Next stop is Angkerle (Standley Chasm). Take a walk along the stony watercourse, where spring-fed pools attract a great variety of wildlife and birds. At the Ochre Pits you can see the natural ochres in the cliff face that have provided a source of materials for Indigenous people for thousands of years.

Enjoy a Bushman’s lunch, followed by a visit to Glen Helen Gorge. Ormiston Gorge offers all the spectacular geology and landforms of the Tjoritja/MacDonnell Ranges.
