East MacDonnell Ranges 4WD Day Trip from Alice Springs
From USD 138.94
During this private guided 4WD tour, travel through the outback landscape of the East MacDonnell Ranges. The region features geological formations and scenery that define Central Australia, such as gaps, gorges, and bush walks. Tour highlights include stops at Emily Gap, Coroboree Rock, a stroll over the wide sandy creek bed of Trephina Gorge, Ghost Gum, and other sacred rock art sites.
What to Expect
Your day at Eastern MacDonnell Ranges includes both Emily and Jessie Gap rock art displaying a major Dreaming story of the region, the Yeperenye (Caterpillar) Dreaming. Stop for a walk at the outstanding Corroboree Rock and  Trephina Gorge Nature Park, check out Ross River Homestead where you will also tuck into a homestead style lunch. The group has exclusive access to parts of the Ross River cattle station that is visited by no other tour groups. This tour is run by a family owned and local business.

You will get some amazing photo opportunities standing in front of Australia's largest Ghost Gum, or take a swim in an outback oasis water hole (summer months only).

Return to Alice Springs through riverbeds and cattle stations via the legendary "Binns Track".
