Northern Territory Australia

There are over 400 bird species to see in the Northern Territory of Australia: migrants on their way south; tropical and wetland birds, some with territories that extend to New Guinea and Indonesia; and the desert dwellers of the arid south. A good time to visit the north is the dry season between July and November.
