The ancient red rock formations of #KataTjuta (#TheOlgas) rise seemingly out of nowhere from the arid land. Kata Tjuta is a Pitjantjatjara Aboriginal word meaning "many heads". 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). 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 sunrise and sunset when the formations change colour 🧡 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @floboniface! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT View on Instagram #Litchfield National Park is full of hidden gems but this heavenly spot has to be one of its brightest! Say 👋 to Tjaynera/Sandy Creek Falls! Located just 1.4 kilometres from the carpark, Sandy Creek was made for days filled with life's simple pleasures - kicking back with a good book, a cool dip or a stroll through the monsoon forest. These falls are accessible by 4WD vehicle only, making them an idyllic spot for a quiet camping weekend filled with frolicking in the clear waters of the plunge pool. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @powershala! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd View on Instagram You'll feel on the top of the world at #KingsCanyon! Only three hours from #Uluru, this amazing destination is not to be missed, featuring 100 metre high ancient sandstone walls. Lace up your hiking boots and explore the rim walk - this challenging but spectacular hike is 6 kilometres in length and skirts the edge of the canyon for much of the trail, providing magnificent views of the cliffs and surrounding landscape. Watarrka National Park is way more than just a day trip destination; why not explore the region's walking trails, four-wheel drive tracks, cultural tours along with accommodation options ranging from camping to resort-style rooms. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @roaming_offtrack. #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT View on Instagram Keep an 👀 out for the Poinciana tree in @TourismTopEnd - they're only in full bloom for around 4-6 weeks usually during October-November! Commonly known as Flame trees, their bright red flowers are arguably one of the Top End's prettiest sights at this time of the year. You can spot them around #Darwin and surrounds 🧡😍 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @akarshmohan! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd View on Instagram It's rude NOT to stare at Jim Jim Falls 😜 This iconic #Kakadu National Park location is famous for its astonishing cliffs and thundering waterfalls and can be reached by a 2 kilometre return walking trail. While the track is graded as moderately difficult and involves scrambling over large boulders in some parts, you'll be rewarded with a deep plunge pool and family-friendly beach pool, all surrounded by dramatic Jurassic Park-style scenery. With the tropical summer fast approaching, Jim Jim won't be open for much longer as the rains come and the roads flood - it typically becomes accessible again mid-year once the water levels have gone down. But while it’s closed by road, it’s still possible to see it from the air! Hop on a scenic flight tour for incredible views of the waterfall in full flow 🙌 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @roamingwith_roma! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd #SeeKakadu View on Instagram Pull up your camp chair... the show is about to begin! One of the great natural wonders of the world, #Uluru towers above the surrounding landscape. It's not until you see it in person that you realise how BIIIG it really is! While this iconic monolith looks incredible at any time of the day, golden hour is particularly special. As the sun hits it on its way down, the colour of the rock changes from a sizzling red to burnt orange to a deep purple as the light fades. Head to one of the many viewing platforms dotted throughout the park for the best views - this is the car sunset viewing area! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @we_who_roam! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT View on Instagram The West MacDonnell Ranges are famous for their postcard-like scenery 😍 Shaded by towering cliffs and ghost gums, Simpsons Gap is the first of many adventure stops just west of #AliceSprings. Water flows through a small gap in the ranges providing a sheltered haven for a range of native wildlife like the resident black footed rock wallabies. There are a handful of walking trails, all varying in length, for those looking to explore more, or alternatively you can simply just sit and enjoy the view. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @wetookaholiday! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT View on Instagram Our mates at @cottonon are offering the trip of a lifetime for two people to the Top End, including return airfares and accommodation 🙌 You’ll get to stay at #Darwin’s iconic @mindilbeachresort, enjoy a helicopter ride over the breathtaking Nitmiluk Gorge with @nitmilukhelitouring, indulge in a sunset dinner cruise with @nitmiluktours and explore tropical hot springs, waterfalls and waterholes—and so much more. Click the link in our bio to enter or check out our story 👌 Open to AU + NZ only #NTaustralia View on Instagram The lookout at Ubirr is easily one of #Kakadu National Park’s highlights, particularly at sunset 💚 The large rock escarpment is free of handrails and concrete pathways, which is very much part of the appeal. After a 250 metre climb, you’re greeted with views across the floodplains and Arnhem Land. The sublime scenes from the tallest of Ubirr’s rocky outcrops is unforgettable 🙌 Dragonflies dart about and cockatoos call out as a golden ball of fire sinks into the green of the Nadab floodplain below. The lookout is reached via an impressive Aboriginal rock-art gallery, considered one of the best in the world, with fine examples of x-ray painting as well as contact art from the time when Indigenous people first encountered Europeans.
