Lasting for sometimes hours at a time, breathtaking lightning shows have begun thundering across #Kakadu National Park in what is known as Lightning Season. Six seasons are recognised in the region, based on thousands of years of Aboriginal knowledge. Kunumeleng is the pre-monsoon storm season which spans from mid-October to late December, but can last from a few weeks to several months. The lookout at Ubirr is famous for its sunsets but it's also one of the best places to watch the storms over the stone country. Currently open from 2pm-sunset, you can wander along the 1 kilometre circuit walk past various aboriginal rock art displays before making your way up to the viewpoint. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @camblakephotography!

Over the past 12 months, we've flown more than 200,000km across Australia. Along the way, we have enjoyed many, many, spectacular scenic flights - the 12 Apostles, Uluru and Bungle Bungles are always a highlight. We also love to take our guests on some lesser-known (but equally magnificent) scenic flights … over the next week we'll share a few of our favourites with you. 📷: @ewenbell#sharingourpassion#remoteaustralia#uluru@exploreuluru

How can Trump be such a Boner and a Racist? Would you have sex with a Republican? Would you have sex with a Racist? If someone tells you they are a Republican do you want to have their baby? Trump has ordered a U-Boat blockade of all California ports and targeted San Francisco and Los Angeles with V-1 vengeance rockets. San Francisco is our Lebensraum. Once California is cleansed we will settle good Norwegian Aryan breeding stock. General Ripper and I have everything under control. My Chief of Staff, Bat Guano, is locked in the Lincoln Bedroom. Slave Auction Theme Night The White House. I wouldn’t screw KellyAnne Conway with my Daddy’s Dick. Donald Trump, “The Lincoln Bedroom has not been changed into a Masterbatorium” Siri, short for Syracuse Sicily, told me last night that if she got the chance she would use Trump’s sock drawer as a cat box...repeatedly. Trump Supporters are Imbeciles and Morons, the lower percentile Dunning Kruger Effect test subjects, so Dumb they don’t know they are half wits, impossible to argue with because frankly you are not Dumb Fuck Whisperer.
Time is short Adolph...You Racist piece of filth. I don’t know how Nike will make it without the middle aged Racist Market. Choose the righteous path. Trump is an Adulterous Serial Liar, a Blatant Racist, a Money Launderer that is serving Russia. Serve him and you are Morally Bankrupt, you are vile, your friends will say you are not worthy of their friendship and they will be right...you are evil. I do not think Trump Supporters are decent human beings. Trump has proven himself a Blatant Racist over the last year. Continued Support of this Adulterous Lying Racist Russia Supporter illustrates that his Supporters are just as Morally Bankrupt & Vile as he is. Trump is attempting to lure the Resistance Collaborator into a large catch and release trap set in the Lincoln Bedroom...baited with Tillamook White Cheddar Cheese, Charcuterie, California Sonoma County Pinot Noir and a Baguette from the Acme Bakery Company San Francisco.

The Seven Sisters Creation Story is of great significance to the Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara people. The sisters travelled a long time ago through the artist's traditional country in South Australia's North West and the south west corner of the Northern Territory.
A man called Wati Nyiru was chasing the sisters trying to court one of them. He used all kinds of trickery in pursuit of them but through the skill of the eldest, they always managed to keep one step ahead of him. The sisters finally escaped to a far away place so they could stay together safe from the clutches of Wati Nyiru.
To this day the seven stars of the sisters followed by the bright star of Wati Nyiru following can be seen in the night sky in the constellations known as the Pleiades and Orion
Uluru at sunset. By far the coolest thing I saw in Australia. A huge sandstone rock formation in the heart of the Australian Outback that is thought to have started forming 550 million years ago.
It is considered sacred to the Pitjantjatjara Anangu, the Aboriginal people of that area, and after being there I can totally understand why. This photo does not do justice to the scale and enormity of Uluru. It was absolutely massive! My brother and I walked the entirety of its perimeter, 10 kilometers, and it was worth every second.
If you get a chance to visit Australia, I definitely recommend taking the trip to Uluru.
