The Best Tours in Darwin & the Northern Territory

One of the largest, wildest and most uncompromisingly beautiful remote regions in the world, the Northern Territory has a unique curiosity and charm that’s difficult to match. But with such long roads and unapologetic terrain, capturing the full experience of Australia’s Top End can be difficult, especially if you’re only visiting for a short period of time. If you’re looking for some of the best tours that Darwin and its surrounds have to offer, then read on. From breathtaking airboat tours, fishing with crocodiles, to full-blown safari experiences, the Outback Wrangler has some truly amazing adventures to share with you.

Airboat tours from Darwin Harbour

If you’re looking to feel the exhilarating rush of an airboat adventure without spending hours in transit to get to your location, try booking a tour with Wild Territory’s Darwin Adventure Boats. Designed to give you the experience of a lifetime, our adventure boats are the only airboat tour in the city with access to Darwin Harbour and its stunning marine environments. So, if you’re in town, all you’ll need to do is book your tour and walk down to the harbour. Just remember to bring a bottle of water, a camera, a hat, and maybe a change of clothes… experiences like these can get muddy!

Day and Night Safari Tours out of Darwin

For a taste of some of the best activities that the Top End has to offer, come and check out our all-inclusive Top End Safari Camp Tours. Available as a day tour or as an overnight glamping experience, the Top End Safari Camp is one of the best ways to immerse yourself in the rugged scenery of Darwin’s surrounds.

Disembarking from Darwin City, the tour starts with sights of the NTs floodplains from a scenic helicopter, followed by close sightings of crocodiles, birds and even wild buffalo while whipping around in an airboat. Unwind on a billabong cruise while enjoying a fresh BBQ brunch, while taking in the beauty of the Litchfield region. The day tour then concludes with some up close and personal action, meeting and greeting monster crocodiles, caught by the ‘Outback Wrangler’ himself. If you’re sticking around for the night, you’ll be moving on to a private location off the Finnis River for a bespoke outback glamping experience, featuring a BBQ dinner by the fireside as you gaze at the amazing Northern Territory night sky.

Tours of Tiwi Island – Darwin’s Best Kept Secret

Imagine a remote, natural paradise, where you’re completely off grid, and you’d be imagining the secluded marine sanctuary that is the Tiwi Island Retreat. One of Australia’s premier barefoot destinations, the Tiwi Island Retreat is in a hidden spot on the edge of Bathurst Island, offering spectacular beach front views and the perfect base to take part in the Retreat’s package offerings which include world-class fishing adventures, Indigenous culture tours and breathtakingly unique wildlife encounters.
