7 Day Selfdrive Route from Alice Springs to Darwin
|• Access: 2 Wheel Drive
on sealed roads access
• Start: From Alice Springs
• Finish: To Darwin in Northern Territory
• Total Distance: 1639 kms
• Highlights: West MacDonnell Ranges,
Aboriginal Art & Culture Centre, Alice Springs, Devil’s
Marbles ancient rock formations, Mataranka Hot Springs,
Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) National Park.
Day 1: Alice Springs
Alice Springs has plenty of interesting Outback history.
Include a visit to the historic Old Telegraph Station,
the Royal Flying Doctor Service Visitor Centre (daily
tours), the Aboriginal Art and Culture Centre, and other
historic buildings; or for the more adventurous, take
a ride on a camel. Just west of Alice Springs detour
to explore the stunning landscapes and magnificent gorges
of the surrounding McDonnell Ranges, including Simpsons
Gap and Angkerle (Standley Chasm).
Day 2: Alice Springs to Tennant
Travelling north from Alice, you have several hours
of driving (approx 400 kms) to the Devils Marbles. Head
off early. The Devils Marbles have
been formed over millions of years, a great spot for
photos. After departing the Devils Marbles continue
on to Tennant Creek, the modern outback gold mining
town, where you stay the night. Tennant Creek has a
very strong Aboriginal heritage, and you can learn about
the culture from murals around the town, by visiting
the Aboriginal art gallery or watch the locals as they
create their paintings and objects. More information
on the local area is available at the Information Centre.
Local attractions include the Nyinkka Nyunyu Art and
Culture Centre and Battery Hill Mining Centre.
Day 3: Tennant Creek to Mataranka
A big day of driving is ahead to Mataranka, so it is
recommended to get on the road early. Make a short stop,
lunch and refuel at Hi-Way Inn (proper roadhouse) lunch
at Daly Waters Pub about 5km has limited
fuel options, but is worth a stop for lunch and to check
out it’s history.
Day 4: Mataranka to Katherine
The best feature of Mataranka, is the Mataranka
Hot Springs. This incredible sight is a crystal
clear pool that maintains a continuous temperature of
34 degrees Celsius and bubbles from an underground spring
at a stunning rate of around 30.5 million litres each
day to feed the rivulet and water holes. Head off just
before lunch to Katherine (approx 112 kms). Enjoy the
afternoon in Katherine or the nearby Nitmiluk National
Day 5: Katherine
The most significant tourist attraction near Katherine
is the 180,000 hectare Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) National
Park, located 32 kms northeast of Katherine. The
Katherine Gorge is actually made up of 13 separate
gorges. The park offers a range of activities, so you
can spend the day swimming, bushwalking, boating canoeing,
helicopter joy flights etc.
Day 6: Katherine to Litchfield
Head off early to travel the approximate 200 kms to
the Township of Adelaide River. Take some time to visit
the beautifully maintained World War II cemetery in
a peaceful location by the banks of the river. 434 servicemen
and 54 civilians killed during the Japanese air raids
on Darwin are buried here. The Adelaide River
itself flows north and reaches the Timor Sea approximately
50 kilometres north-east of Darwin. It is best known
for its large population of saltwater crocodiles that
are the focus for cruises on the river. (The Jumping
Crocodile Adelaide River Queen Cruise departs from Adelaide
River Bridge on the Arnhem Highway via Humpty Doo).
Continue north and take the left-turn to Litchfield
National Park, just west off the highway. Litchfield
is popular for spectacular waterfalls, intriguing ‘magnetic’
termite mounds and beautiful pools for year-round swimming.
Camp the night in the National Park or stay nearby in
the township of Batchelor.
Day 7: Litchfield National Park to Darwin
Enjoy the morning in Litchfield National Park
before the final drive to Darwin. On the way, don’t
miss the Territory Wildlife Park, where you can see
native fauna, a nocturnal house, aquarium and huge walk-through
Also worth a visit is the Berry Springs Nature Park.
Both are located just west of the highway as you head
towards Darwin, your final destination and capital of
