Day 11 - Alice Springs - East MacDonnell Ranges

We drove out into the East MacDonnell Ranges – which was a bit of a “Gap” and “Gorge” tour!!  We stopped at Emily and Jessie Gaps we saw some Aboriginal rock painting before continuing to Corroboree Rock and then Trephina Gorge which was by far our favourite. On the way into Trephina we took a short 4wd side track to Visit the John Hayes waterhole and the John Hayes gorge. At Trephina gorge the kids met a researcher from a WA university who was collecting scorpions!  He has a large black example to show the kids that he had caught at Palm Valley – where we intend to stay in the next few days!!! We also took a walk  :walk:  at Trephina that followed the rim of the gorge before returning along the sand floor. Very spectacular!

Trephina Gorge 4

We continued out to NDhala Gorge (another 4wd only access) where we saw some Aboriginal petroglyphs, but everyone was pretty tired and hot by then so we only walked part of the gorge. – Looks like we need to come back some time.  :mrgreen:
