West Macdonnell National Park, Alice Springs Reviews

  • Visited Palm Valley. Definitely 4WD. Lovely drive with little challenges except when we arrived had to park SUV and walk a little...but your vehicle and you might be sturdier and carry on. Though a vehicle pulling a trailer dropped it at same point. Lovely camping ground 4km before Palm Valley. Supplies gas cooking toilets and showers. Ranger living in area available in emergencies.

  • Something for everyone. Beautiful scenery, impressive geology, wonderful aboriginal culture, top class for tourists to get a sample of the outback. It leaves you breathless at every stop.

  • Nice place to visit.... Al surroundings are very neat and clean.. It feels quite nice to visit there...

  • Stunning stunning and more stunning! So much to see and explore along this magnificent range. These are taken from the Mt Sonder Lookout, a few minutes from Glenn Helen Gorge overlooking the Finke River.

  • Unique landscape...where rivers run dry or ten feet high
