The Our Family Getabout crew has some seriously itchy feet after working in Mt Isa for 10 MONTHS! It is time to hit the road and have some freedom again. But where are we going?

To explore the NT

Do the Northern Territory
Do th NT

We love the slogan and that’s exactly what we are planning on doing. Exploring as much of the Northern Territory as we possibly can.


We want to be able to see and experience the NT as much as we can. But sometimes the caravan can’t take us to all the places we want to go plus it slows us down. We can’t wait to do a 2-week camping trip to:

  • Chambers Pillar
  • Uluru
  • Kings Canyon
  • West Mcdonnell Ranges

It doesn’t sound like much but it’s approximately 1500km and including 4wd tracks.

When: Call us crazy but we are going to be camping in the Northern Territory in early July. Research tells me that the nights can drop below 0, so fingers crossed we don’t get to experience this.


We have allowed ourselves a couple of days to clean up and restock whilst seeing what Alice Springs has to offer. We have a couple of things in mind that are family friendly activities but if you have something in mind that we would love to do, we would appreciate the suggestions!



We have been travelling for over 3.5 years and have been waiting for the day where we can experience the Top End. We cannot wait to:

  • Fish until we drop
  • Check out some really big salties
  • Discover if Kakadu is Kakadoo or kakadon’t
  • Eat my way through Mindil Beach Market
  • Become a history buff about the local area

I can honestly see us staying in this area for at least a month.


This is completely new territory for us and we would love some help planning our trip. So if you can help us by recommending tours, places to stay or must see destinations then please comment below. We would love to hear all the amazing places we shouldn’t miss.

So come July we will C U in the NT!

C U IN THE NT - the very unofficial tourism slogan
Unofficial slogan C U IN THE NT

I know this isn’t the official tourism slogan but it still makes me smile that a cheeky Territorian could get away with something like this.

  1. Hey, sounds exciting! We have been here for about a month on the way to Darwin next week! Our kids r 7, 9 & 11 we loved the field of lights at Uluru, stayed at Kings Creek Station, had lots of room to ourselves there was donkeys & camels there. Also saw & heard dingoes. At Alice Springs we to the desert park, the nocturnal tour was the highlight of our 3 months away, seeing all these native animals that are extinct now in the area, it costs like $5 to get the day entry which we did a few days later the was great especially the film, the ending was huge! This week we have spent 7 days at bitter springs buggy a $3 noodle at kmart & ride down the river all day! Just a few little things from us!
