This park has it all. Soaring peaks like Mt Sonder, gorgeous gorges like Ellery Creek Big Hole and Redbank, and the Larapinta Track. Take time to view these various features. Enjoy the birdlife, red rock, fauna and flora.

Ormiston Gorge is set in the Macdonnel mountains about 132KM or 1 ½ hours from Alice. The Gorge rock pool is really a large pond surrounded by coarse sand with the red rough mountain towering above, very beautiful and good for photos. We went mid-February...More
