The Finke Gorge NP is home to Palm Valley, a flourishing oasis in a vast expanse of red that contains a large stand of ancient palms and cycads. It is a wonderful, truly beautiful place, with a couple of tracks taking you to the edge of the forest of palms. However, the road into the NP is rough, especially the last 5-6 km or so. Definitely suited to high-clearance 4WDs only. We had a hired a 4WD in Alice and it handled the track admirably, but it is not a road for the faint-hearted nor SUVs used to suburban streets.
