This vast and spectacular section of the MacDonnell Ranges, located west of Alice Springs, is an outstanding example of an ancient landscape sculptured over time by climatic elements. Cool scenic gorges are important refuges for a collection of plants and animals, many of which are found only here and some are relicts of a bygone era of tropical forests. There are many opportunities for visitors to explore and appreciate the scenic beauty and history of the area. Features of the landscape are significant in the stories of Western Arrernte Aboriginal culture, and have existed for many thousands of years. There are basic camping facilities available at two different locations - The Woodland Camping Area and the Ridgetop Camping Area. Both have toilets, firepits and picnic tables, the Woodland Camping area also has free gas barbecues. 

Spaces are limited and operate on a first come, first served basis. Camping fees apply and are payable onsite.
