Gotta love camping with mates in the #RedCentreNT! Admire the colours of the desert as the sun goes down, then chat by the campfire with a blanket of starry skies overhead. Thanks for the pic, @kateemma!
When a mob of mountain bikers visited Alice Springs for a #RedCentreNT adventure, they packed their trip with camels, beers, dingoes, sunrises, sunsets, swimming holes, racing, crashing, coffees, chaos and a whole tonne of great singletrack. Sounds like a pretty awesome week! Thanks for the video, @flow_mtb 🚲
And they're off! Experience a day at the races #RedCentreNT style at the Uluru Camel Cup! This quirky outback racing carnival includes food, entertainment, and fashions on the field, but there's not a horse in sight - instead, jockeys race camels down a red, dusty track! 📷: @ulurucameltours
The #RedCentreNT landscape shimmers with an incredible sense of freedom and possibility. The vibrant red sand and vivid blue skies come alive in the golden light of the late afternoon. Thanks for the beautiful photo, @claireeryan!
The persistence of nature in the #RedCentreNT is pretty amazing. This enormous, 33 metre tall ghost gum tree is over 300 years old, and is believed to be the oldest of its kind. Thanks for the great pic, @captnsnoopy!
You'll be amazed by how bright the stars look on a clear #RedCentreNT night. Learn to navigate the constellations of the outback skies, discover delicious desert bush tucker, or just enjoy the spectacular atmosphere of the @earth_sanctuary in Alice Springs. Thanks for the pic, @matjoez!
As the last colours of the day fade and night falls over the mysterious Devils Marbles, a tranquil beauty settles across the incredible #RedCentreNT landscape. Also known as Karlu Karlu, many of these enormous boulders balance precariously on top of each other, seemingly defying gravity. Thanks for the stunning photo, @phillipnelsonphotography!
After an adventurous, sometimes challenging walk through the Valley of the Winds, you'll want to pause to absorb every little bit of this spectacular view of Kata Tjuta in the #RedCentreNT! Thanks for the pic, @joonasnilp.
Uluru, the spiritual heart of Australia, has been around for a mind-bowing 600 million years. Although the Anangu people have cared for the land around Uluru for 10,000 of those years, Uluru only became known to European explorers a mere 145 years ago. Such ancient, mysterious beauty in the #RedCentreNT. Thanks for the photo, @doyoutravel!
Oh Friday, you understand me. 😍 That feeling when you're as happy to see the weekend as Madeleine and Sebastian are to see each other! These cuddling cuties live at @thekangaroosanctuary in Alice Springs, a beautiful home for orphaned baby kangaroos in the #RedCentreNT.
Tranquil natural beauty is never far away in the #RedCentreNT! Trephina Gorge with its sheer quartzite cliffs and sandy river bed lined with river red gums is just over an hour from Alice Springs. It's a great place for camping, bushwalking, and enjoying the serenity. Thanks for the pic, @sbitar54!
There's something so incredible about the vibrant colours of a #RedCentreNT sunset. These dreamy, balmy evenings will stay with you forever. Thanks for the gorgeous pic, @travelfordifferenceblog!
Rainbow Valley is home to one of the most striking geological features in the #RedCentreNT. This orange and golden sandstone formation (known as 'Wurre' by the Southern Arrernte people) is an incredible 350 million years old, and it's only 75km south of Alice Springs. Thanks for the gorgeous photo, @louisedentonphotography!
Riding a motorbike through the #RedCentreNT gives you the most exhilarating sense of freedom. Add that to the awe and wonder of seeing the ancient, breathtaking domes of Kata Tjuta, and you're in for a pretty unforgettable experience. Thanks for the awesome photo, @melissafindley! @UluruMotorCycleTours
Now this is desert glamping at its finest! 😍 These beautiful boutique tents are 15 minutes away from Alice Springs, nestled amongst the majestic MacDonnell Ranges in the #RedCentreNT. Spend your evenings stargazing then jump into a warm bed at Squeaky Windmill B&B. Thanks to @jewelszee for the great tip and gorgeous photo!
