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.

We had a great walk with our guide up into the hills and then down into the gorge. We then jumped across many rocks and then had a break in a wonderful little cafe and a well deserved Iced latte
