You'll find this spring-fed thermal pool hidden amongst tropical woodlands in Elsey National Park just outside the small town of #Mataranka. Discovered by surveyors for the Overland Telegraph Line in the late 1800's, the park was made famous in Jeannie Gunn's popular novel 'We of the Never Never'. Be sure to bring some goggles and a swimming noodle - the soft current will gently take you a hundred metres or so downstream before you reach a ladder, where you can hop out and do it all again! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Scott. #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd View on Instagram Dracarys! 🔥 Don’t despair @gameofthrones fans...while the TV show might be over, you can still meet real-life "dragons" in @VisitCentralAus 😜 Thorny Devils (also known as mountain devils or thorny lizards) are day-active, ant-eating reptiles that grow 20cm long and can live 20 years. When they locate a trail of ants they lick them up with their short, sticky tongue... scientists calculate that Thorny Devil's might eat a thousand or more ants in a single meal 😮 The @AliceSpringsDesertPark currently have two on display in the Nocturnal House, otherwise, it's possible to see them sometimes in the wild in Central @Australia! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @benrmphotos. #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT #GameOfThrones View on Instagram #Litchfield National Park is a land shaped by water 💦 Over the millennia, the relentless flow has created a dramatic landscape of sheer escarpments and deep gorges, not to mention some of the most inviting swimming spots in the Top End...including stunning Florence Falls! Take a couple of days to explore the 1,500 square kilometre park, studded with hiking trails, gushing cascades and croc-free waterholes - there's plenty of see! Located just 90 minutes' south of #Darwin, many of the park's freshwater swimming holes have now re-opened for the dry season and almost all are accessible by conventional two-wheel drive vehicle. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @robmulally! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd View on Instagram When the light is just right! 💜 Massive geological forces created the towering red walls of Ormiston Gorge and Pound, located within the West MacDonnell National Park, 135 kilometres west of #AliceSprings. The best way to describe the ‘Pound’ is as a huge amphitheatre surrounded by hills and ridges 🙌 The 7 kilometre long Pound walk takes you on a full circuit from the visitor centre across the rocky slopes, onto the flat floor of the pound and returns along the gorge via the main waterhole. Whether you're looking for just a day walk or are hiking the more challenging Larapinta Trail, we guarantee this spectacular trail will take your breath away! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @dubstamatic. #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT View on Instagram The lovely @MargotRobbie ventured to the Red Centre this week for the ultimate outback adventure, including a visit to #Uluru and a trip on #TheGhan 🙌 According to Margot, there's no need for filters - “it's just that beautiful out here". We can't argue with that! #NTaustralia #SeeAustralia View on Instagram Flying high over ancient #Kakadu National Park ✨ 🚁 From this spectacular vantage point you’ll see the most astonishing side of @Australia's largest national park... ancient sandstone plateaus, sheer escarpments, endless savannah forest, white sand beaches, winding rivers and expanses of floodplains. One of Kakadu's most impressive waterfalls, Jim Jim Falls is a sight to behold year round whether it's in full flow or reduced to a trickle during the drier months (April-September). With the dry season having just begun in the Top End, ground access will soon be available again for travellers wanting to visit these falls. Tip: You'll need a four-wheel drive to get to Jim Jim! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @jasoncharleshill. #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd #SeeKakadu View on Instagram We've hit the road... next stop: an epic Red Centre adventure 🙌 🚗 Central @Australia was made for road-trips with a number of exciting drive routes linking #AliceSprings, #Uluru, #KingsCanyon and the West MacDonnell Ranges. Whether you've hired a car or brought your own, happy to stay on sealed roads or keen to try a dirt track; there's something for everyone in the Aussie outback. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @beaumicheli! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT View on Instagram Surrounded by an exotic landscape and a profusion of wildlife, Bamurru Plains offers the ultimate bush experience. This @wildbushluxury safari lodge has exclusive access to 300 km² of floodplains and savannah woodland on the Mary River, on the edge of #Kakadu National Park. There's only 10 safari-style bungalows and each suite overlooks the floodplain 🙌 With mesh walls on three sides you can hear and see the wildlife and wilderness around you. Their activities are just as unique - you can watch as hundreds of birds take flight from around the infinity-edge pool, spot saltwater crocodiles as you skim across floodplains by airboat or search for buffalo and wallabies on an open top safari drive. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @katienanton! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd View on Instagram Beat the Monday blues with a visit to Southern Rockhole in Nitmiluk (#Katherine) Gorge! This glorious waterfall only flows for a limited time during the year... talk about exclusive! The rockhole can be reached by an 8 kilometre (return) walk from the Nitmiluk Visitor Centre, along the Windolf trail (via Yambi walk). If you're not keen on walking, you can choose to swap the hike for a ferry ride, which brings you within 150 metres of the swimming hole and waterfall.
