Great Places or Activities for Kids travelling the NT

Northern Territory

Finding great places for kids travelling the country is really your priority, as if they are happy on your travels, you will be happy.  So we asked our TAWK community for their suggestions and places that they have loved with their children in the Northern Territory and here are their suggestions. You might like to bookmark the page so that you can come back to it often.

If you have more suggestions, then please either comment on the bottom of the page and we will add to them or send us a message at 

There are some great photos at the bottom on the page to inspire you.

Also - if you are going to the Northern Territory, one of our TAWKing families have written an Activity Book to help the kids learn more in the area - see here.
