Alice sits in a gap between the East and West MacDonnell Range. To the west lies Standley Chasm, Simpsons Gap and Ormiston Gorge. You will walk through spectacular ochre chasms, leading to picturesque waterholes. Driving back to your accommodation in the late afternoon, marvel as the ranges change into a deep purple hue.
Alice Springs (Uluru)
One of the best routes to see The Rock, is via the Mereenie Loop, that heads out from Hermannsburg, looping through the spectacular country to Kings Canyon, then arriving at Uluru and Kata Tjuta (Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park).
Darwin to Uluru
If you have the time, this would be an unforgettable trip. Starting from Darwin, you travel through the fabulous Kakadu National Park. There visit Jabiru, and experience the unforgettable views, as well as Aboriginal artwork at Ubirr and Nourlangie Rock. A detour to Jim Jim and Twin Falls then onto Katherine via Pine Creek. Here at Katherine there are a series of 13 spectacular gorges in Nitmiluk National Park. Onward to Mataranka and relax at the famous Mataranka Thermal Pool. Then heading south, a couple days stay at Tennant Creek, with a visit to the Devil’s Marbles, near the Davenport Ranges. Then finally onto Alice Springs, where the surrounding area have plenty of ‘must see’, including Kings Canyon and Uluru.
Kakadu National Park / Litchfield National Park
Waterlilies, billabongs and water falls, a visit here must include the ancient rock art galleries of Nourlangie. Here you will see images of every-day life, such as hunters and wildlife, interlaced with Dreamtime figures such as Ngalyod The Rainbow Serpent. Then if time permits, skip down to Litchfiled National Park and experience the monsoonal rainforest, plunge pools and termite mounds.
Kings Canyon
Only 230 km south-west of Alice Springs is this spectacular canyon, with sandstone walls that rise to 100 metres and offer breathtaking views from above. For the fit bush walker, the canyon walk will lead you up a steep incline to the rocky domes at the top and around the canyon rim. The walk takes about 4 hours, so make sure you have water, and culminates in a visit down to the valley named ‘the Garden of Eden’. Here you will find lush green palms set around a tranquil waterhole. There is a more leisurely creek walk that can be done in an hour.
Palm Valley / Finke Gorge National Park
Details: Just 2 hours drive west of Alice Springs, are the incredible gorges carved into the ancient sandstone mountain range.  You enter this ancient oasis through Cycad Gorge, where native ferns grow from the rock walls, and the rock pools are crystal clear against the white river sand. You walk along an ancient riverbed, past groves of red cabbage palms and livistona mariae palms. There are awe-inspiring views from Kalaranga Lookout.
Simpson Desert
This incredible 200,000 square kilometres of desert in central Australia is dominated by sand dunes up to 20 metres high. This harsh landscape is constantly changed by the desert winds and far from being lifeless, it provides the habitat for a variety of grasses, shrubs and wildlife. After the rainy season, flowers can be seen in the desert. Most of the fauna is nocturnal.
Standley Chasm
Details: This dramatic red gash through the MacDonnell Ranges was created over millions of years ago by floods and erosion. It is best seen around midday when the cliffs, that rise some 80 metres above the ground, reflect the burning red glow of of the sun. In contrast, you can take the 15 minute walk to the chasm along a shady gully floor, its stony creek fed by springs. Here you will find huge ghost gums, cycad palms and fern, that provide habitat to the local wildlife.
Uluru / Kata-Tjuta / Kings Canyon
Details: Many tourist, elect to visit the three icons of Central Australia as a package tour or self-drive. If you have the time, you can witness both the sunset and sunrise experience of Uluru. Whilst there take the time to enjoy the award winning Anangu Tours with Aboriginal Guides. There are also a number of walk options. Kata-Tjuta can be viewed from a number of viewing points. You can also select from two walks. Then onto Watarrka National Park and the popular Kings Canyon and Rim Walk.
