You can't visit #Kakadu National Park without seeing one of its most famous cascades, Twin Falls 😍 The falls really thunder in the wet season roughly between December and May when the only way you can see them is on a scenic flight, but during the drier months (mid-year) you can rock-hop your way across super-sized boulders to the plunge pool at the base of the falls.

As you can see, epic sunsets aren't just limited to @TourismTopEnd... @visitcentralaus also knows how to put on a show! This beauty was captured a couple of days ago in #AliceSprings from ANZAC Hill, one of the best vantage points in town. With awesome views of the East and West MacDonnell Ranges and the surrounding area, it's a must-stop when visiting the unofficial capital of the outback.

We've shown you water running down the sides of #Uluru, but today we're taking it to a whole new level with waterfalls at #KataTjuta (#TheOlgas)! One of our local tour guides, @garystevensyn1, has been waiting 18 months to capture this incredible sight at Walpa Gorge and finally got to experience it recently 😍 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Gary! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

G'day from the spiritual heart of @Australia 👋 As far as views go, #Uluru at sunset is pretty hard to beat, hey @j.a.y_daley! If you're visiting this Red Centre icon, we highly recommend heading out to one of the viewing platforms to watch sunrise and sunset - the colours are different everyday 😍 There's also plenty of activities to fill the daytime hours... you can hire a bike and cycle around the base of the rock with @outbackcycling, hop on a camel ride with @ulurucameltours, enjoy a scenic flight with @professional_helicopters, join a dot painting workshop with @marukuarts or head out on a guided tour with @seitoutbackaustralia 👍 The list is endless... Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Jay! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

#Litchfield National Park's Wangi Falls in all its wet season glory 💦 The fluorescent green landscape, roaring waterfalls and cool mist on your face is an experience only visitors over the tropical summer months can get. But don't take our word for it - see it for yourself! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @savvy_social. #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd

"All abooooard!" You can explore the outback in style with @pyndan_camel_tracks and get to know these quirky characters on a one hour tour just outside of #AliceSprings 🐪 Sit back and admire the view as these gentle giants take you through a beautiful valley, surrounded by mountain ranges. Many travellers are quite surprised by how relaxing a ride can be! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Julia and Marcus! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

"Our land has a big story. Sometimes we tell a little bit at a time. Come and hear our stories, see our land. A little bit might stay in your hearts. If you want more, you come back." Jacob Nayinggul - Manilakarr clan. ✨ #Kakadu National Park's iconic Jim Jim Falls couldn't look more different in the wet season! If you've ventured to the base of the falls in the drier months when it's just a trickle, we'd suggest returning and seeing Jim Jim at its tropical summer best from the air 💦 Look at all that water! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @territorymama! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd #SeeKakadu

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
