Welcome to AusEmade Snapshots from the Northern Territory. The Northern Territory (shortened to NT), is an interesting region to explore, providing some memorable experiences, with iconic and quirky festival and events, breathtaking scenery and a range of climatic conditions from monsoonal rains to arid desert.
The territory is often divided between the ‘Top End’ and ‘Darwin’, or ‘Central Australia’ and ‘Alice Springs’, although there is plenty of interesting places in between.
Following are some snapshots of the Territory, that we hope will tantalise your senses to come and experience what there is.
Checkout some of our travels and stories, with more to come.
