Macdonnell Ranges Adventure (Alice Springs to Alice Springs)

Itinerary

Macdonnell Ranges Adventure (Alice Springs to Alice Springs)

Day 1

### Day 1: Alice Springs to East MacDonnell Ranges Your departure time is 4.45pm today, so you have most of the day to relax. Alice Springs is really where you need to go to understand the heart and soul of Australia. Meet your guide and fellow travelers at the Alice Springs pick-up point this morning and set off to explore the Red Centre.

Day 2

### Day 2: East MacDonnell Ranges Often overlooked for its western counterpart, the Eastern MacDonnell Ranges just might be one of the Outback's best kept secrets. This is the home of the Arrernte people, the Traditional Owners of the land. Learn about their caterpillar dreamtime story on a short walk to Emily Gap, an important spiritual site to the Arrernte people containing galleries of ancient rock paintings. Drive to Jesse Gap followed by Trephina Gorge, where you'll set off on a one-hour guided walk to see its quartzite cliffs and rich birdlife. Afterwards, it's time for lunch; grab a bite at the historical Ross River Homestead. After exploring the best of the Eastern MacDonnell Ranges, we drive to our overnight bush camp in the West MacDonnell Ranges.

Day 3

### Day 3: West MacDonnell Ranges Spend the afternoon exploring the Outback scenery of the West MacDonnell Ranges. Visit one of the most photographed places in the Red Centre; Ormiston Gorge. Keep your eyes peeled for wallabies while admiring the colourful, sweeping walls surrounding its waterhole. Continue to Redbank Gorge and Ellery Creek Big Hole, a popular spot for a refreshing dip. After a satisfying day spent exploring the West MacDonnell Ranges, we head back to Alice Springs where our epic five-day adventure ends.
