Golden hour at its finest ✨ Worn centimetre by centimetre from the red sandstone over the millennia, Nitmiluk (Katherine) Gorge snakes its way for 12km along the Arnhem Land Plateau on its way to the sea. Consisting of 13 separate gorges, the sheer rock extends more than 70 metres high in some places. Home to the Jawoyn people, aboriginal-owned @NitmilukTours offer a variety of ways to experience the history, rugged beauty and culture of this magnificent region - from boat cruises to canoeing and helicopter flights 🙌 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @jasoncharleshill! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd #NitmilukNT

Red sand, camels, #KataTjuta in the distance... yep, you're in Central @Australia! Gently coasting along the sand dunes some 10 feet off the ground, you'll have awesome views of the surrounding outback landscape 🐪 Home to over 60 camels, @UluruCamelTours is the largest camel farm in Australia and run daily sunrise, daytime and sunset tours at #Uluru 👍 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @_chloesmithphotography_! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

"Getting ready to watch yet another epic outback sunset, this time around in nature's very own infinity pool...life doesn't get much better than moments like these." @elisehalina recently stopped by Robin Falls, a pretty three-tiered waterfall located just outside #Litchfield National Park. If you're keen to escape the crowds, this gem is sure to be your new favourite spot! Roughly a 90 minute drive south of #Darwin, these falls are one of the many epic places to cool off in @TourismTopEnd - no wonder they call this region a water lovers' paradise 💙 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Elise! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd

Wandering through the sheer ochre-coloured domes of #KataTjuta (#TheOlgas), you'll be gobsmacked by their size and uniqueness. Some travellers find them even more mesmerising than #Uluru! You can choose from a number of walking trails that range from easy strolls to longer, more difficult tracks. The 2.6 kilometre (1.6 mile) return Walpa Gorge walk is one of the shorter options and takes you along a rocky path resembling something from Mars to a lush grove of spearwood.

Apparently almost 1 in 10 Aussies believe #EastArnhemLand is a mythical destination from a children’s book... far from it! Welcome to Lonely Beach - one of the NT's most Insta-worthy destinations 🙏 If you're keen to explore this mysterious region but not sure where to start, aboriginal-owned organisation @Lirrwi Tourism offer day and multi-day tours into the remote Yolngu Homelands. These guided tours depart from #Nhulunbuy (#Gove) and not only take you to some special locations but also immerse you in the rich aboriginal culture.  Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @iamsavi! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd #ArnhemLand

Experience the breathtaking feeling of floating silently above the outback as the sun slowly rises over the desert on this once-in-a-lifetime ballooning adventure 🙌 Journey to the launch site with @outback_ballooning in the cool pre-dawn darkness and begin the ascent just as the morning light begins to illuminate the rugged MacDonnell Ranges. Early morning flights operate year round and are one of the best ways to view the vast landscape surrounding #AliceSprings. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @stanmoniz! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

Impressive from the bottom but breathtaking from the top, this is a hike with a difference. Wander up the rocky track to the top of Gunlom Falls and be rewarded with spectacular plunge pools that have been billed as nature's finest infinity pool. Complete with epic vistas over #Kakadu National Park, you're guaranteed Instaworthy shots aplenty 👌 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @all.about.adventure! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd

What surprises people most when they first visit #Uluru, you ask? It's much, much bigger than you think! It's 348 metres high and just over 10 kilometres to walk around 🙌 But that's just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. Most of the rock is underground – it's estimated it extends 2.5 kilometres below ground level! The Base Walk is without a doubt the best way to explore this iconic rock up close 👉 it's been divided into six sections - you can choose to do just one or the whole loop! Following the footsteps of Aboriginal ancestors, you'll get to see the rock from all sides, discover ancient cave paintings and get a handle on the scale and variety of the monolith. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @ditabrenna! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

Twinkle, twinkle little star... how magical do the stars look at Edith Falls (Leliyn)?! 🎶🌟 We're used to seeing the upper rock pools in the daytime, but in our opinion, they look just as spectacular under a dreamy night sky. With very little light pollution in most parts of the NT, it's one of the best places in @Australia to view the stars in all their glory. If you've pitched your tent in the nearby camp ground, make sure you stick your head out and take a look 👀 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @mdfletch!  #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd
