Challenge yourself in the #RedCentreNT with a section of the Larapinta Trail - or even try all 223km of this world class hiking trail. This incredible journey will take you from Alice Springs across ridges, through gorges and river beds, and eventually lead you to Mount Sonder. Thanks for the pic, @lachlan_fox!
How spectacular are those glowing red walls! The moment the midday sun peeks into Standley Chasm in the #RedCentreNT is absolutely breathtaking. Thanks for the stunning photo, @susiereynolds66!

Storm clouds over Uluru brought some rainbows with them! 🌈 Every visit to this natural and cultural icon is incredible, but it's very special to see a rainbow over the Rock. Thanks for tagging #RedCentreNT, @redrockphotography.

Thanks for the pic, @felicitylee__!
Get a whole new perspective of the #RedCentreNT from the skies! Sometimes it's hard to get a sense of just how big the domes of Kata Tjuta are. Can you spot the tour bus? Look how tiny it looks in comparison to these ancient rock formations! Thanks for the pic, @ayersrockscenicflights.
Desert sunsets don't get much better than this, right @chatonenvoyage? The #RedCentreNT is especially beautiful in these moments when the bright blue skies of the day are painted over with the spectacular colours of sunset.
Although this area of the #RedCentreNT is called Karlu Karlu by the traditional owners, these enormous granite boulders got their English name because a Scottish explorer thought they looked like the Devil's Marbles, scattered around the valley. 📷: @solovantravels
What a view! Climbing Mt Sonder, the fourth-highest mountain in #NTAustralia, is a #RedCentreNT adventure that rewards you with jaw-dropping vistas like this one. Thanks for the pic, @darrylpiper81.
What an incredible explosion of colour at Uluru! The spectacular sunset and desert wildflowers show just how vibrant and colourful nature can be in the #RedCentreNT. Thanks for the brilliant photo, @kristiefogarassy!

Saddle up, it's time for the Alice Springs Camel Cup! This is no ordinary day at the races - replace thoroughbred horses with unpredictable camels, swap the grass for some desert dust, and add a whole lot of fun for one of the quirkiest events on the #RedCentreNT calendar. Feeling adventurous? You can even become a jockey for the day! 📷 : @lottymack
Just can't get enough of those spectacular #RedCentreNT sunsets! Whether you're exploring the lush Garden of Eden, marvelling at the soaring views of the Rim Walk, or admiring the George Gill Range from afar, Kings Canyon never disappoints. Thanks for the pic, @katefrahn!
After a big day of adventures through the #RedCentreNT with your mates, the best thing to do is relax by the campfire, enjoying the good company and beautiful sunset. Thanks for the pic, @dollbabyink!

Some hidden treasures of the #RedCentreNT are only found by those willing to get off the beaten track. Leave your 4WD at Ruby Gap and keep going on foot to reach this gem, Glen Annie Gorge. Thanks for the pic, @emmalissharp!

The ancient beauty of Kata Tjuta in the #RedCentreNT is so breathtaking that you'll want to take the time to appreciate it. (And catch your breath after that hike, let's be honest!) Thanks for the beautiful photo, @kristiefogarassy!

The Devils Marbles (Karlu Karlu) seem to defy gravity, balancing precariously on one another. These enormous granite boulders cast very unusual silhouettes at sunset when the vibrant #RedCentreNT colours fill the sky! Thanks for the photo, @susiereynolds66 👌
With views like this, it's easy to see why Glen Helen Gorge is a favourite destination in the West MacDonnell Ranges. Cool, refreshing water, spectacular red cliffs, abundant wildlife and delicious meals at the Glen Helen Homestead Lodge make this #RedCentreNT oasis unforgettable.
Aww! Milly the baby kangaroo doing the cutest little somersault you'll ever see! 😍 Joeys like Milly often lose their mothers on the roads of the #RedCentreNT, but they luckily many of them find a happy home at @thekangaroosanctuary in Alice Springs, where you can visit for a cuddle!

Arltunga, the #RedCentreNT's first European settlement, was once home to hundreds of people during the gold rushes of the 1880s. Now, it's a fascinating ghost town where you can explore abandoned mines and the ruins of the town, including a police station and gaol. Thanks for the pic, @debrahoyt!
Now there's something you don't see every day! In other parts of Australia, winter rain is common, but not here in the #RedCentreNT where most of our rain falls in summer. In wet weather, Uluru changes from its usual red-orange colour, to this gorgeous, moody hue. Thanks for the amazing photo, @ginger_route_photography!
