Cheap flights to the Northern Territory
Split into 2 distinct pieces, any Northern Territory holiday offers an amazing outlook on some of Australia's most remote cities, towns and attractions. The top half of NT is known as the Top End and the bottom half is known as the Red Centre. The Top End is home to the capital city, Darwin, and World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park, while the Red Centre houses the outback town of Alice Springs, Tennant Creek and Uluru (a.k.a. Ayer's Rock). Darwin is a great place to start and end your Northern Territory holiday with a vibrant local community, great bars and pubs, a busy backpacker vibe and plenty of cheap accommodation. To full appreciate Kakadu National Park during any Northern Territory holiday, visitors need to travel, take the time and fully immerse themselves in the local Aboriginal culture, the wildlife and diverse landscapes. If you’re looking for the best cheap flights and holiday packages to the Northern Territory, Student Flights' experienced travel consultants can help you to sort through the best deals around.
Flights to the Northern Territory arrive at Darwin International Airport (DRW), which handles mainly domestic flights and some international flights from nearby islands. To get from the airport to your accommodation and city centre, a range of public transport and taxis are at your disposal. Most hotels and resorts will also offer a shuttle service.
