  • Did the western MacDonald range day trip and Ormiston Gorge was the best part of the day where we could swim and cool off, the March flies were horrendous and we all got bitten quite badly, even...  more »
  • An awe-inspiring area which we walked across whilst on the Larapinta Trail. The colours of the cliffs of the gorge and the expanse of the pound took my breath away.  more »
  • 5 minutes walk to the waterhole, has a cafe open 10-4 each day, has great coffee. Track signs for pound loop is not very obvious along the way, may get lost if walking reverse loop so I recommend follow the loop direction showing on the map do not start walking from the opposite direction for reverse loop.
  • This is a spectacular gorge that i have been to so far. Highly recommended!
