  • Great historical site. Needed more time here to explore. Great aboriginal paintings to buy from local artists. Really good strudel.
  • We did a self tour of the site and learnt about the harsh times the occupants endured. The buildings are almost in a ruin state but not much more can be expected in this remote and unforgiving place. The cafe is good and has a nice selection of pies, cakes and sandwiches etc. (but remember where you are remote central Australia, don't expect full city service). Overall it is a long drive from Alice Springs to Hermansberg and there is nothing else to see here, the community outside the precinct restricts access to the residential areas and it is quite desolate. If passing through worth the visit, but touch and go if it is worth the drive from Alice and back.
