This is a beautiful place to visit. We did the pound walk which took us about 3 1/2 hrs. The view from the top is spectacular. You do need to take plenty of water with you and a hat. The walk is not difficult and...More

Ormiston Gorge was a great place to stop and go for a nice tiny walk on a pathway down towards the gorge! It is such a calm and pretty environment. Definitely worth pulling in the see. It would be a lovely spot for a picnic!

This is a must see natural wonder on your West McDonnell ranges tour. You have to see it for yourself. Just wonderful!

A place of tranquility. Stunning jaw dropping scenery. Good for a picnic or to let the kids have a play in the sand. Australia's red centre at its best. Toilets available.

Make sure you take the leisurely stroll in. It’s a beautiful large gorge with a waterhole and you can continue your walk into the gorge go around further over rocks if you are adventurous.

An easy walk from the car park with a little effort involved. The gorges along this drive are all spectacular in there own way. You can can't miss any of them.

This lovely gorge sits in the West MacDonnell Ranges. Come along and take a short walk through it. Enjoy the red rocks and, perhaps, the water that may lie within it. Watch the birdlife pick around the place. Perhaps you may see some zebra finches.

Beautiful gorge, best viewed from Ghost Gum lookout (20 min moderate walk). Take the loop track from the lookout along clifftop to the North end of the gorge, then walk South through the gorge past waterhole. Allow 1.5 hours.
