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.


It is a spectacular waterhole in the might Ellery Creek.  Camping facilities are available for tents, trailers and caravans with 2WD.  Here you will find toilets, picnic tables and gas BBQs.

Great spot to stay and refresh with a swim. Flushing toilets are a bonus. Good hiking tracks and views. Camping spots are small but most are level.
