Wild dingo cooling down at
Creek Big Hole, West MacDonnell Ranges.
Ellery Creek is part of the Finke River system, with Ellery Creek Big Hole
being one of the largest permanent waterholes in the West MacDonnell National
Park, offering a important source of water for the local wildlife and a popular,
refreshing stop for many locals and travellers.
Humorously known as Alice Springs Beach, Ellery Creek is located about an hours drives west of Alice Springs, along Namatjira Drive.
The waterhole is a great place to swim or just relax on a hot day. Swimmers
should take care, as the water is deep, and during the winter, extremely cold.
For your own safety, do not climb or jump from rocks.
