The vast region of the Northern Territory, which is by no means the largest sector of Australia, but certainly one of the countries foremost frontiers and it has within its boundaries iconic destinations. There are many, indeed everyone has an opinion but there are some that should be on every traveller’s list of ‘Musts’. Some of these icons have faded, others have grown to become gems and so many are truly very much still a magnificent wilderness.
I’m on an adventure at the moment, a treasure hunt and I feel like a crusader in the Lost Ark from the Indiana Jones series. You see I found a treasure map, some years ago now. It was in the back of an old tome of Australian Lore and Legend from the Dreamtime. The study, later published a number of times was written over a hundred years ago by an anthropologist in his record of ancient Australian tribal custom and structure.
