#KingsCanyon is one of the most popular locations to visit in the #RedCentreNT. Here you will find the Garden of Eden which is a permanent waterhole surrounded by lush plant life. Also explore the unusual weathered rock formations known as The Lost City! Photo by @melisahenderson
Another #RedCentreNT hidden gem, Bond Gap is on the Larapinta Trail about 6 km west of Simpsons Gap. The Woodland Trail loop, a return distance of 17 km, takes you through excellent examples of Mulga woodland. Thanks for the pic: @maxbrae
There's gold in them ther' hills. Or there was back in 1887. Arltunga was the #RedCentreNT 's first official town. When discovered, prospectors had to ride or walk, often pushing wheelbarrows, 600km from Oodnadatta. It is now a 110kms drive east from Alice Springs. Thanks for the great pic: @debrahoyt
Outback waterholes don't get much better than this beauty! 😍 Ormiston Gorge is one of the most beautiful spots in the West MacDonnell Ranges, 135km from Alice Springs. Spend the day here and enjoy the serenity! Thanks for the pic, @commongroundtravelsa
A view like this might have you imagining a tropical island, but guess again - it's the #RedCentreNT! 🌴 Red cabbage palms are native to Palm Valley; remnants of a time thousands of years ago when Central Australia was a far wetter place. Thanks for the pic, @usplusourerbgha
Kata Tjuta is a breathtaking rock formation - The ancient beauty of Kata Tjuta in the #RedCentreNT is so breathtaking that you'll want to take the time to appreciate it. Made up of 36 enormous red sandstone domes. The highest, Mt. Olga, stands 546 metres above the surrounding landscape. Thanks for the beautiful photo @thetravelalbum
This is one way to see Uluru. Kristal taking #RedCentreNT adventure to new heights. Stay tuned for more @kristalmargrie @elleschembri @danaschembrii #AdventureCapitalAUS experiences

Shhh, we've got a secret spot to share! 🙊 Some of the most beautiful spots in the #RedCentreNT are a little off the beaten track, so you can enjoy their tranquility as well as their beauty. Serpentine Gorge is 100km west of Alice Springs in the West MacDonnell Ranges and we recommend a 4WD for the last few kilometres of the journey. As well as linking up with the Larapinta Trail, it has some spectacular smaller walking trails of its own. Thanks for the beautiful pic, @matejalicious
The #RedCentreNT is full of ancient and fascinating places, like Corroboree Rock in the East MacDonnell Ranges. This impressive dolomite structure was formed a whopping 800 million years ago, and to this day remains culturally significant to the Eastern Arrernte people. Thanks for sharing, @traveloutbackaustralia!
142 million years ago, a comet crashed into the #RedCentreNT leaving behind an enormous crater now known as Gosse Bluff. Also called Tnorala by the Western Arrernte people, this fascinating site is regarded as one of the most significant impact craters in the world. Thanks for the awesome pic, @chrissylindorff!
The Red Centre Way is one of Australia's most iconic road trips! It's a journey that'll take you from Alice Springs to stunning waterholes and gorges, past magnificent mountains and Kings Canyon, across red sandy deserts all the way to Uluru, the spiritual heart of Australia. Mt Sonder is just one of many beautiful landmarks you'll see on your way through the #RedCentreNT. 📷: @traveloutbackaustralia
The magical moment when the colours of the #RedCentreNT skies fade into darkness and 50,000 coloured lights begin to glow. This is Bruce Munro's Field of Light at Uluru, a stunning art installation that's been extended until March 2018 by popular demand. It adds a whole new layer of mystery and beauty to this natural wonder. Thanks for the pic @key_sea
So much interest in Sebastian yesterday thanks to @Australia we thought we should give him some extra love. Here are a couple of his childhood photos from 2016 and 2017. You can see him @thekangaroosanctuary in #RedCentreNT
Look at that view!! A helicopter ride over Kings Canyon with @professional_helicopters is one of the most magical and unique ways to experience the #RedCentreNT!
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!
