Glen Helen in the West MacDonnell Range
Located near the far end of the spectacular West MacDonnell Range, Glen Helen Gorge is on a stretch of road known as Namatjira Drive, named after the famous Indigenous artist Albert Namatjira.

The gorge is some 500 million years ago, formed from quartzite, which gives the ranges it wonderful hue. The river that flows into Glen Helen Gorge, creates one of the significant waterholes along the Finke River. The waterhole is home to several species of native desert fish, and waterbirds.

Glen Helen is the name given not only to the Gorge, and the 368 ha Nature Park, surrounding the Gorge, but also to the Glen Helen Resort and Homestead. Facilities here include motel style accommodation, powered sites or 'rough it' under the stars in well maintained campgrounds. It also provides a great place to stay to visit other nearby attractions including Ormiston Gorge, Mount Sonder Lookout and Redbank Gorge.

From here you can also enjoy aerial helicopter flights of varying lengths, providing a fantastic way to fully appreciated the magnificent landform that make up this part of Central Australia.
