Simpsons Gap (West MacDonnell Range) - Cities, Towns and Localities
Located in the West MacDonnell National Park, Simpsons Gap is one of the more well known gaps in the West MacDonnell Range, being only 26 km west of Alice Springs.

During periods of rainfall in the region, many of the gorges, waterways and dry riverbeds fill with water. If enough rain falls, creating pools of water, nature takes its course and life appears as if from nowhere.

Simpsons Gap has a number of frog species and under the right conditions, numbers can explode with hundreds of frogs appearing as if from nowhere. The gorge is also home to the Stimson’s Python (sometimes incorrectly called the Simpsons Python), who feed on frogs, as well as birds, lizards, rats and mice.
