What a whirlwind….The Northern Territory Tourism Conference – Towards 2030 took us to Darwin and Alice Springs, but the natural beauty, welcoming service and incredible experiences will lure us back.
The highlight was taking an Outback Tour Services 3 day tour out to Uluru and then back to the start of the MacDonnell Ranges. A-m-a-z-i-n-g! I think the best part was the sense of confidence we had in our guide, once we knew what vehicle we were traveling in for the 3 days, we could sit back and enjoy the scenery. Oh and the unbelievable accessible room we had at Sails in the Desert.
Our trip was at the end of wet season which posed a few challenges in Darwin, with many tours not running including some of the cruises that had accessible vessels that had been put away since COVID.
In Darwin we hired a car and went on a jumping croc tour, checked out Fogg Dam and Howard Springs. Plus walking all around the waterfront and going to the Royal Flying Doctors Service Tourist Facility which tells an incredible story of how the service came into fruition and also the bombing of Darwin harbour.
Thank you to Northern Territory Tourism for putting accessible tourism on the agenda.
