Ellery Creek Big Hole tours from Alice Springs and return
to the West MacDonnell ranges in Australia

Sightseeing day tour to the West MacDonnell Ranges from Alice Springs in Northern Territory Australia. The West Mac's are a mighty mountain range - their majesty takes most people by surprise. We travel along them all day - stopping at beautiful gorges and waterholes as we go. In the warmer months make sure you put your bathers in to enjoy a refreshing swim at Ormiston Gorge or Ellery Creek Bighole.

Ellery Creek Big Hole in the West MacDonnell ranges from Alice Springs

Free entry

High red cliffs, a large waterhole and a sandy creek fringed by gums make this one of the most popular and picturesque picnicking spots in the West MacDonnell Ranges. Much more than just a popular place for the locals to take a refreshing dip, Ellery Creek Big Hole is also recognised as an internationally significant geological site. A three kilometre Dolomite walk provides an opportunity for visitors to explore some of the interesting formations. The West MacDonnell Ranges are the source of the water that has collected in a deep pool. Red River and Ghost Gums shelter the picnic area located nearby. Camping is permitted (fees apply).

Ellery Creek Big Hole is located 126 kilometres along the Larapinta Trail starting from the Alice Springs Telegraph Station and is the Trailhead for Sections 6 and 7 of the trail.

Section 6 of the Larapinta Trail is graded as medium - a narrow track which may be rough in places, with some climbing and descending, suitable for people who walk regularly.

Section 7 of the Larapinta Trail is graded as hard - a rough and narrow track with some steep and/or long climbs and descents, suitable for fit people with previous bushwalking experience.
