Wurre / Rainbow Valley Conservation Reserve ~ Images of Australia


Wurre

This is an Important Meeting Place — it is an important place for family to visit and camp and to teach kids about that place and looking after country.

For the Upper Southern Arrernte People, the place you see before you is known as Wurre, a bush tucker dreaming site and an important ceremony place. Charcoal, grindstones and rock art that date back thousands of years remind us that after plentiful rain, people have always met and camped here.

When we look at the land, its part of us — not just a pretty sight. Its about keeping country alive for future generations.

This arid landscape is a place of dramatic change. The pastel tones of morning give way to washed out colours of noon, which slowly change to a rich glow at sunset. Times of heavy rain bring an explosion of animal life and vivid wildflowers, then drought covers the landscape in a red blanket of silence.

Rainbow Valley Conservation Reserve is located about 75 km south of Alice Springs along the Stuart Highway. From there take the left turn onto unsealed road. A 4 wheel-drive is recommended, with the total distance being approximately 97 km.

These free standing bluffs and cliffs form part of the James Range. It is a place where the dune fields meet the ranges, providing a place of stunning contrasts, with varied scenery and diversity of plants and wildlife.
