Enjoy breakfast at the hotel before heading out for the beautiful West MacDonnell Ranges.

First stop is Angkerle (Standley Chasm). Take a walk along the stony watercourse, where spring-fed pools attract a great variety of wildlife and birds. Next, arrive at Ellery Creek Big Hole, a spectacular waterhole in the mighty Ellery Creek, which cuts through a gorge in the West MacDonnell Ranges. Thousands of years of massive floods have carved out this beautiful waterhole and unlocked some amazing geology. At this location you can see the natural ochres in the cliff face that have provided a source of materials for Indigenous people for thousands of years. A part of the West MacDonnell ranges is Ormiston Gorge offering spectacular geology and landforms. The rugged scenery of the gorge is complemented by a near-permanent waterhole, which attracts an interesting variety of native fauna and flora. Enjoy a casual lunch with your fellow travellers at Standley Chasm.

Surrounded by towering cliffs, incredible Simpsons Gap is one of the best known destinations in the ranges and features a number of walking tracks. Walk through Simpsons Gap to the waterhole, keeping an eye out for the elusive black-footed rock wallabies hiding among the rocks.

Enjoy the late afternoon sun reflecting on the MacDonnell Ranges as you return to Alice Springs. The evening is at your leisure to either dine in your hotel or find a local spot for dinner.

4 Star Hotel at Crowne Plaza Alice Springs Lasseters
An adventure awaits as you travel in our custom-designed 4WD vehicle. You willl reach off-road destinations that are otherwise difficult to access. Through the Central Australian landscape, down the very edge of Finke River and into the amazing Palm Valley.

The Palm Valley is aptly named as it is the only area in Central Australia where red cabbage palms survive. Despite the harsh conditions, the gorge is supported by small pockets of spring-fed pools that ensure the survival of a diverse range of plant species. From the 4WD on foot, you will be amazed by the enormous rock formations, pinnacles, gorges and endless palm trees in the area.

Sit back and relax as you enjoy a picnic lunch in the Finke Gorge National Park. Covering a staggering area of 46,000 hectares, it’s noted for its ancient palms. The park holds great cultural significance for the Arrarnta people and there is also evidence of early European settlement.

Visit Hermannsburg, known to the Arrarnta people as ‘Ntaria’. Established as an Aboriginal mission in 1877, the land was returned to the Traditional Owners in 1982. It is the birthplace of celebrated Aboriginal artist Albert Namatjira in 1902 and is renowned for its indigenous art collection. Here you can wander through the amazing artworks at the gallery and explore the historic buildings, many of which are now protected by the National Trust.

Afterwards, sit back and enjoy the view as we take you back to Alice Springs. The evening is at your leisure.
