Great scenic walk, easy drive from Alice springs (half an hour or so) along a good road. Staff at kiosk were great. Obviously a busy day but gave us the spiel about it being a cultural important place with just enough information. Given the number...More

It was nice to be able to sit and enjoy scones and tea after a walk down to the chasm. The path is very easy to walk and it is lovely and shady almost the entire way. I really enjoyed this appt.

With so much else to see in the West Macs this one can be missed if you're short on time. $12 per adult entry is a lot when everything else is free. If you're only walking in and out of the gorge you'll be there...More

The chasm is a short 1.2 km easy walk on a well maintained walking path from the lovely kiosk/ office. Try and get there at mid day with the sun overhead to give the best colours.

Thank you for taking time to review on Tripadvisor. We're quite surprised & disappointed to hear you were "underwhelmed" by the natural beauty of the landscape at Standley Chasm ANGKERLE, this would be considered un-usual by the majority of our very satisfied visitors. We are...More

No doubting it’s a lovely place and it’s a picturesque and short walk in on a good path but $12pp save your money!Simpson’s Gap is closer to Alice Springs, free and in my opinion just as good if not better.
