Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Simpsons Gap, Burt Plain NT 0872, Australia

Simpson Gap features the towering cliffs of Simpsons Range, a permanent waterhole and opportunities to spot resident wildlife, ancient Red River Gums with a taste of Central Australia. Simpsons Gap is a significant site to the local Arrernte Aboriginal people and was the mythological home of giant goanna ancestors.
We will take you on a short, easy walk alongside a picturesque dry creek bed that leads to a dramatic gap in the MacDonnell Ranges and a waterhole rich in native wildlife, flora and geology. Sometimes you may even spot you might see Black-footed Rock-wallabies along the walking track into the rocky slopes gap.

Stop At: Standley Chasm Angkerle, Larapinta Drive, West MacDonnell National Park, Northern Territory 0872 Australia

The next stop on your exploration of the West MacDonnell is a picturesque walk at Standley Chasm. After Mrs Ida Standley, who in 1914 became the first school teacher in Alice Springs, this place was named Standley Chasm. Walking access to the dramatic 80m sheer rock-face of the chasm is along a well-maintained trail (1.2km/15mins each way), following the natural creek bed with seating & interpretative signage. Angkerle Atwatye, “the Gap of Water”, is a striking geological formation with significant botanical, bird-watching & wildlife photography appeal.

Standley Chasm is operated by Arrernte aboriginal family members who are direct descendants of the Aboriginal people who have lived in the area for thousands of years.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: 2/15 Jane Rd, White Gums NT 0870, Australia

A relaxing one-hour camel tour led by experienced cameleers lead you on your camel ride. Due to their gentle nature camels tend not to frighten the wildlife, thereby giving you a chance to get up close to wallabies, kangaroos, lizards and native birds. Travel through Iron Bark and Mulga trees, across a clay pan flat, before reaching the sweeping vistas of Temple Bar Gap. Here, you’ll get the opportunity to stretch your legs and hear stories from experienced cameleers.

After finishing your camel ride, you will conclude with your trip and drop you back at your hotel.
