As well as markets, crocodiles and cruises, you'll find strong Aboriginal culture and a number of national parks right on your door step. Perched on a harbour five times the size of Sydney's and home to some of @Australia's most instagrammable sunsets, Darwin is the ultimate tropical escape 🙌 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @sparetimelife! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEndView on Instagram It’s not hard to see why Nitmiluk (#Katherine) Gorge is a Top End must do! The gorge-ous views and breathtaking walking tracks will impress even the most adventurous of hearts, or maybe you’ll choose to take it easy on a boat cruise with @NitmilukTours. Open year round, the region is home to some of the most stunning gorge scenery in the NT. Consisting of 13 separate gorges, this maze of waterways stretches for 12 kilometres and extends more than 70 metres high. Our tip: check out Baruwei lookout at sunrise or sunset! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @carissaspataro. #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd #NitmilukNTView on Instagram The iconic red rock, #Uluru has to be seen to be believed. At sunrise and sunset it’s radiance is unlike anything else, surrounded by the dreamy colours of the desert sky. There are a number of experiences that take you right up close, including the 10.6 kilometre Base Walk. As the name suggests, the trail circles the entire base of this ochre-coloured monolith and takes roughly 3.5 hours if you do the whole thing. If you're not keen on doing it on foot, you can hire a bike from @outbackcycling or join a segway tour with @ulurusegwaytours. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @haililorensalt! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT #SeeUluruView on Instagram We're coming to you from Wangi Falls where it's wet, wild and wonderful! With a stunning cliff face, an emerald-toned plunge pool and a cafe on-site, there's every reason to sit back and enjoy your surroundings. #Litchfield National Park may be a fraction of the size of Kakadu, but when it comes to adventure opportunities, this national park has it in spades! While the falls are currently closed for swimming due to flooding, this impressive sight is still well worth a visit over the tropical summer. However, if you're keen for a dip within the park, Florence Falls and Buley Rockhole are open for swimming 👌💦 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @mattyparry96! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEndView on Instagram Sending you a postcard from paradise, also known as #EastArnhemLand 🍃 This is Lonely Beach, a very beautiful (and real!) place that you can explore on a tour with aboriginal-owned organisation @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 does things 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, @haylsa! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEndView 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 in fact 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, @mwjhvisuals! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNTView on Instagram Warning: You may never want your holiday to end at @skycitydarwin 🌴 Nestled on 30 acres of tropical gardens fringed by the crystal blue Arafura Sea, Skycity's centrally located resort offers stunning accommodation and dining options.

Meet you at the swim-up bar 😉 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @jonesaroundtheworld. #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEndView on Instagram By gorge, you've done it Glen Helen 🤩 @jaydidphoto snapped this stunning shot at #sunrise, describing the landscape in the Red Centre as “mind-boggling to comprehend." A 1.5 hour drive from #AliceSprings, @glenhelenlodge is the ultimate base for exploring the West MacDonnell Ranges and is located just a few minutes' walk from this beautiful gorge. The lodge offers various accommodation options, along with a restaurant and bar. You'll also find Ormiston Gorge, Redbank Gorge, the Ochre Pits and Ellery Creek Big Hole all within easy driving distance. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Jay! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNTView on Instagram There's no shortage of wonderful waterfalls in #Kakadu National Park, but as locals will tell you, the best spot to visit during the tropical summer is Motor Car Falls. Surrounded by monsoon forest, @surrealdigitalphotography said he had a "beautiful day" swimming here - it's not hard to see why! With water cascading into the gorgeous emerald plunge pool encircled by high cliffs, you'll be bowled over by its beauty. The one hour walk to the falls means its often overlooked by those attracted to better known and easier to access waterfalls in the park, so it has become a favourite among travellers willing to explore a little further. Please note: The Yurmikmik carpark is currently only accessible via four-wheel drive vehicle.
