We are delighted to be returning to this much loved location on the Finke River near Glen Helen in the West Macdonnell Ranges National Park. In recent years this beautiful spot has beed discovered by the grey nomads, as a consequence it has become a bit too busy. But this year we will have our own exclusive campsite up above the river, still within easy walking distance however but well away from the other campers with 360 degree views of Mt Sonder and the magnificent Mc D0nnell Ranges. Kindly provided by Trek Larapinta, this will be a step up from our remote bush camping, with a roomy, stand up tent each, a stretcher as well as our comfy swags and a composing toilet. Luxury indeed!
This is the heart of Namatjira country and camped here you will live each day in the landscape he portrayed so well, its colour, its infinite detail, its grandeur and its spirit. We will take day trips by 4WD to some of the most spectacular locations in the West MacDonnell National Park such as Ormiston Gorge, Redbank and Roma Gorges. Charlie and I have an intimate connection with this place having camped here many times over the years and yet it still remains one of our favourite places on the planet, we would love to share its delights and secrets with you, we know many that others miss!
