Fed by twin falls and fringed by shady trees, Florence Falls ranks as one of the park's front runners, particularly as it's swimmable almost year round. Reaching the fall's glistening jade-green swimming hole is half the appeal 👉 the walk is short, relatively easy and showcases the dramatic contrast between mighty sandstone escarpment and lush monsoon forest. An easy day trip from #Darwin, Litchfield may be a fraction of the size of Kakadu, but when it comes to swimming opportunities it packs a serious punch 👌 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @outtaorbit_! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd View on Instagram Don't mind us... we're just marble-ing at the view! 😜 A drive through our country’s heart is one every Aussie (and visitor!) should make, especially with so many amazing stops along the way, including the #DevilsMarbles (#KarluKarlu)! The Devils Marbles are piles of huge, and some not so huge, red and orange-coloured granite boulders, which look as though they’ve been dropped in the middle of the outback. This conservation reserve is special to the local aboriginal groups - the Warumungu, Kaytetye, Alyawarra and Warlpiri people, who call it Karlu Karlu, which roughly translates to ‘round boulders’. These formations come into their own at sunrise and sunset, when the soft light illuminates the changing colours of the granite, transforming them from stunning pinks to bright reds. Stay overnight at the bush campground or alternatively, you can find Devils Marbles Hotel just 8 kilometres down the road. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @floboniface! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT View on Instagram Need some inspo to get out of bed earlier? This should do the trick! @beyond925 recently captured this stunning sunrise overlooking @Darwin.Waterfront and @stokeshillwharf, #Darwin's very own leisure land with swimming lagoons, lush lawns and waterside restaurants. The NT's capital isn't just crocodiles and palm trees, Darwin offers travellers the chance to mix the outback with the city and the coast while also taking in some incredible sunrises and sunsets 💜 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Karen! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd View on Instagram @markgrayphoto described this sunrise at #KataTjuta (#TheOlgas) as “quite possibly the best I have ever seen in the NT". It's not hard to see why! This stunning shot was taken from the dune viewing area, one of the many designated viewing areas inside the national park. The platform here provides amazing views of Kata Tjuta and Uluru in the distance. Just 35 kilometres west of Uluru, the domes of Kata Tjuta 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). You can explore these ancient red ''rockbergs'' via walking trails that range from easy strolls to longer, more difficult tracks or view them from the air on a scenic flight. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Mark. #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT View on Instagram Visiting #Darwin? Make sure you hop on a scenic helicopter flight like @robmulally, who witnessed this spectacular sunrise over the winding Adelaide River with @airborne.solutions 🚁 This iconic river is known for its large population of saltwater crocodiles, arguably one of the NT's most fascinating animals. One of the best ways to see them in their natural environment is on a 'jumping crocodile cruise' with @jumpingcrocodilecruises or @adelaiderivertours. Watch as they rise (often vertically!) in the air to catch food as your knowledgeable guides explain more about these ancient creatures. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Rob! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd View on Instagram #KingsCanyon, have we told you how magnificent you look lately?! Only three hours from #Uluru, this speccy location features 100 metre high ancient sandstone walls 🙌 Lace up your walking boots and explore the Rim Walk 👉 this challenging but rewarding hike is 6 kilometres in length and skirts the edge of the canyon for much of the trail, providing Insta-worthy views of the cliffs and surrounding landscape. Our tip: As the weather warms up, it's best to start the walk bright and early - we promise the views at sunrise will be well worth the early wake-up! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @roaming_offtrack. #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT View on Instagram Great news, gang... the #FieldofLight at @ExploreUluru has been extended indefinitely from its previous close date of 31 December 2020! The exhibition, aptly named Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku or ‘looking at lots of beautiful lights’ in local Pitjantjatjara, is Bruce Munro's largest work to date, with more than 50,000 slender stems crowned with radiant frosted-glass spheres. The installation covers an area of more than seven football fields and invites visitors to wander through the network of pathways and watch this fantasy garden softly change colour from sunset to sunrise Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @imlukemackenzie! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT #ExploreUluru View on Instagram Nothing puts a spring in your step like the crystal clear waters of Bitter Springs! Rather inappropriately named for such a sweet spot, this sandy-bottomed lagoon has startlingly turquoise water 💦💙 Located an hour south of #Katherine in Elsey National Park, the natural spring-fed stream is wonderfully warm and surrounded by tropical woodlands. You'll float fancy-free a couple of hundred metres downstream before reaching a ladder at the end, where you can hop out and do it all over again! Our tip: Bring a swimming noodle - it makes the experience even more relaxing 👌 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @overlandtravellers. #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd View on Instagram Nothing to see here...just your standard #sunset helicopter flight over #Uluru! Even if you've walked around @Australia's most famous natural landmark, it's tricky to fully appreciate it's enormity until you've seen it from the air 🚁 @AyersRockHelicopters offer a variety of scenic flight options in the region, not only over Uluru, but also Kata Tjuta, Mount Conner, Lake Amadeus and Kings Canyon, ranging from 15 minutes to all day.
