The 6km Rim Walk is one of the most famous walks in the Red Centre and relatively easy once you make it to the top. The circuit walk traces the rim of the canyon for much of the hike before descending into the lush 'Garden of Eden' and back up to the top again 🙌 Located in Watarrka National Park, roughly halfway between #Uluru and #AliceSprings, Kings Canyon is one of many stops along the iconic Red Centre Way drive route. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @ro_mytravels! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNTView on Instagram We hate to be devil's advocate, @mitch.toft, but we don't think you're going to move it! The #DevilsMarbles (#KarluKarlu) were formed from an upsurge of molten rock that cooled and became solid beneath a layer of sandstone. Over millions of years the hardened granite cracked and water broke down the sandstone and then the granite. As a result, rounded granite boulders perched on top of each other have been revealed 🙌 This 1,802 hectare reserve extends along both sides of the Stuart Highway and is roughly 400 kilometres north of #AliceSprings. You can thank us later for the geology lesson 😜 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Mitch 👍 #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNTView on Instagram Let us set the scene for you... a spectacular, 360-degree view of wetlands stretching endlessly out to the horizon and the stone country of Arnhem Land all bathed in the rich afternoon glow. Yep, we're talking about the lookout at Ubirr, #Kakadu National Park's most famous spot for sunset 🙌 As the sun begins to dip, the selfies start to slow and the crowd finds a perch to watch nature’s light show in awe. There ain't no #sunset like a Territory sunset, hey @_aswewander! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Luke and Jess 👍 #SeeAustralia #SeeKakaduView on Instagram When the scenes underwater are just as stunning as the one's above the surface! @cleocohen recently stopped by Bitter Springs, one of the most magical swimming spots in #TourismTopEnd! Hidden amongst palms and pandanas trees, this natural thermal pool is known for its ridiculously clear water and constant temperature of 32 degrees celsius. This little oasis is tucked away in the small township of Mataranka, an hour south of #Katherine and four hours’ south of #Darwin. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Cleo! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEndView on Instagram Row, row, row your boat... to relaxation! Welcome to @lorellaspringswildernesspark, a million acre coastal wilderness sanctuary in the Gulf of Carpentaria. Historical sites, aboriginal culture, swimming holes, gorges and the spectacular Lost City rock formations are just some of the features that make this family-owned cattle station a must-do. Base yourself at the homestead where you can take your pick of various accommodation options, grab a meal at the licensed bar and make the most of the magical hot springs just 200 metres away. Prepare to ditch your mobile - due to the park's remote location, there's no phone reception 👉 it's the ultimate place to disconnect! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @mitch.toft. #SeeAustraliaView on Instagram We're all about #vanlife in the Northern Territory and where better to hit the road than the Red Centre 🙌🚗 @elisehalina recently travelled around central @Australia, ticking #Uluru off her bucket list in style! While this magnificent monolith is pretty epic from any angle, nothing prepares you for those first views of Uluru up close - its sheer size is mesmerising! There's a heap of ways to explore the base... from hiring a bike with @outbackcycling to hopping on a segway tour with @ulurusegwaytours or on foot 👍 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Elise! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNTView on Instagram If you haven't been to the Red Centre before it might surprise you how many spectacular swimming spots there are around #AliceSprings. @mitch.toft recently stopped by Ellery Creek Big Hole, a stunning waterhole in the mighty Ellery Creek which cuts through a gorge in the West MacDonnell Ranges. Massive floods over thousands of years have carved out this permanent waterhole and unlocked some amazing geology. While the water is a bit chilly at this time of year, you can pull up a piece of sand with a packed lunch...the view isn't bad 😍 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Mitch! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNTView on Instagram Secret rock pools surrounded by tropical woodlands high above a waterfall... sounds terrible, right?! 😜 There are a number of popular swimming spots in #Litchfield National Park but not many people know about Tjaetaba Falls. These little known pools can be reached via the Greenant Creek Walk, a 2.7km return trail that follows the creek upstream before climbing steeply up to the lookout. If you’re visiting, please take note of signage - swimming isn’t allowed in the plunge pool at the base of the falls for cultural reasons. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @_aswewander! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEndView on Instagram Attention nature lovers! If you're visiting #Kakadu National Park, make sure you hop on a Yellow Water Cruise with @KakaduTourism. Get your camera ready - you can expect to see saltwater crocodiles, buffalo, wild horses and an abundance of birdlife 📸🐊 Cruises operate from sunrise to sunset, winding their way through the distinct ecosystems of Yellow Water Billabong and tributaries of the South Alligator River. These spectacular wetlands are just minutes from Cooinda Lodge; a great base to explore the southern region of the park.
