Territory safari

– Tania Martin
PEOPLE wanting to experience the wild adventures of a safari should look no further than the Pungalina Station in the Northern Territory.
It is the perfect time to plan for that winter escape and Pungalina Station offers a unique Outback experience not to be missed.
Holiday makers can take an air tour across Australia from Melbourne in a twin-engine aircraft for six to eight passengers and spend four to five days at Pungalina Station.
Air tours can also be tailored to suit individual groups.
Set in a remote wilderness safari camp, Pungalina Station has more than 202,000 hectares of breathtaking sandstone escarpments, rugged gorges, crystal clear rivers and 1.5 billion year old limestone caves.
Barramundi fishing, canoeing, gorges, caves and bird watching tours are just some of the outback adventures that people can enjoy.
The safari camp resort also has a diverse range of plants and animal wildlife, including the unusual stromatolite formations.
Visitors can also enjoy explore the waterholes, crocodile habitats, caves or can experience the thrill of canoeing down the Calvert River.
People wanting to hook a line can take a day tour to the coast and go fishing for barramundi, or see pythons, prolific birdlife and some of the extraordinary flora and fauna.
Holiday makers can take this great escape from Melbourne by flying to Pungalina Station or hiring a four wheel drive and taking a road trip.
Pungalina Station is a very comfortable camp with tented accommodation with beds, hot showers and flushing toilets and even has a great thermal spring.
