Fine dining under a star-tling outback sky with views of #Uluru and #KataTjuta (#TheOlgas)? ✨ Um, yes please! Tali Wiru, meaning 'beautiful dune' in local Anangu language, is an open-air restaurant that combines a world-class menu with a one-of-a-kind natural setting. When can you have this magical experience, you ask? It starts again next month and runs until October 🙌 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @jeffcolhoun. #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT #ExploreUluru

Oooh #Darwin, you've outdone yourself 💜 Our tropical capital is not only famous for its relaxed small-town feel, it's also well known for its multicultural food, outdoor markets and waterside attractions. Not to mention a warm holiday vibe year-round ☀️What more do you need, hey  @elleschembri! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Elle. #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd

When someone describes a place as "possibly one of the most secluded and beautiful waterfalls I've been too", you know it's time to book a trip! Southern Rockhole is one of Nitmiluk (#Katherine) Gorge's wet season treasures and a must-see if you're visiting over the tropical summer. Whether you choose to hike from the visitor centre or hop on the ferry to get here, you're sure to be in awe of this magnificent spot - and yes, it really is this colour 😍 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @macmichaelvalerie!  #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd #NitmilukNT #JawoynCountry

Summer waterfalls, #KingsCanyon style! If you've hiked the 6km Rim Walk, you'll know that this isn't the regular view you get looking across the canyon. Following decent rainfall in the Red Centre, @anika205 was lucky enough to catch these falls running into the Garden of Eden 💦 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Anika! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

"The night sky out in the Red Centre is something I’ll never forget! No light pollution for 100’s of kilometres means you can see the stars and milky way in all their glory!" We're pretty lucky here in the NT, hey @chaseolearyphoto 😍 With five (million) star views, the #DevilsMarbles (#KarluKarlu) are the ultimate road-trip stop along the Stuart Highway. Nothing beats kicking back around a fire, camping under a starry sky and waking up to watch these gigantic boulders change colours at sunrise.

Wow #MotherNature, you're on a roll in #Darwin at the moment! With more storms on the way over the next few days, locals and visitors alike can expect to see an electrifying show or two 👀⛈ Time to grab the popcorn... Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @litchfield_dreams! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd

Say hello to Bitter Springs, where the water is not only wonderfully warm but also ridiculously clear 💦 Set amongst palms and tropical woodlands, these natural turquoise pools can be found an hour south of #Katherine in Elsey National Park. Discovered by surveyors for the Overland Telegraph Line in the later part of the nineteenth century, Bitter Springs will soon become a highlight of your @TourismTopEnd adventure.

Okay, guys... clear your must do lists - we've found you a new number one! @skydiveuluru is guaranteed to set your pulse racing, combining the spectacular views of #Uluru, #KataTjuta (#TheOlgas) and the surrounding outback landscape with the rush of jumping out a plane. You can pick a daytime jump or head out at sunrise or sunset for the ultimate photo opportunity 👌 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @_alex.ander! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

Ready, steady... glow ☀️ As you can see, midday is one of the best times to visit Standley Chasm, 50 kilometres west of #AliceSprings. The stunning sandstone walls are lit up by the reflecting sunlight, creating a breathtaking display of rich colour an hour either side of noon. The easy 20 minute walk to the chasm takes you through a lush gully, dotted with ancient ferns and cycads that have survived in the shadow of the arid hills from a long-gone wetter age. There's a small kiosk near the carpark where you can grab a coffee and a bite to eat upon your return. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @merrancourtney!  #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT
