Getting To & From

By Road

Excellent sealed highways provide easy access into the Top End region. The Stuart Highway from Adelaide, the Barkly Highway from Queensland, and the Victoria Highway from Western Australia are sealed all the way. For the more adventurous traveller, access into the Top End may also be made by way of the Savannah Way, entering our region from Queensland on an unsealed road that starts at Wollogorang. But no matter which way you decide to go, caravanning or driving, the Top End offers an incredible range of attractions and top class facilities for our motoring and caravanning visitors, to ensure that your visit to the region is a memorable one. Hire a vehicle in the Top End here.
