Being part of the MacDonnell Ranges, stretching some 644 km, both east and west of Alice Springs, the West MacDonnell Range, offers a range of popular attractions and activities for visitors to the region.

Encompassing many natural landforms, the range is home to a number of popular destinations including Simpsons Gap, Ellery Creek Big Hole, Stanley Chasm, Ormiston Gorge and Glen Helen.

Seeing these attractions by tours, charters or self-drive is the perfect way to explore the region. Another unique way is by helicopter, with options available from Alice Springs and Glen Helen.
