Just an hour south of #Katherine and moments from the small township of #Mataranka, this little piece of paradise is only a five minute walk from the car park. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @averyaerial_photography! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEndView on Instagram This little guy sure knows his best angles 😍 @mandihefflinger described her second visit to @TheKangarooSanctuary “just as magical as the first." There’s no better way to meet @Australia's most famous locals than a sunset tour at the sanctuary where you can cuddle and feed a baby kangaroo. The main mission for the sanctuary, based just outside of #AliceSprings, is to rescue, rehabilitate and release orphaned baby kangaroos back into the wild. Those who can’t be return to the wild are released into their 188 acre property. Tours run from Tuesday to Friday. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Mandi. #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNTView on Instagram Located just an hour and a half from #Darwin, Florence Falls boasts its own plunge pool set under cascading water surrounded by monsoon forest 👌 After a refreshing dip at this little piece of paradise, wander up to the viewing platform high above the falls and take in the view of the valley and waterhole below. Due to it's accessibility, #Litchfield National Park is the locals' pick for a camping weekend or an adventurous day out bush walking and swimming - not to mention its pretty easy on the eye 😍 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @insta_ines_travels! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEndView on Instagram Wow. Just WOW 🙌 The ancient red rock formations of #KataTjuta (#TheOlgas) rise seemingly out of nowhere from the dusty land. From a distance it may look like one single rock, but it's actually a group of 36 domes that sit shoulder to shoulder and form a spectacular and unique configuration of deep valleys and steep gorges spread over more than 20 kilometres (12.4 miles) Kata Tjuta is a Pitjantjatjara Aboriginal word meaning "many heads". Roughly 35 kilometres west of #Uluru, you can see them up close along one of the walking trails or from a helicopter on a scenic flight. Kata Tjuta looks particularly beautiful at sunset 🧡 Please note: @saltywings obtained special permission from @seeuluru and Traditional Owners to use drones within the national park. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @saltywings! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNTView on Instagram Make sure you get a window seat on your way to #Darwin 😉 The NT's unhurried capital is well known for its balmy nights, colourful characters and outdoor adventures. As well as markets, crocodiles and cruises, you'll find strong Aboriginal culture and a number of national parks right on your door step. Perched on a harbour five times the size of Sydney's and home to some of @Australia's most instagrammable sunsets, Darwin is the ultimate tropical escape 🙌 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @sparetimelife! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEndView on Instagram It’s not hard to see why Nitmiluk (#Katherine) Gorge is a Top End must do! The gorge-ous views and breathtaking walking tracks will impress even the most adventurous of hearts, or maybe you’ll choose to take it easy on a boat cruise with @NitmilukTours. Open year round, the region is home to some of the most stunning gorge scenery in the NT. Consisting of 13 separate gorges, this maze of waterways stretches for 12 kilometres and extends more than 70 metres high. Our tip: check out Baruwei lookout at sunrise or sunset! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @carissaspataro. #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd #NitmilukNTView on Instagram The iconic red rock, #Uluru has to be seen to be believed. At sunrise and sunset it’s radiance is unlike anything else, surrounded by the dreamy colours of the desert sky. There are a number of experiences that take you right up close, including the 10.6 kilometre Base Walk. As the name suggests, the trail circles the entire base of this ochre-coloured monolith and takes roughly 3.5 hours if you do the whole thing. If you're not keen on doing it on foot, you can hire a bike from @outbackcycling or join a segway tour with @ulurusegwaytours. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @haililorensalt! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT #SeeUluruView on Instagram We're coming to you from Wangi Falls where it's wet, wild and wonderful! With a stunning cliff face, an emerald-toned plunge pool and a cafe on-site, there's every reason to sit back and enjoy your surroundings. #Litchfield National Park may be a fraction of the size of Kakadu, but when it comes to adventure opportunities, this national park has it in spades! While the falls are currently closed for swimming due to flooding, this impressive sight is still well worth a visit over the tropical summer. However, if you're keen for a dip within the park, Florence Falls and Buley Rockhole are open for swimming 👌💦 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @mattyparry96! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEndView on Instagram Sending you a postcard from paradise, also known as #EastArnhemLand 🍃 This is Lonely Beach, a very beautiful (and real!) place that you can explore on a tour with aboriginal-owned organisation @Lirrwi Tourism.
