  • Nice place to stop on the way to / from Alice Springs. There's a gorge (small lake - hole) suitable for swimming. And besides, there's a nice trail (well marked - easy) for hiking along the ridges. Allow about 90 minutes for the hike. While the hike is not difficult, it isn't suitable for kids nor for people with physical challenges.
  • Oh wow. So cold (water) but so beautiful. Easy access too.
