After leaving Glen Helen Homestead we began retracing our steps eastwards along Larapinta Drive. The intention was to stop at major ‘gaps’ in the Range that we bypassed during the morning. Ormiston Gorge was the first of these. Be amazed looking at the two maps below; look at the shape of the landscape and how the Ormiston Gorge cuts through the West MacDonnell Ranges.
As usual, the Gorge was a gap in the Range.The Northern Territory Government provides information about this permanent waterhole here. The Ranges have their own site with one page providing photos and information here. As the Travel Outback Australia notes ‘Ormiston Gorge is gorgeous’ here.
