  • beautiful place, only about 20 km from Alice Springs. It is possible to drive there or follow a cycling path. The walk there flat, short and easy. At the end of it there is always a good chance to spot black footed rock wallabies
  • Beautiful. Blackfoot Rockwallabies at dawn, don't miss them!
  • AAT Kings did a wonderful job showing us around...Thanks
  • The earlier you arrive the better, before the buses arrive.
