Walk through the Trephina Gorge and discover superb and diverse scenery.The contrasting hues of the bright blue skies and quartzite rock formations bring all the colors of Central Australia into vivid detail.

Get a glimpse into the Australia’s distant past and experience what life was like for these hardy prospectors of the Outback.
