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

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

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. ​Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @iamsavi! ​#SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd

The essential NT road-trip: #AliceSprings to the #DevilsMarbles (#KarluKarlu) 🙌 A drive through our country’s heart is one every Australian should make! ​The Devils Marbles are piles of huge, and some not so huge, red and orange-coloured granite boulders, which look as though they’ve been dropped in the middle of the outback. In 1870, while surveying for the Overland Telegraph line, surveyor John Ross named the boulders the “Devils Marbles”, stating “This is the Devil’s country; he’s even emptied his bag of marbles around the place!” They're known as Karlu Karlu to the traditional owners – the Warumungu, Kaytetye, Alyawarra and Warlpiri people, which translates to 'round boulders'. These formations come into their own at sunrise and sunset, when the soft light illuminates the changing colours of the granite, transforming them from stunning pinks to bright reds. Stay overnight at the bush campground or alternatively, you can find Devils Marbles Hotel 8 kilometres down the road. ​Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @ettas_travels! ​#SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

Great swimming spots are around every corner in #Litchfield National Park and Florence Falls is no exception! 💦 This cascading twin waterfall provides the perfect plunge pool for a refreshing dip almost year round. From the lookout you can survey the surrounding location, while there are a number of walks that provide a different perspective of the area. Super easy to access, the park is only a 1.5 hour drive from #Darwin. Accommodation is available in the nearby small township of Batchelor along with a number of camping areas dotted throughout the park.

Nature enthusiasts everywhere, Yellow Water Billabong in #Kakadu National Park is calling your name! 💚 Take a cruise with @KakaduTourism and you'll instantly feel like you've stepped back in time. The sheer serenity is unlike anything else 🙌 The national park is a haven for wildlife with one third of @Australia’s bird species found in Kakadu. You'll also spot crocodiles in their natural habitat and buffalo on the floodplains, so keep your camera ready! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia @jonny.melon.  #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd #SeeKakadu #DoKakadu

Is there anything sweeter than a two for one deal? @seeseaimages captured this stunning shot of both #Uluru and #KataTjuta (#TheOlgas) on a scenic flight with @ayersrockhelicopters 🚁 Even if you've walked around @Australia's most famous natural landmarks, it's hard to fully appreciate their enormity until you've seen them from the air! Make sure to keep your camera close - as the sun sets over the outback landscape, these gigantic ochre-coloured rock formations will change colour before your very eyes 😍 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Craig. ​#SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

With views like this, it's not hard to see why #Darwin has definitely earned the right to say it has some of the most magical sunsets in @Australia! 🙌 @nath_lew captured this glorious snap at the @darwin_trailer_boat_club in Fannie Bay, just one of the many places to enjoy the tropics with a cool drink at sundown. Attention locals: where's your favourite spot to watch a Territory sunset? Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Nathan!  #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd

Located only 90 kilometres west of #AliceSprings, Ellery Creek Big Hole sits within the West MacDonnell National Park/Tjoritja, an adventure-filled area right on the doorstep of Australia's unofficial outback capital. The park stretches for 161 kilometres and is an incredible example of an ancient landscape sculptured over time by the climatic elements - so, expect to be wowed by the scenery! ​This pretty outback swimming hole is known for its high red cliffs, large waterhole and sandy creek surrounded by gums. ​While it's possible to take in much of the region on a day-trip, there are plenty of campgrounds if you're keen to stay longer, along with motel-style accommodation at nearby @glenhelenlodge. ​Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @jade_elise_collins! ​#SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT
