Don't go to Glen Helen expecting 5 star accomodation. It is about an hour away from Alice Springs, so you well and truly far away from civilisation. I camped in the camping area from a powered site. The amenities are basic but sufficient. The views of the gorge, which rise up over the entire property - are sensational. Sunset is a truly amazing experience there. If you are a relaxed person who enjoys nature and beauty over luxury, this is the place for you. My partner and I enjoyed everything the gorge had to offer and then ate an amazing dinner at the restaurant. It was 5 star food and we were able to wear thongs while we ate! Then we moved into the pub and enjoyed some beers and a live band which created a really nice, festive atmosphere. In the morning we woke up early and drove up to the lookout at Mt Sonder for sunrise, only 10 minutes away. I would recommend Glen Helen for any traveller. Very memorable.
