West MacDonnell Ranges

The West MacDonnell Ranges—stretching westward from just a few kilometers outside Alice Springs for around 200 km (125 mi)—are a spectacular series of red-capped mountains interspersed by rocky canyons and narrow gorges. Each of the chasms and gorges has its own unique character, and in many there are waterholes where you can swim. Black-footed rock wallabies are among the wildlife to be spotted. The 223 km (139 mi) Larapinta Trail in the park is the showpiece of Central Australian bushwalking. The trail is broken into 12 sections, each a one- to two-day walk.
