The Northern Territory' occupies the central northern region of Australia. The capital of NT is Darwin which is a great place to explore the weekly markets, as well as the annual Darwin Festival. Hiring a car in Northern Territory lets you travel the state at your leisure. The large area it covers means there is a wealth of places to visit and sights to see. Bush tracks, wildlife and endless elements of history are all waiting to be discovered as well as Kings Canyon which is a great hiking area. Be aware that the distance between populated areas can be far, so stock up on petrol and amenities before leaving and know your route.
In the Northern Territory it goes without saying that you should visit Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, otherwise known as Ayers Rock. This World Heritage site towers 350 metres above the ground and it's possible to climb all the way to the top. If you aren't feeling as energetic it is recommended that you view Ayers Rock from the base at sunrise or sunset where it takes on an impressive silhouette. Rent a car in Northern Territory and drive to Aquascene in Darwin where you are treated to the sight of hundreds of wild fish swimming into shallow waters where they are hand fed. This tradition has occurred for more than 60 years and it is not to be missed.
When driving in Northern Territory it is important to be aware that the road conditions in the region are prone to rapid change, especially during October to May when the wet season occurs. Make sure that before you set off on a trip you first check the road conditions. As the state's populous areas are so widely spread, rest stops are often few and far between, so it's best to take some snacks and essentially, a good stock of water for your trip to avoid going without for prolonged periods.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
