NT a big In­sta hit

Sunday Territorian - - NEWS - RAPHAELLA SAROUKOS

THE Ter­ri­tory’s nat­u­ral beauty has swept the globe as sev­eral out­back im­ages on In­sta­gram amass thou­sands of likes.

Tourism NT’s In­sta­gram page @AusOut­backNT has an­nounced the top 10 most liked Ter­ri­tory pic­tures of 2018 with the most pop­u­lar im­age re­ceiv­ing more than 8000 likes from users across the world.

A photo of Mataranka’s glis­ten­ing turquoise ther­mal pools, snapped by user @savvy_­so­cial topped the list with 8300 likes and count­ing.

The face be­hind @savvy_­so­cial Mel Brautigam was ex­cited to share im­ages of the NT’s stun­ning land­scape.

“The wet sea­son is a mag­i­cal time to ex­plore our back­yard as ev­ery­thing is lush and green and our wa­ter­holes are fresh,” she said.

“I was born in Dar­win and have lived in the Ter­ri­tory my whole life and am still left in awe when ex­plor­ing the NT.

“Ev­ery­one should be­come a Ter­ri­tory am­bas­sador and share the best of their ex­pe­ri­ences via the NTaus­tralia hash­tag.”

The Mataranka re­gion has been the cen­tre of at­ten­tion this year.

In July an im­age of Bit­ter Springs re­ceived more than one mil­lion likes af­ter the im­age was shared by In­sta­gram’s of­fi­cial ac­count.

Uluru was the most pho­tographed des­ti­na­tion with six of the 10 top im­ages show­cas­ing the land­mark.

Tourism and Cul­ture Min­is­ter Lau­ren Moss was in awe of the im­ages.

“The Ter­ri­tory’s spec­tac­u­lar nat­u­ral beauty is like nowhere else on the planet,” she said.

“From the Top End to the Red Cen­tre, the Ter­ri­tory of­fers an abun­dance of unique nat­u­ral land­scapes, at­trac­tions and ex­pe­ri­ences.”
