Simpsons Gap (West MacDonnell Ranges) - 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 Ranges, 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 Desert Tree Frog. They come in two forms, the pale colour and the darker brown-reddish colouration.
