Can we just hit pause on this glorious show of colour?! 😍 Not visited by winter and with a relaxed, small-town feel, our stunning capital #Darwin is perched on a harbour fives times the size of Sydney’s. Famous for its multicultural food, outdoor markets, waterside attractions and warm holiday vibe year-round, it's hard not to fall in love with Darwin's easygoing lifestyle. If you're planning a visit, @MindilBeachResort is the ultimate escape with 30 acres of tropical gardens fringed by the crystal blue Arafura Sea. It's also well worth hiring a car or joining a tour to Litchfield National Park or Kakadu National Park - both are within 3 hours' drive of the city. Talk about nature right on your doorstep! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, ​@ryanlampano. ​#SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd

What better way to start your outback experience than with an early morning balloon flight 🎈 You'll get to see the desert come to life as the sun rises over the MacDonnell Ranges. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife down below, including kangaroos! Once you land, tasty treats and sparkling wine await - the perfect end to this unreal adventure if you ask us! 🥂 @Outback_ballooning run daily flights year round just outside of #AliceSprings. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @_aswewander. ​#SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

G’day from @NTaustralia… yes, that’s right – we’ve got a new name! 🤠 While we might have changed our handle, we’re still the home of outback @australia…an adventure seeker’s mecca with spellbinding national parks, Aboriginal culture, crystal clear waterfalls, ancient monoliths and tropical town charms. It doesn't matter whether you're young or old, keen for adventure or looking to relax, on a budget or ready to splurge, a holiday in the Northern Territory is an experience like no other. #NTaustralia #SeeAustralia

Tell your boss you won't be coming in tomorrow... these heavenly hot springs are waiting for you! 😎 #Mataranka Thermal Pool can be found an hours' drive south of #Katherine, the unofficial gateway to the tropics. These stunning springs bubble up at 34 degrees to fill a semi-man made pool of perfectly turquoise water under a shady canopy of stretching palms. It's one of three crystal clear thermal pools in the region - make sure you also check out Bitter Springs and Katherine Hot Springs 💦 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @scottypass! ​#SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd #VisitKatherine

Just 90 minutes' from #Darwin you'll find Buley Rockhole in #Litchfield National Park. Buley is insanely beautiful and has a collection of picture perfect rock holes for you to pick from 🌱💦 Like many places in the Top End, you'll easily lose track of time here when the serenity starts to sinks in. If you're still not convinced it's a must do, we'd better tell you that Florence Falls and Wangi Falls are only minutes away as well. It really is nature’s ultimate water park!

Pull up a bar stool to enjoy a drink, a meal and a good old chin wag with a true local at the historic @DalyWatersPub. Clad in corrugated iron, draped with bougainvilleas and crammed with decades of memorabilia, the pub began serving passengers arriving on the new Qantas airline in 1934 and was the first international runway and airport in Australia. As a popular watering hole along the track, the Daly Waters Pub holds a liquor licence that has been in continuous use since 1938. Located just 3 hours south of #Katherine, the pub offers a variety of accommodation ranging from budget rooms to two bedroom cabins. An extensive menu served every night during the dry season includes a range of salads, steaks, lamb, chicken, and best of all fresh local wild caught Territory barramundi and thread fin salmon. You'll soon forget the hustle and pressures of city slicker life at this happy go lucky pub where the daily special is a good dose of outback hospitality 🤠 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, ​@explorewithmegs! ​#SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd

How can a place be so dramatic and serene at the same time?! @_aswewander recently dropped in at Ellery Creek Big Hole, one of the West MacDonnell Ranges' many swimming holes. Located roughly 90 kilometres west of #AliceSprings, you're sure to feel worlds away from the daily hustle and bustle at this magnificent spot. With the Red Centre currently experiencing glorious spring temperatures, it's the ultimate time for an outback adventure. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Luke and Jess! ​#SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

There's no better spot to spend your Sunday evening than the @MindilMarket 😍☀️ Watching the sun disappear into the ocean should be a rite of passage for all visitors to #Darwin! The city's best features - its relaxed atmosphere, Asian-inspired food and sunsets - meet in tropical harmony at these iconic markets every Thursday and Sunday evening. Wander the many eclectic stalls, take in the live entertainment, grab yourself a tasty laksa and then settle in for the main show on the beach 👌 ​Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia,! ​#SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd

The #LarapintaTrail is one of @Australia's finest walks, situated just out of #AliceSprings and spanning 223kms across the West MacDonnell Ranges. This long distance walking track is divided into 12 sections that each take one or two days to walk. Described by @AustralianGeographic as "one of the world's best long-distance arid-zone walks", this spectacular desert trek traverses the ridgelines of the mountain ranges from east to west. From the big blue skies that offer a stunning contrast against the sunburned landscape of the ranges, to some of the most spectacular geological formations in the region, this trail truly showcases the diversity of the Red Centre.
