Ravi discovered the natural beauty of Australia’s Northern Territory as a Qantas Explorer.

Arriving in Darwin he visited the Top End’s largest city. From there, he flew to the cultural heart of Australia and took in the ancient wonders of Uluru. No trip to the Northern Territory would be complete without a stop in Alice Springs before flying back home to the US.
