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 enjoy the luxury of our own exclusive campsite, nestled in the saddle of a hill above the Finke River, with Mt Sonder to the west and the magnificent Mc D0nnell Ranges all around us.
Kindly provided by Trek Larapinta, this beautiful campsite is a step up from our remote bush camping; with a large, stand-up tent for each person, a stretcher as well as our usual super-comfy swags, a composing toilet and a solar shower. There is a large undercover area to work in that augments the shade provided by our usual marquee/studio. A very comfortable set up!
It is only a short walk down from Camp to a beautiful waterhole on the Finke where you can take a dip and enjoy the abundant birdlife. 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!
