Glen Helen tours from Alice Springs and return

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 and see Glen Helen.

Glen Helen Gorge

The West MacDonnell Ranges part briefly at Glen Helen Gorge, to make way for the Finke River. The ranges are of pacoota sandstone and form steep, broken ridges and it is here that the permanent Finke River waterhole is an important refuge in the hot summer months. It provides shelter for all nine species of fish recorded for the Finke and is an important stopover for waterbirds migrating along its course. The Finke River continues and makes its way to the Simpson Desert. Glen Helen Gorge is a great place to view the ranges and nearby Glen Helen Resort offers accommodation and meals.

Nearby Mt Sonder

The ranges dominate the southern view and it is possible to climb to vantage points on the face to get photographs across the river and chalet to Mount Sonder.

How To Get There
