FLY FREE TO THE OUTBACK
Isolated swimming holes, impressive gorges and incredible rock formations are all part of the Red Centre's unique and ancient landscape. The West MacDonnell Ranges are filled with many gems, and Ormiston Gorge has to be one of its brightest 🙌 The soaring walls are a majestic sight, best appreciated from the permanent waterhole or Ghost Gum Lookout 👀 With a swimming hole, various walking tracks and a heap of wildlife, Ormiston Gorge is certainly must-do material! While in the area, you should also check out the likes of Serpentine, Glen Helen or Redbank Gorge. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @justine_jb! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT
Australia is one big bucket list of a country. There are the cosmopolitan cities of Sydney and Melbourne. There are seemingly endless postcard-perfect beaches. The islands. The reef. And then there’s “The Outback” — a massive stretch of wilderness, called the Northern Territory, that reaches from the jungles of the tropical north to the sandy deserts of the interior. This region is the most “iconic version of Australia, the stuff of childhood dreams.” It’s the land of giant red kangaroos and schoolbus-length crocs — an absolute must for any vagabond.
And the best part? Now, you can fly there for free thanks to Northern Territory’s latest travel deal.
Basically, the Territory’s tourism board is offering free flights within Australia to Darwin, Alice Springs, or Uluru — the giant red rock monolith pictured in the photo above — if you book a flight to Australia from the United States via one of their partner travel groups. That means you can get around the country for absolutely free. Caveats are that you’ll need to book this summer and fly before the end of the year. Still, this deal is a spectacular opportunity that’ll allow you to see more of Australia than just Sydney and the East Coast.
