Gallery: Oxley Wild Rivers

New England’s Oxley Wild Rivers National Park is distinguished by its many waterfalls and the dry rainforest that cloak its gullies and slopes. Rivers plunge over cliffs to create one of the largest gorge systems in Australia, providing secluded swimming, canoeing and fishing spots. Lookouts at Apsley, Dangars and Wollomombi falls ­provide breathtaking perspectives at every turn.

Gallery: Alice Springs places and faces

Straddling the ephemeral Todd River, Alice Springs is the second largest town in the Northern Territory and the geographical heart of Australia, or as locals are given to saying, “the town closest to every beach in Oz”. In reality, it’s 1200km as the crow flies to the nearest ocean and about 1500km to the closest major cities, Adelaide and Darwin. It has a population of approximately 28,000, 12 per cent of the NT’s population.
