One of our favourite trips so far. Give yourself lots of time as there are plenty of stunning hikes and scenery to take in. Best time to go is in winter.

An awesome day trip from Alice Springs - stunning scenery, plenty of places to stop - not too many people. Must sees to visit are: Ormiston Gorge, Simpson's Gorge and Standley Chasm. Bring plenty of water as it gets really hot, beware all the flies...More
