  • I can't find the word to describe this beautiful place. I went to Uluru and I know it's very silly to compare but this place is the best in my trip. Quiet, but I can hear the echo of birds, sound of water and wind.
  • This is truly an amazing sight. less than 10 min walk from the car park and it looks very nice. there is a path way to get to the start of the Gap.
  • Best to be visited by bike or foot before sunset. Beautiful spot with many details to find.
  • There is a short walking trail to follow once leaving your car or bicycle at the free park. There is drinking water and good toilets. This is a relatively short distance from Alice Springs and worth a stop on your way to Standley Chasm. Note the cycle trail ends at Flynns Grave, 16 km, then another 4 km to town.
