daytime temperatures but far cooler nights. The wet season, which lasts from November to March but reaches its peak in January and February, can make travel tricky, especially on the mainly dirt roads that lead to the more remote regions of Kakadu, Litchfield and Arnhem land. After particularly heavy rains, some roads may be closed altogether.
