Luxury Rental Lodges in the Northern Territory

The Northern Territory is located in the north and central northern regions of Australia. It is the third largest federal division of the country with an area of over 1,349,129 square kilometres (520,902 sq mi). Internationally recognised landmarks such as Litchfield and Kakadu National Park, Katherine Gorge and the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park (Ayers Rock) are popular attractions.

The distinctive and majestic landscape of the Northern Territory is home to a rich aboriginal history that dates back to 40,000 years as well as breath-taking wetlands and native wildlife, where animals like the crocodile; kangaroo, emu and eagle roam free.

Owing to its sparse population the Northern Territory lays claim to a large portion of luxury secluded and unspoiled lodge resorts in Australia’s natural wilderness.

Visitors who wish to choose accommodation for a short holiday break or special occasion, such as a wedding or celebration are blessed with a wealth of properties, from safari and bush lodges, to ranch and farm stays, to luxury camping sites.
