When they locate a trail of ants they lick them up with their short, sticky tongue - scientists calculate that Thorny Devil's might eat a thousand or more ants in a single meal 😮 The Desert Park currently have two on display in the Nocturnal House and the hatchlings will be rotated for public display. Located just 10 minutes' drive from the centre of #AliceSprings, the wildlife park is the ultimate place to learn more about the Red Centre's native flora and fauna. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Desert Park team! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNTView 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. @ninetofiveevasion 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 piece of paradise an hour south of #Katherine and four hours south of #Darwin. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Joel and Sarah! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEndView on Instagram Don't get us wrong, scenic flights over #Uluru are pretty epic, but check out this incredible view of #KataTjuta (#TheOlgas) from the air! 🚁 Roughly 35 kilometres west of #Uluru, the 36 domes that make up this other-worldly natural wonder sit shoulder to shoulder and form a spectacular and unique configuration of deep valleys and steep gorges spread over more than 20 kilometres (12.4 miles). Many parts of Kata Tjuta are either sacred or inaccessible, so a scenic flight is one of the best ways to see the whole formation and get a true understanding of its size 🙌 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @nomadiclio! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT #SeeUluruView 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 National Park just west of #AliceSprings, 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 park. The best way to appreciate the scenery of Ormiston Gorge and Pound is to follow one of the many marked walking tracks. There are a number of trails with varying levels of difficulty, ranging from 5 minutes to 3-4 hours. When you're ready for a break, head to the kiosk where you can grab lunch and a coffee! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @i2snap_pics. #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNTView on Instagram "Will you be my #Valentine?" Meet Marmalade... the owner of the world's CUTEST face! He lives at @thekangaroosanctuary where their main mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and release orphaned baby kangaroos back into the wild. Kangaroos who can’t be returned to their native habitat are released into the 188 acre property. If you'd like to meet Marmalade and his mates you can book a sunset tour of the Sanctuary, which is just a short drive from #AliceSprings in @visitcentralaus. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @kangaroosanctuary! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT #ValentinesDayView on Instagram Located about 60 kilometres from #Katherine in Nitmiluk National Park, Edith Falls (Leliyn) rewards those up for a hike. The main pool at the base of the falls is beautiful, but it’s also well worth hiking to the upper pool via the 2.6 kilometre Leliyn loop walk. It ticks all the boxes for Top End swimming heaven: a plunge pool you could swim in for hours; mesmerising rock formations and a scenic walking trail 🙌 Edith Falls has a grassy campground along with a small kiosk if you're keen to stay and explore the area, including the longer Sweetwater Pool hike. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @koojo! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEndView on Instagram Camping goals 🙌 #EastArnhemLand is a nature lovers' paradise with wild and untamed landscapes that have remained the same for centuries. @talesofavanwife shared this awesome shot of her sweet set-up at Little Bondi - one of the many stunning beaches within a relatively short driving distance from #Nhulunbuy (#Gove), the region's main township. Not far from Little Bondi (Baringura), you'll also find Turtle Beach (Ngumuy) and Macassan Beach (Garanhan). If you're planning a visit to Arnhem Land, make sure you look into travel permits with the Northern Land Council or the Dhimurru Aboriginal Corporation before your trip 👍 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Phoebe! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd #ArnhemLandView on Instagram Just your standard evening at Glen Helen Gorge 🌟 Set against a stunning outback vista of towering red cliffs, the permanent waterhole here is part of the Finke River - thought to be one of the oldest river systems in the world! With little to no light pollution in the area, you can pitch your tent in the nearby campground at @glenhelenlodge and see the #stars like never before. If you're not keen on camping, the lodge also has a number of hotel rooms with all of the creature comforts of home. It's the ultimate base for exploring the surrounding West MacDonnell Ranges with a restaurant and bar onsite. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @jaydidphoto! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNTView on Instagram Dreamy dusk scenes in the Top End 💜 Road-tripping through the NT, @elisecook said "there is something about being out here, immersed in the natural world around us, the red earth beneath our feet and the big Outback skies above us". We couldn't have said it better ourselves! The journey from #Darwin to #AliceSprings is easily one of @Australia's most exciting adventures bringing together a world of ancient landscapes, aboriginal culture and endless skies. From the red desert sands of #Uluru, to World Heritage listed #Kakadu National Park and the magnificent Nitmiluk (#Katherine) Gorge, the diversity of the NT will astound you 🙌 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Elise! #SeeAustraliaView on Instagram Keep in touchSign up to receive the latest news, deals and travel information about the Northern Territory.