After admiring the soaring views across the #RedCentreNT from the top of @kingscanyon, descend to the beautiful paradise known as the Garden of Eden. This lush desert oasis on the canyon floor is such a stunning contrast to the canyon's sheer, red sandstone walls. Thanks for the pic, @nanni_be!
In the #RedCentreNT, getting off the beaten track and exploring is a reward in itself. Head 85km east of Alice Springs to John Hayes Rockhole, where river red gums and red ochre escarpments keep watch over a picturesque chain of waterholes. Thanks for the awesome pic, @captaincasss!
As the midday sunlight cascades down the 80m high walls of Standley Chasm in the #RedCentreNT, the sandstone takes on a vibrant, fiery glow. ☀️ The path that leads to the chasm is surprisingly lush, filled with cycads, ghost gums, and even little wildflowers sprouting out of rocky crevices. 🌴 Thanks for the pic, @nikkibee39!
Snow? White sand? Guess again! The #RedCentreNT is home to a 500km long chain of glistening white salt lakes. The largest, Lake Amadeus, contains over 600 million tonnes of salt! Thanks for the pic, @jenn_coyne.
All the photographs in the world can't prepare you for the amazing experience of visiting Uluru. The #RedCentreNT colours are brighter than you thought they'd be, the rock is bigger and more magnificent than you expected, and the whole place buzzes with the most incredible atmosphere imaginable. Thanks for capturing this beautiful moment, @travelfordifference.
The baby kangaroos of the #RedCentreNT can't wait to meet you! Little Milly is so keen to make a good first impression that she's even cleaning her tiny paws before her visitors arrive at @thekangaroosanctuary in Alice Springs. How could you not fall in love with such a cute little face!
Clear, sunny skies, red dirt trails and a bike - everything you need for a #RedCentreNT adventure! This beautiful, varied landscape is mountain bike heaven, and there's something for riders of all abilities. Thanks for the great pic, @nickbitar!
The serene, ancient beauty of the East MacDonnell Ranges in the #RedCentreNT is well worth a day trip from Alice Springs. How gorgeous are these reflections in the still water at Trephina Gorge? Thanks for the pic, @debrahoyt 😊
The dramatic colours of the beautiful #RedCentreNT landscape will take your breath away! Every day there's a magical moment when the late afternoon sun casts a fiery glow on the West MacDonnell Ranges. Thanks for the stunning photo, @julie_fletcher_photography_!
Don't be fooled by Fooluru! Mt Conner earned this nickname because so many people travelling through the #RedCentreNT mistake it for Uluru. Take a closer look, and you'll see that Mt Conner has a very distinctive flat top. But just like Uluru, it puts on a pretty spectacular show at sunset! Thanks for the pic, @seitoutbackaustralia 😊
See the magnificent #RedCentreNT stretch out before you on the Larapinta Trail as you trek through the West MacDonnell Ranges, along ridges and through gorges. It's divided into 12 sections, although some adventurous souls tackle all 223km! Thanks for the amazing pic, @jody_bloomer!
Kata Tjuta is not as well known as its nearby famous sibling Uluru, but this #RedCentreNT rock formation is just as spectacular in its own way. The tallest of Kata Tjuta's 36 domes is 546 metres high - nearly 200 metres taller than Uluru. Thanks for the pic, @riley_kate_!
Red dirt, mesmerising skies and incredible rock formations: must be another #RedCentreNT sunset! How gorgeous is this shot of the Devils Marbles (Karlu Karlu) by @jenn_coyne? 😍 Sunset is the perfect time to visit this geological marvel.
It's a good day when the drive is as good as the destination. If you prefer a dusty 4WD & a swag under the stars over a tour bus and a hotel, Ruby Gap in the #RedCentreNT is the place for you! Make sure you visit the other treasures of the East MacDonnell Ranges on your way. Thanks for the great pic, @meanderingaroundaustralia!
Bucket list moments are best shared with someone you love!
