From dramatic cliffs and sandy beaches to pandanus-lined channels, this maze of waterways stretches for 12 kilometres and extends more than 70 metres high. @NitmilukTours offers a variety of ways to explore this magnificent area; including boat cruises, cultural tours, canoe hire and helicopter flights. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @michaelaborgg! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd #NitmilukNTView on Instagram Get access all areas and unparalleled panoramas with a scenic #helicopter flight over #KataTjuta (#TheOlgas) and its vast, magnificent surrounds 🙌 Choose your flight of fancy from a range of short, day-long and sunset tours... or start the day on a high and hop on a #sunrise tour as @benjamin_wood_photography did! Make sure you see it all while you're here by combining the beauty of Uluru and Kata Tjuta in one unforgettable flight 🚁 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Benjamin. #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNTView on Instagram #Netflix and chill, NT style 🙌 This sweet set-up was created by @elisecook who recently road-tripped from #Darwin to #AliceSprings. Following the trail blazed in the 1860's by the first explorers to successfully cross @Australia from north to south, you'll be driving past striking natural wonders, historic outback pubs and towns brimming with culture and activity. On your travels you’ll hit the Territory’s star attractions, including World Heritage-listed Uluru and Kata Tjuta, spectacular Nitmiluk (Katherine) Gorge and the waterfalls and waterholes of Litchfield National Park. As far as road-trips go, they don't get much better than this one! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Elise. #SeeAustraliaView on Instagram It's found on postcards and in paintings, and if the light is right when you visit, it takes your breath away... yep, we're talking about Ormiston Gorge. Out of all the gaps and gorges in the West MacDonnell Ranges, it has to be one of the most impressive 💛 Whilst the gorge is famous for its waterhole, one of the other very special things about this place is that it showcases the spectacular geology and landforms of the area. Ormiston, along with Ellery Creek Big Hole, is a popular spot for outback swimming, hiking and camping, and is located an easy hour and half drive west of #AliceSprings. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @iiiiiona! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNTView on Instagram Maguk Gorge, a secluded swimming spot which appears through a rocky gorge, seems too beautiful to be true. An hour or so south of Cooinda Lodge, Maguk Gorge requires a four-wheel drive to access, but once you're there it's just a one-kilometre walk to crystal clear pools and ancient rocky outcrops. As with much of #Kakadu National Park, if you visit from November to March, make sure you check with local authorities to see what's open. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @amani_hawa! #SeeAustralia #SeeKakadu #TourismTopEndView on Instagram Rise and shine, you don't want to miss sunrise at #Uluru! While the early morning start can be a bit of a struggle, we guarantee there's nowhere more peaceful to take in the first rays of the day. Seeing this ancient monolith at sunrise or sunset is the best way to see its magical colours transform. There are a number of tour options which take you to the key vantage points at the best times. @Seitoutbackaustralia, @aatkings and @exploreuluru offer various experiences...alternatively, there are other sites which provide a great view and can be accessed via your own transport. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @ashleydobson! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT #ExploreUluruView on Instagram Crystal clear thermal pools surrounded by paperbark and palm forest... in the middle of the outback?! The NT might have a reputation for being dry and sparse, but hidden amongst its landscapes are oases of emerald waterholes, warm springs and cascading falls. @gattizia recently stopped by #Mataranka Thermal Pool where the springs bubble up at 32 degrees to fill a semi-man made pool of perfectly turquoise water under a shady canopy of tropical woodlands 🙌 Located within Elsey National Park, you can find this magical spot an hour south of #Katherine and four hours south of #Darwin. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Fabiana! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEndView on Instagram Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve is a haven for wildlife, particularly a wide variety of birds. There are a handful of different walks to choose from, all of which allow you to really explore the wetland area... without getting your feet wet! Wander along the easy paths through shady forests of paperbark and stop at the various lookouts and viewing platforms for stunning views across the floodplains. The reserve is only a 45 minute drive from #Darwin and a great stop on the way to #Kakadu National Park. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @mellisa_hutton! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEndView on Instagram Twinkle, twinkle, little star... how bright you are in the Red Centre! Ellery Creek Big Hole, only an hours' drive from #AliceSprings, offers the perfect combo: epic scenery and a great spot for a dip!
