Simpsons Gap (West MacDonnell Range) - Cities, Towns and Localities
Located in the West MacDonnell National Park, Simpsons Gap is one of the more well known gaps in the West MacDonnell Range, being only 26 km west of Alice Springs.

During periods of rainfall in the region, many of the gorges, waterways and dry riverbeds fill with water. If enough rain falls, creating pools of water, nature takes its course and life appears as if from nowhere.

Simpsons Gap is renowned location for a number of species of desert frogs including the Centralian Green Frog, sometimes referred to as the Centralian Tree Frog. They come in two forms, the pale lime green colour and the brown colour. Although they can sometimes be found in trees, they are usually found on rocks and crevasses, near sources of water, emerging at night.
