14-Day Northern Territory Top End (Wet Season) Road Trip

Home » Journey » Long Trips » 14-Day Northern Territory Top End (Wet Season) Road Trip

The Northern Territory is home to some of Australia’s most incredible landscapes. Just in the top end, not far from the capital of Darwin, lies the renowned living cultural landscape that is Kakadu National Park and the beloved swimming and waterfall heaven, Litchfield National Park.

While peak season is during the cooler mid-calendar months is when most people visit, what kept ringing in my mind was the saying, “You’ve never seen the Northern Territory until you’ve seen it in the wet season.”

Because of how literal the central state takes the verse, “the land of flooding rains”, many places are seasonally closed every year because of rains that flood the Earth every summer. Boy, there’s a lot.

But that wasn’t enough to throw this weather appreciator off the scent. The thought of seeing iconic landscapes in a way that few visitors get to see was alluring and of thundering swimmable waterfalls in full flow and epic storms had me sold to visit the Top End of the Northern Territory at its wettest.

With the summer storms on the way and the state borders feeling pretty safe to travel in the brave, new CO-VID world, I flew north to Darwin and spent two weeks exploring the incredible national parks of Litchfield and Kakadu on an obscenely hot and soaking wet 14-day Northern Territory Top End Road Trip.
