Now is the time to start planning your next road trip through the Northern Territory. It is only passable during the dry season, which is the winter. Nature’s Way is a rugged and remote, adventurous road trip through the Top End of Australia’s Northern Territory. The name says it all, this journey really helps you get in touch with the beautiful nature here in one of the most  untouched places in the world. The road trip is a triangle including Darwin through the Adelaide and Mary River wetlands, parts of the gigantic Kakadu National Park and the magnificent landscapes of Litchfield National Park. If you are not familiar with Australia’s climate, it is important that you understand that the north is tropical and it is hot and humid, even during the winter dry season.  The whole Top End of Australia gets warmer and more humid the further north you go. Be sure to dress appropriately and still drink plenty of water; the humidity can be deceiving. Our blog today will be covering a 7 day itinerary of a possible holiday journey that is part on land and part cruise. Continue reading

Nattai National Park is located south of the Blue Mountains and is adjacent to Kanangra-Boyd National Park  which we have featured before. It is just a 1 ½ hour to 2 hour drive from Sydney. It is located 150 km south west of Sydney. This protected park along with seven other national parks all make up the UNESCO World Heritage listed Greater Blue Mountains Area. We previously featured some of the national parks in the region north of Sydney in New South Wales including the Greater Blue Mountains Area National Parks as well as other national parks in the region.  We featured Berowra Valley National Park, Marramarra National Park, and Dharug National Park  and Yengo National Park. Previously, we highlighted several other National Parks in this region including Blue Mountains National Park, Ku-ring-ga National Park, Royal National Park, Brisbane Water National Park, Gardens of Stone National Park, and Wollemi National Park.  Today, we are featuring Nattai National Park. Visiting a national park helps contribute to their protection and is an excellent way to be able to enjoy the Australian wilderness. Nattai National Park includes the Nattai River, the Little River, Allum River and the Wollondilly River, the dramatic Hawkesbury sandstone cliffs, Mount Jellore and is heavily forested. Even though it is this close to Sydney, it is one of the more remote national parks and is not as well visited as many of the other national parks of this region. If you are into remote wilderness exploration, then Nattai National Park is for you. While there, you can also visit the Nattai State Conservation Area, the Burragorang State Conservation Area, Lake Burragorang, the Bargo State Conservation Area, the Wombeyan Caves, and the Yerranderie State Conservation Area.
