This incredible wilderness park is the star attraction of the Northern Territory and is revered for its extensive collection of animals as well as varied ecosystems to explore. Note that it is rather huge, so make sure you plan nothing else to do on the day you visit. The park is well laid out and a recent addition of a free mini-train to move about makes visiting less exhausting.
Home to endemic wildlife, the park offers visitors an in-depth look into the natural wonders that which make this continent so very unique. An aquarium tunnel allows you to get as close to saltwater crocodiles as you’ll hopefully ever get, the nocturnal house allows you a glimpse of the critters which roam this land in the dark of night, and the Birds of Prey presentation and Barramundi feeding show are two absolute highlights which you won’t want to miss. Nature aficionados can dive right into a monsoon vine forest, tropical wetlands and woodlands, making this one of the most comprehensive natural attractions in the whole country.
How to get there: You’ll find the Territory Wildlife Park about a 45 minute drive south of Darwin, in the lovely town of Berry Springs. Simply drive along the Stuart Highway (National Highway 1) and take the right-hand-side exit at State Route 34, also known as Cox Peninsula Road. You’ll find the park about 10kms along this road.
