View in the wild, at national parks, and on nature tours and cruises, thousands of species of flora, native animals and birds across the northern territories. Nature and Wildlife in Northern Territory flourishes from the coastal plains to the monsoon tropics, providing an expanse of varying eco-systems.
In the NT live more than 400 species of birds including a number of endangered and uncommon species, bringing thousands of domestic and foreign tourists here to ‘tick their list!’ We do have 150 mammals including kangaroos, wallabies, the unusual Northern quoll, sweet sugar-gliders and more tonnes. More than 300 reptiles, including saltwater and freshwater crocodiles, can be seen in the Top End in most rivers and billabongs, or in Darwin’s wildlife parks. There are 50 frog species, 60 freshwater fish species and several hundred sea fish species. The Northern Territory is actually the best place to get your wildlife and nature repaired.
Wildlife is best seen on a walk or at one of our wildlife parks. You can cuddle a joey at the Kangaroo Sanctuary in Alice Springs, or visit dingoes in the Alice Springs Desert Park, and pet a blue-tongued lizard at Reptile Centre. In Darwin you can visit the Crocodylus Park, Territory Wildlife Area, carry a baby crocodile or brave the ‘Cage of Death’ at Crocosaurus Cove. You can not walk past a boat on one of our many rivers for some amazing wildlife tours. Do not skip a tour of the turtle tracks with Sea Darwin where you can watch the baby tortoises return to the big blue.
Check out the cruises on Corroboree Billabong, just 1.5 hours drive from Darwin, or on the popular Kakadu National Park’s Yellow Water Billabong.
