WHAT TO EXPECT
The panoramic landscapes of the West MacDonnell Ranges are extraordinary for their immensity and array of sunburnt oranges, maroons and purples. View spectacular outbackscenery and take photos as we travel along through magnificent Outback Country, stopping at the many historic locations.
As we depart town, we will stop at the historical Flynn’s Grave Memorial. It’s located just outside Alice Springs and is the resting place for the ashes of John Flynn, the founder of the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
Next, it’s onto the ranges. Here you’ll explore Simpsons Gap, walking through the towering cliffs to the waterhole, keeping an eye out for black-footed rock wallabies. Multiple dreaming stories from the Arrernte Aboriginal people converge at Simpsons Gap. It’s also the mythological home of a group of giant goanna ancestors.
A short drive away is Angkerle (Standley Chasm), where you can wander along its stony watercourse, keeping an eye out for birds and wildlife that inhabit the area. You’ll also enjoy a spot of morning tea while you’re here, before returning to Alice Springs.
