100 Greatest Holidays of Australia: Defining a ‘best’ place to see our indigenous rock art? Impossible.For starters, art is incredibly subjective, but more to the point, seeing our rock art isn’t about pretty pictures; it’s about respect and understanding. To confront such palpable evidence of the many cultures who lived here before us is a powerful, humbling experience. But it’s also an incredibly rewarding one.

100 Greatest Holidays of Australia: more and more operators are offering trips to showcase the beauty of their area in the wet. Full gorges, thunderous waterfalls, and verdant deserts, a trip to the Top End during wet season is a trip on steroids – everything’s bigger, except the queues. “And the rates!” adds Jen Pinkerton. “It’s all weather theatrics, mega-strength waterfalls and an abundance of wildlife.”

100 Greatest Holidays of Australia: there are really two ways you need to see it: in the wet (December to March), when the incredible colours (and even more incredible weather) make for an empirical overload; and in the dry, when you can swim the waterholes (like this one, known as the top pool of Gunlom Falls), walk the walks and sleep under the stars sans fear of a tent flood.