The Devils Marbles (Karlu Karlu) were gradually eroded into their current shapes over millions & millions of years. The red boulders continue to crack and erode even today, resulting in a fascinating, ever-changing #RedCentreNT landscape. Thanks for the pic: @tongy1970
John Hayes Rockhole in the Trephina Gorge Nature Park. A fabulous #RedCentreNT walking spot, 85 kms east of Alice Springs. This photo was taken from the Chain of Ponds walk. Thanks for the pic: @jody_bloomer
Some moments are so incredibly beautiful that you have to pause just to drink it all in. Kata Tjuta's mysterious, commanding presence and the quiet, still beauty of a #RedCentreNT sunset will stop you in your tracks. Thanks for the pic, @acnlana
Walpa Gorge can look like a scene from Mars, but rains give rise to this gentle stream. The Walpa Gorge walk will lead you between two of Kata Tjuta's largest domes. Look out for rare plants, and listen for the wind that gave the gorge its name - 'walpa' means 'windy' in Pitjantjatjara. Thanks for the #RedCentreNT pic, @angelabatty
Just couldn't resist reposting this image captured yesterday near Alice Springs. 3.8mm of rain in town. May not seem much but this is the #RedCentreNT Thanks for the pic @jayrayoz
Take a wander through Standley Chasm in the #RedCentreNT, and admire the steep, red sandstone walls. For an hour or so each side of noon, the sun lines up perfectly to send sunlight cascading into the chasm and give the red rock a warm glow. Thanks for the pic, @rose551021
This is why it's called the Red Centre. You really can feel it, and once you've experienced it you can never truly let it go. This particular red sand is near Mt Connor, about 100kms east of Uluru. #RedCentreNT Thanks for the pic @CarlyPhelps
Uluru at the heart of #RedCentreNT and the heart of Australia. 348metres high and about 10 kms around the base. It looks big close up but when seen from the air you can really appreciate its uniqueness within the landscape. Thanks for the pic @mariam___xo
The natural beauty of Trephina Gorge #RedCentreNT will take your breath away. Located in the East MacDonnell Ranges, it's a great place for camping, bushwalking and spotting wildlife, and the views are amazing! Blue skies, red rocks, sandy river beds, and water - sometimes! Thanks for the pic, @meyerhly
Kunjarra (The Pebbles), 11 kms north of Tennant Creek, is not as well know as #RedCentreNT neighbour Karlu Karlu (Devils Marbles) but definitely worth a visit. Sunset is the best time. The granite rocks glow orange and red then turn a deep purple. Thanks for the pic @nomadhej
The Kings Canyon Rim Walk is one of the most iconic and spectacular walks of the #RedCentreNT. The walk starts with a climb of 1000 steps, and then takes you on a 6km journey around the rim of Kings Canyon, offering truly epic views. Thanks for the pic, @chloeskafte
Easter Bunny spotted at Emily Gap in the #RedCentreNT ? No its a Black-footed Rock Wallaby. Whilst they are a threatened species, they are often seen by keen-eyed visitors in the gorges and scree slopes of the MacDonnell Ranges. Thanks for the pic @eternalgringo
Castle Rock and Chambers Pillar, two iconic rock formations in the #RedCentreNT, 160kms south of Alice Springs. Recorded by John MacDouall Stuart in April 1860 but formed from sandstone laid down over 350 million years ago Spectacular during sunrise and sunset when the rock glows orange. For an alternate view, consider visiting during the upcoming full moon. Thanks for the photo @outbackelitetours
Simpsons Gap is one of the most prominent gaps in the West MacDonnell Ranges. Located just 18 kilometres from Alice Springs the towering cliffs are awe inspiring. It features a permanent waterhole (no swimming allowed) and incredible opportunities to spot resident #RedCentreNT wildlife. At dawn and dusk look out for Black-footed Rock-wallabies as you enter the gap. Known as Rungutjirpa to the Arrernte Aboriginal people, Simpsons Gap was the mythological home of a group of giant goanna ancestors. Several dreaming trails and stories cross at this important spiritual site. Thanks for the pic #jan_e_can
