Owen Springs Reserve - Redbank Waterhole - Central Australia
Located just a short drive southwest of Alice Springs, the Reserve is a favourite destination for 4WD visitors seeking quiet bush camping without facilities. Dog owners are also permitted to bring their pets to the south of Waterhouse Range within the Owen Springs Reserve. Here they can swim with their dogs, if there is water in the waterhole, or enjoy the freedom of off leash play. The usual rules apply for ensuring the behaviour of your dogs and the safety of others using the Reserve.

The Owen Springs Reserve was formerly the Owen Springs Cattle Station and was acquired by the Northern Territory Government in the year 2000 and opened to public access and enjoyment in 2003.

Steeped in Territory and pioneering history, the Owen Springs Reserve protects some important historical events. The main access track through the reserve closely follows the route that John McDouall Stuart took through the MacDonnell Ranges. His explorations between 1860 and 1862 help open up Central Australia to white settlement.
