Known as Tjoritja by the traditional owners of the land, West MacDonnell National Park stretches 161km west of Alice Springs. Some plants and animals are relicts of a bygone era of tropical forests. Must see places like Simpsons Gap, Ochre Pits, Standley Chasm (privately operated) and Ellery Creek Big Waterhole, Ormiston Gorge and Glen Helen. Take time to enjoy the outback sunrise, sunset and starry night sky while visiting the park.
