An Arid National Park
Oct. 2018 • Couples
Tjoritja/West MacDonnell NP is a wonderful National Park , that in places is dry & inhospitable and around the corner it's lush & cool with water ponds & abundant tree cover. The many gorges are all different in their own way and most are easily approached. Others plus other attractions like Mt.Sonder & the Larapinta Track require a bit more stamina but are very rewarding in their completion. Enjoy the varied birdlife , wallabies, lizards & other animals in their own backyard. The West Macs are for all to enjoy !

Collection of orges and water holes
Oct. 2018 • Couples
One of the west side MacDonnell National Park water holes is the Ellery Creek . This requires a 2 x 1.2 = 2.4 km return walk with a very nice water hole suitable for swimming

A national park with a multitude of special gems
Jun. 2018 • Friends
This park has it all. Soaring peaks like Mt Sonder, gorgeous gorges like Ellery Creek Big Hole and Redbank, and the Larapinta Track. Take time to view these various features. Enjoy the birdlife, red rock, fauna and flora.

Mt. Sonder - a timeless sentinel
May 2018 • Friends
For bush walkers in central Australia, Mt.Sonder is the jewel in the outback crown. Leaving the Redbank Gorge car park, the well-marked track rises steadily to a ridge and on to a high gap where sweeping views can be seen to Mt. Sonder, Mr Zeil, Haasts Bluff, Mt Razorback and Gosses Bluff in the distant south. The track to the summit is rough on the feet but not difficult walking. There are commanding views over the West Macs which culminate in a spectacular vista on the (false) summit. The walk offers is no water, no shade and no phone reception, however in the Winter months the trail is very popular, especially with commercial tours braving the early walk to witness a summit dawn. Allow a full day, take a good hat, sturdy shoes or boots and at less 1.5 litres of water per person.

Great scenery, great tour guide
Feb. 2018 • Couples
Having travelled a bit and taken many tours I reckon Bluey our bus driver/tour guide from Emu Run tops the lot. He had a story for everything and even the longest story was timed perfectly to coincide with where we were. The scenery was outstanding as well and a swim in the waterhole was a a great addition on a hot day. Morning/afternoon teas and lunch were simple but all that was needed and the extra cold water Bluey loaded into the luggage compartment was most welcome. All passengers were tipping out the water they brought which had got warm to refill with the cold. The bus could have done with a little more legroom for a big bloke, but the seats were very comfortable. Highly recommended way to spend a day around Alice Springs.

Exceeded Expectations
Oct. 2017 • Family
Wow just amazing. Do not rush trying to aee all that is on offer here in one day. We spent 3 days exploring the area. Some parts are only a short walk. The swimming in Ellery Creek Big Hole was fantastic (although a little bit chilly). Some tracks are 4 wheel drive but most are accessible by 2 wheel drive cars.

Day trip
Mar. 2017 • Solo
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 and possibly invest in a fly net - food can be bought at Standley Chasm Kiosk.
