Or head out of town for a campfire dinner under the stars with renowned Aboriginal chef Bob Taylor from RT Tours Australia.

Eating around Uluru

Join Aboriginal guides on a tour around Uluru to discover the hunting and gathering ways of the local Anangu people. For the ultimate food and wine experience, don't miss the the Sounds of Silence or Tali Wiru dinners and indulge in gourmet delicacies under the stars in the shadow of the awe-inspiring Uluru.

Is this the ultimate #picnic spot? We think so! Hidden amongst palms and pandanus trees you'll find Bitter Springs, known for its ridiculously clear water and constant temperature of 32 degrees celsius. Bring along a tube or noodle and float with the current from one end to the other - there's ladders for easy access! These natural springs can be found just outside the small town of #Mataranka, an hour south of #Katherine or four hours from #Darwin.

Name a better way to kick off the #weekend, we'll wait! The @darwin_trailer_boat_club is #Darwin's oldest seaside club and perfectly positioned for watching a famous #TourismTopEnd tropical sunset. You can take a seat under the palms, order a cold drink and enjoy the show as the sun sinks below the horizon. If you're keen to taste test some locally sourced seafood dishes, this is a great spot to do it, with the bar and bistro open for lunch and dinner. We'll save you a seat 😉 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @radtimestogether! #SeeAustralia #RestaurantAustralia #TerritoryTaste
