“Beautiful scenery.”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Simpsons Gap is a beautiful spot to visit, although similar to much of the MacDonnell Ranges. A peaceful area with a nice waterhole.

“Great place to visit”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

Simpsons gap was a wonderful thing to see. The sweeping dry river bed when we visited was awesome. The short walk along the river to the gap which exposed a pool of clear water was great. This is close to Alice Springs only 12 km's out and well worth a visit.

“Magnificent”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Hire a car and head out west from Alice Springs. You will not be disppointed. The scenery is wonderful and all the little walks to the waterholes are superb. This was one of the highlights of our trip to Australia.

“Excellent Nature!”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Worth to visit this place when you travelling from Kings Canyon to Alice spring through Merrinee Loop. You must spend at least 1 or 2 days around those area.
