This 18-day event combines warm outdoor festivities with a program rich with local, national and international talent. Relax in the festoon-lit surrounds of Festival Park with a tasty dinner or dance the night away to the hottest contemporary bands in the Festival’s iconic open-air big top, The Lighthouse. Hurry, there’s only a few days left! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @lmosscas! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd View on Instagram You're looking at the breathtaking views from the Rim Walk in #KingsCanyon, tucked away in Watarrka National Park 🙌 This 6 kilometre walk is a hiker's heaven with soaring sandstone cliffs, lush rock holes and striking domes (pictured) which somewhat resemble an ancient city. This 3-4 hour walk deserves a comfortable place to rest your head - camp under a billion star sky at @KingsCreekStation or step up the luxe and overnight in a spa room at @KingsCanyon Resort, soaking up outback views from the tub. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @melbourneiloveyou! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT View on Instagram The outback meets the tropics in #Katherine, a big country town three hours drive south of #Darwin on the mighty Katherine River. The jewel of this area is Nitmiluk (Katherine) Gorge, an ancient 13 gorge system that winds it way through the sandstone country. The walks around the gorge are one of the best ways to explore the region, ranging from easy 1-5 kilometre trails to serious full day and overnight hikes. They take you to stunning lookouts, secluded swimming holes, through palm filled valleys and over rocky escarpments. As @mooski_adventures discovered, the 8.4 kilometre return Windolf walk is well worth your while, offering sweeping views of the first gorge from Pat's Lookout, along with seasonal swimming at Southern Rockhole down below. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Amy and Sarah! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd #NitmilukNT #VisitKatherine View on Instagram Take to the air and witness the magic of #Kakadu National Park 🚁 The complexity of this diverse landscape becomes an epic eruption of colour and life as you fly over world-famous wetlands, mighty floodplains, and on to the ancient sandstone plateaus of Arnhem Land. Helicopter and fixed-wing flights operate in both wet and dry seasons, departing from #Darwin and within Kakadu (Cooinda and Jabiru). Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @jasoncharleshill! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd #SeeKakadu View on Instagram @KingsCreekStation's secluded Dreamtime Escarpment accommodation offers the ultimate #glamping experience 🙌 The perfect base for exploring the epic #KingsCanyon, these “tents” (if you can call them that) are kitted out with air-conditioning, ensuites and a private deck to enjoy a glass of red while you watch the sunset. Lounge in the communal pool area, sit back on the viewing platform with a book or roast marshmellows around the campfire at night. A self-cook bush inspired BBQ dinner and breakfast hamper are part of the package along with drinks to complement your meals. If you're keen to go exploring, the station also offers quad bike tours, scenic flights and cultural experiences. Kings Canyon and Watarrka National Park can be found roughly halfway between Alice Springs and Uluru.

Though nearby Mataranka Thermal Pool gets more hype, the lesser-known Bitter Springs has it all: tropical woodlands, a jungle-like stream and crystal clear water 💦🤩 Bring along a tube or noodle and float with the current from one end to the other - there's ladders for easy access! Just an hour south of #Katherine and moments from the small township of #Mataranka, this little piece of paradise is only a five minute walk from the car park. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @jade_elise_collins! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd #VisitKatherine View on Instagram It's easy to see why we keep falling more and more in love with #Litchfield National park every day! 💚 Wangi Falls is one of the most iconic waterfalls in the Top End. Less than a two hour drive from #Darwin, it's the ultimate place to cool down and get off the grid for a bit. For those of you who want to delve deeper into the lush tropical bush land, there are walking trails readily available 🍃 You can even finish off the day with a bite to eat at the conveniently located Wangi Falls Café, which is open all year round. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @iamsavi! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd View on Instagram Rain, hail or shine; #Uluru never ceases to amaze ❤️ With over 65 tours and experiences on offer at this iconic monolith, there's no shortage of ways to explore the spiritual heart of @Australia. From bush-walking and segways to helicopter rides, bush tucker and dining under the stars, there's something for everyone. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @erinoutdoors. #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT View on Instagram Here in the Top End, we're all about adventure! 🤠 Set amongst the #Litchfield region’s spectacular cathedral termite mounds and lush open floodplains, @MattWright's @TopEndSafariCamp offers the ultimate outback experience with a side of luxury 👌 Collected from #Darwin, you'll stop by Berry Springs for a dip in the turquoise waters before heading to the camp and settling in to your lotus bell tell, complete with a double bed, outdoor shower, wooden decks and solar power. Activities include an introduction to Matt's incredible 17 foot saltwater crocodile, Tripod, along with an airboat tour, helicopter flight and dinner under the stars.
