Visitors to the park will be able to walk on the famed red desert sands, take in the exact vegetation you’d see in a semi-desert environment (all introduced species have been removed), enjoy a spectacular show put on by the animal trainers and the legendary free-flying birds of Central Australia and learn a thing or two about what you’re looking at as you travel through the outback terrain. Located just 10 minutes' drive from the centre of town, it's definitely a must-do in the region 👍 #NTaustralia #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT View on Instagram #Darwin in the dry season... need we say more?! 😍 @jonesaroundtheworld captured this cracking #sunset from the pool at @MindilBeachResort where hotel guests have direct access to the beach 🌴 The city's iconic @mindilmarket is just a five minute walk from here, and is on every Thursday and Sunday evening from April till October. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Dave! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd View on Instagram Red sand, camels, #Uluru in the distance... yep, you're in central @Australia! Gently coasting along the sand dunes some 10 feet off the ground, you'll have amazing views of the surrounding outback landscape 🐪 Home to over 60 camels, @UluruCamelTours is the largest camel farm in Australia and run daily sunrise, daytime and sunset tours overlooking Uluru and #KataTjuta (#TheOlgas). Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @kyle_hunter! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT View on Instagram How are you spending #WorldBathingDay? If you're road-tripping through @TourismTopEnd, make sure you stop at #Katherine Hot Springs, an unexpected oasis just minutes from the main street 💙 These crystal clear pools are naturally spring-fed and shaded under a canopy of pandanus trees 🍃 Tip: If you visit early in the morning, you might just have the whole place to yourself! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @mitch.cox. #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd #VisitKatherine View on Instagram Let's just sit back and reflect! 🧡 Located in the spectacular West MacDonnell Ranges near #AliceSprings, Ormiston Gorge is an outback oasis home to a permanent freshwater waterhole and epic towering red walls 😍 While the water is a bit chilly at this time of the year, it's the perfect temperature for getting out on one of the many hiking trails in the area, including the Pound and Ghost Gum walks. Our tip: If you're not a hiking fan, hop on a scenic helicopter flight at @glenhelenlodge, only 10 minutes' drive away, and explore Ormiston from the air 🚁 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @jordhammond. #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT View on Instagram Welcome to #Kakadu National Park's best kept secret 😍 Located in the southern part of park, Moline Rockhole is a beautiful little waterfall and swimming hole not far off the main road (Kakadu Highway). It's not signposted and most people just drive past it when they are visiting the nearby waterfall Gunlom. You'll find the turnoff 5 kilometres after the Mary River ranger station, down a little dirt road - be aware you'll need a four-wheel drive vehicle to get in! This hidden gem is a 'special permit area' in which only a few select tour operators are allowed to access so you'll often have the place to yourselves. The water here is crystal clear so make sure you pack your snorkelling gear. You'll find many little fish and if you're lucky, a turtle or two swimming in the rockpool with you. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @goldiekatie_! #SeeAustralia #SeeKakadu #TourismTopEnd View on Instagram We're coming to you from picture-perfect #EastArnhemLand at sunrise 🌸 This is Lonely Beach, a very beautiful (and real!) place that you can explore on a tour with aboriginal-owned company @Lirrwi Tourism. They offer day and multi-day guided tours into the remote Yolngu Homelands, departing from #Nhulunbuy (#Gove) between April and October. You'll get to see how the world's oldest living culture still lives today - from traditional spear fishing to gathering of bush foods. East Arnhem Land is only a short flight from #Darwin or can be accessed via the Central Arnhem Road. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @melissafindley! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd #ArnhemLand View on Instagram We definitely don’t take for granted, or should we say ‘granite’ the fact that we have the unbelievable #DevilsMarbles in the Northern Territory. Karlu Karlu, as they’re called by the traditional owners, were formed naturally, slowly eroding over millions of years into their strange and sometimes gravity-defying shapes. Follow the walkways and find out via the information boards how the granite formations have withstood the forces of wind and rain, unlike the surrounding sandstone. These geological wonders are located just an hour drive from #TennantCreek. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @amyrcooper. #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT View on Instagram Romantic scene from the #Bachelor or just a regular morning at a Top End swimming spot? 🤔 @opeleye recently said “early morning hikes with @ktlou13 to private swimming holes are probably my favourite thing about driving around the national parks of northern Australia." 🙌 We can see why! Say g’day to the wildly photogenic Southern Rockhole in Nitmiluk National Park! We'd like to think that the NT has somehow found itself as @Australia's unofficial capital of natural plunge pools - a reminder that it's anything but dry and sparse 💦 While getting to the rockhole does require a bit of bush-bashing, the cool emerald water is your welcomed reward. It takes about 1.5 hours to hike here from the Nitmiluk Visitor Information Centre, but there’s a strong chance that you’ll have it all to yourself when you arrive 👌 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Jordan! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd #NitmilukNT View on Instagram Subscribe Sign up to receive the latest news, deals and travel information about the Northern Territory.
