Travellers exploring the Northern Territory during their Australia tours will soon be able to take in breathtaking views from a new viewing platform being constructed at Ormiston Gorge.
The local government has provided A$100,000 (£46,000) to build the platform on the popular Ghost Gum walking route that leads along the gorge.
Northern Territory tourism minister Chris Burns said that the new attraction could give the region "the edge over other holiday destinations".
He added: "Investing in the Northern Territory’s parks is vital considering that an estimated 425,000 interstate and overseas holiday visitors included a visit to a Territory park in the last financial year."
"That represents 65 per cent of visitors to the Territory."
Ormiston Gorge, which acts as a showcase for the stunning rock and land formations of the MacDonnell ranges, is located 135km west of Alice Springs and can be accessed via the Larapinta and Namatjira drives.
The Northern Territory occupies the majority of the central region of mainland Australia and boasts one of the country’s iconic tourist attractions – Ayers Rock, known in the local language as Uluru.
