@SeeKakadu serves up such spectacular sunsets 😍 @emmaphotoaus witnessed these dreamy colours over Yellow Water Billabong in the heart of the World Heritage listed National Park. Hop on a tour of the wetlands with @KakaduTourism where you'll discover a variety of wildlife and an ever changing landscape. You'll need at least a few days to explore the region, and stay at nearby Cooinda Lodge to make sure you don't miss a stunning show like this 🙌 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Emma! #SeeAustralia #SeeKakadu #DoKakadu

The balcony views at Ayers Rock (#Uluru) Campground are pretty bloody good, hey @jordaaaan_! Located 15 kilometres from the iconic ochre-coloured monolith, the campground not only provides a billion star experience, it also offers spots to pitch your tent and park your motorhome or campervan. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Jordan! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

We're coming to you from Edith Falls (Leliyn) at first light 🙌 When it comes to sweet swimming spots, you're certainly spoilt for choice in this part of the Jawoyn-owned Nitmiluk National Park. Located only 40 minutes' drive from the town of #Katherine, the falls are a nature lover's paradise with an upper and lower pool, along with a number of walking trails. There's a kiosk on site and a grassy camp ground if you're keen to stick around and explore more 👍 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @cleocohen!  #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd

Start the day on a high in the West MacDonnell Ranges 🚁 @elisecook recently hopped on a #sunrise scenic helicopter flight at Glen Helen Gorge, soaring over Mount Sonder, Ormiston Gorge and the spectacular mountain ridge lines. Surrounded by the majestic MacDonnell Ranges, @GlenHelenLodge is the ultimate base with easy day-trip access to the whole West MacDonnell National Park.  Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Elise! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

@marioholzheu recently found "his favourite spot in the Northern Territory" while exploring #Kakadu National Park - Maguk Gorge! This lesser known park attraction is home to an emerald plunge pool screened by pandanus palms and surrounded by some of the oldest rocks in the world. While most people take the 1 kilometre trail to the main bottom pool, you can choose to climb above the falls where you'll find a series of smaller plunge pools with crystal clear water and amazing views.

The #DevilsMarbles are one of the most impressive places in the world to stargaze. With no artificial light in the Aussie outback to interfere, the night skies are unbelievably bright 🌟 These large granite boulder are located an hour south of #TennantCreek in the traditional country of the Warumungu, Kaytetye, Alyawarra and Warlpiri people They call the Devils Marbles 'Karlu Karlu', which literally translates as ‘round boulders'. The only accommodation in the conservation reserve is a simple camping area with fireplaces - campers should be well equipped and carry their own fuel and water. Alternatively, there's a small hotel nine kilometres down the road 👍 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @melissafindley! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

Glow and behold.... the stunning sandstone walls at Standley Chasm are lit up an hour either side of noon by the reflecting sunlight, creating a breathtaking display of rich colour 🙌 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. Located just 40 minutes from #AliceSprings, it's one of the many stops along the West MacDonnell Ranges - central @australia’s adventure mecca.

Ever wanted to learn about traditional aboriginal lifestyle: camping on the beach, hearing about cultural stories and traditional art, trying your hand at spear fishing and crab hunting? Then it's time to head to #ArnhemLand. Based on Yolngu homelands, @Lirrwi Tourism offers a choice of day and week-long itineraries during the Australian winter months - some of these trips even include a visit to this unbelievable location, Lonely Beach 😍 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @iamsavi! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd

#Litchfield National Park is a land shaped by water 💦 Over the millennia, the relentless flow has created a dramatic landscape of sheer escarpments and deep gorges, not to mention some of the most inviting swimming spots in the Top End - including stunning Florence Falls. Take a couple of days to explore the 1,500 square kilometre park, studded with hiking trails, gushing cascades and croc-free waterholes - there's plenty of explore! There are several major freshwater swimming holes fed by beautiful waterfalls, most of which are open for swimming and almost all accessible by conventional 2WD vehicles. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @carmenhuter! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd
