Ellery Creek Big Hole in the West MacDonnell ranges
from Alice Springs
High red cliffs, a large waterhole and a sandy creek fringed
by gums make this one of the most popular and picturesque
picnicking spots in the West MacDonnell Ranges. Much more
than just a popular place for the locals to take a refreshing
dip, Ellery Creek Big Hole is also recognised as an internationally
significant geological site. A three kilometre Dolomite walk
provides an opportunity for visitors to explore some of the
interesting formations. The West MacDonnell Ranges are the
source of the water that has collected in a deep pool. Red
River and Ghost Gums shelter the picnic area located nearby.
Camping is permitted (fees apply).
Ellery Creek Big Hole is located 126 kilometres along the
Larapinta Trail starting from the Alice Springs Telegraph
