It is no secret that the heartbeat of Darwin and the Northern Territory at large is found in its wilderness. From the Kakadu National Park, to the Tiwi Islands to Arnhem Land, the epitome of the Outback and of Australia's most iconic natural scenes is found in and around Darwin, and renting your own 4WD is the only way to really experience it.
Whether you pick up a rental at Darwin Airport or in Alice Springs, simply make the trip into the Darwin town centre (often one-way trips do not incur full fees), switch to your 4WD and hit the dirt tracks. Not only does the 4WD track to Alice Springs and iconic Uluru take you through a vista of dramatic changes in landscape and scenery, 4WD tours in any direction from Darwin take you inevitably into some hidden gallery of natural wonders, whether it be the clear rock pools of Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks or the ancient Aboriginal Art of Arnhem Land (3 hours east of Darwin).

With a range of 4WD rentals available, small to large sizes catering to a range of needs, you can pick your ideal vehicle and search out the perfect camping ground, the perfect photograph of the Australian wildlife, or the perfect spot for fishing the local barramundi (secure a fishing permit first). Then kick back in the Australian sunset with your tour group or your single companion - all quiet but for the sounds of the Outback.
