Simpsons Gap (West MacDonnell National Park)
The Simpsons Gap and surrounds offers visitors an opportunity experience the beauty of the landscape, close to Alice Springs. Within the gorge and surrounding area visitors can learn about some of the local flora and fauna.

The gorge has a group of resident Black-footed Rock Wallabies, often seen at dawn and dust, as they come down to feed. During the cooler winter-spring season, the wallabies may also sometimes be seen during the day.

With easy access by car or cycling along the Simpsons Gap Bike Path from Alice Springs, the track down to the gorge is a pleasant easy walk. There are a number of walks including the Ghost Gum Walk, Cassia Hill and the Woodland Trail. For the more adventurous, Simpsons Gap is part of sections 1 and 2 of the famed Larapinta Trail.

Check out some of our fauna images from Simpsons Gap. We also have images of the wonderful frog species to be found at the Gorge, although unfortunately, they are often only seen when conditions are right.
