(Trephina Gorge Nature Park)
Located in the beautiful East MacDonnell Ranges, the Trephina Gorge
is accessible from Alice Springs via the sealed Ross Highway. The last 9 km
drive into Trephina Gorge is unsealed, 5 km being on a gravel road.
Trephina Gorge is known for its sheer quartzite cliffs and the iconic River Red
Gum that line the watercourses.
Two gorges dissect the range, Trephina (with its wide sandy creekbed) and John
Hayes Rock Hole (with its steep, narrow rock walls).
There are a number of walks that take in the scenic views, gorges and rock holes,
as well as the local flora and fauna, offering visitors some great photo opportunities.
