Travellers could squeeze even more into their Northern Territory tours this year by using the latest driving guide launched by Tourism NT.
In conjunction with the Northern Territory News, the tourism agency has revamped its Drive the NT guide to encourage visitors to spend more time in the state and explore regional areas.
Available from visitor information centres across the Northern Territory, the publication provides details on driving routes that take in attractions including Uluru, Kakadu National Park and the cities of Adelaide and Darwin.
Tourism NT chief executive Maree Tetlow said the region boasts "an array of fantastic options for driving holidays".
She added: "The information will enable [visitors] to slow down their trip and get more from the places they visit.
"There is a bit of a misconception that you have to have a four-wheel drive to travel in the Northern Territory, and while we boast some exciting and challenging adventure routes, most of our best known attractions can be accessed by two-wheel drive vehicles."
Tourism NT this year launched a new promotion to boost the number of backpackers visiting northern Australia.
Uluru/Ayers Rock – Visit the Aboriginal sacred site which is Australia’s most visited tourist attraction.
