Like a wise old person, the mountain watches over an ever-changing desert
landscape keeping the stories of an ancient Arrernte Aboriginal culture.
in honour of the German botanist Wilhelm Otto Sonder, Mount Sonder, to the local Western Arrernte Aboriginal people the Mount Sonder area, or
Rwetyepme (roo - choop - ma), is criss-crossed with the tracks of their
dreamtime ancestors. The main story for Rwetyepme is the Man / Euro (Hill
Kangaroo) ‘dreaming’, told on signs at Redbank Gorge.
Following are images of the West MacDonnell Ranges taken from the Mount Sonder Lookout.
