Join us as we uncover the wonder of the West MacDonnell Ranges National Park, a treasure trove of natural beauty and history.
There are plenty of walking trails and waterholes to cool off from the Red Centre‘s heat. Located west of Alice Springs, the West MacDonnell Ranges cover 161km and serve as a refuge for wildlife found nowhere else.
On our 1 Day West MacDonnell Ranges tours, you’ll enjoy the diverse landscape and scenic views of Ellery Creek Big Hole, Ormiston Gorge, and the vivid colours of the mineral Ochre Pits. Before journeying home, via Simpsons Gap, an area surrounded by towering cliffs and rich in wildlife such as the black-footed rock wallaby are rare species known for the West MacDonnell Ranges region.
