Casual clothing is very much a part of the Territory lifestyle. However, reasonable dress standards are maintained in restaurants, hotels and casinos. For example, men should wear open-necked shirts, trousers and shoes.Even in summer it is advisable to have a warm sweater because an evening of 15°C can seem quite cool after a 38°C day. And remember to bring a good pair of comfortable walking shoes. In the bush you will be more comfortable in jeans or similar practical clothing, and strong comfortable rubber-sole shoes.
It´s a good idea to always carry an adequate supply of any medication you may require. Hats, sunglasses, sun lotions and blockout creams are also a must.

The Aboriginal people of Australia´s Northern Territory represent one of the world´s oldest, if not oldest, continuing cultural tradition.In recent years, Aboriginal communities have been keen to develop opportunities through which they can relate part of their stories, lifestyle and traditions for visitors. Consequently their tours are very special, for the guides have had 40 000 years of training in Aboriginal culture. Visitors can participate in and learn more about the rich cultural tradition from the custodians.
