Red Centre Highlights

You may know it's sacred to the Aboriginal people here, and that it turns some spectacular colours at sunrise and sunset. You might not know that you can experience it through Aboriginal eyes, or that there are many other sacred and breathtaking sites here in Australia's vast centre.

You might not realise that this landscape has green vegetation and lush waterholes as well as dusty red roads and huge slabs of rock. And what you won't really understand until you get here is the magic, majesty, silence and splendid isolation of Australia's Red Centre.

Illamurta Springs Conservation Reserve

South of Finke Gorge National Park, Alice Springs Area,
Alice Springs, Northern Territory 0870

Discover the peace and beauty of Illamurta Springs Conservation Reserve - one of the NT's most isolated reserves. Located 192 kilomtres south-west of Alice Springs, it encompasses the southern foothills of the James Range, a permanent natural spring where several relict aquatic plant species are found, and the ruins of the Illamurta Police Camp. A large number of stone artefacts, including fragments of grindstones can be seen in the reserve, providing evidence of Aboriginal occupation.
An important cultural site for the Southern Arrernte (Pertame) Aboriginal people, the area is part of the 'Kuniya-Snake' (Python) Dreaming. The Illamurta Springs Police Camp was established between 1893 and 1912 after the closure of the Boggy Hole Police Station in the Finke Gorge National Park. The Police Station functioned for a time as an administrative centre and as a distribution point of rations to Aboriginal people. Access to the Reserve is via the Stuart Highway and Ernest Giles Road, or from Palm Valley via the Finke River 4WD Route. The Ernest Giles Road and access tracks are unsealed, sandy and occasionally closed following heavy rain. The tracks are four-wheel drive only, due to their unstable and changing road surfaces.

Tnorala/Gosse Bluff Conservation Reserve

175 kilometres west of Alice Springs, via Hermannsburg, Alice Springs Area,
Alice Springs, Northern Territory 0870

The Tnorala/Gosse Bluff Conservation Reserve is a place of international scientific interest as well cultural significance to the Western Arrernte Aboriginal people. Located about 175 kilometres from Alice Springs, it is also the site of a huge crater. Take the short walk to a lookout at Tylers Pass on the adjacent ridge for a good vista of the landscape. Rising 180 metres above the desert, the crater is an astounding five kilometres in circumference. Much of the crater has eroded away, with the original bed of the crater now two kilometres below the surface. The crater was created approximately 142 million years ago, when a huge comet struck Central Australia, leaving one of the largest impact craters in the world. The reserve is of great significance to the Western Arrernte Aboriginal people, who believe Tnorala was formed when a group of women danced across the sky as the Milky Way. During this dance a mother put her baby aside in its wooden baby carrier. The carrier toppled over the edge of the dancing area and crashed to earth where it was transformed into the circular rock formation of Tnorala. Camping and fires are not permitted within the reserve.

Finke Gorge National Park

Larapinta Drive, 140 kilometres west of Alice Springs, Alice Springs Area,
Hermannsburg, Northern Territory 0872

Explore the ancient landscapes of Finke Gorge National Park, 140 kilometres west of Alice Springs. Walk into valleys of rare plants, or follow a popular four-wheel drive route. The 46,000-hectare park protects the desert oasis Palm Valley, home to a diverse range of rare and unique plant species. Those plants include the Red Cabbage Palm, which is only found here - botanic remnants from millions of years ago, when Central Australia was lush with tropical forests. The Finke River is claimed to be one of the oldest in the world, with areas dating back 350 million years. For experienced four-wheel drivers, the popular Finke drive route is an adventurous drive down the Finke River to Illamurta Springs Conservation Reserve and Watarrka National Park. The park and nearby areas are significant to the Western Arrernte Aboriginal people and there is also evidence of early European settlement. Follow one of the marked trails short distances to survey the area from lookouts, or to find out more about the mythology of the Western Arrernte Aboriginal culture. Pitch a tent in the campground - toilets, showers and gas barbecues are provided and fees apply.

Another major stop is Tennant Creek, site of Australia's last gold rush in the 1920s and 30s. Mataranka has thermal springs and a fascinating pioneering history. Katherine, further up the road, is the gateway to the famous Katherine Gorge in Nitmiluk National Park and is where the Explorer's Way intersects with the Savannah Way tourism drive. Darwin is only 320 kilometres from Katherine, there are a number of detour routes.

Henbury Meteorites Conservation Reserve

Ernest Giles Road, 145 kilometres south of Alice Springs, Alice Springs Area,
Alice Springs, Northern Territory 0870

Walk into an other-worldly landscape shaped by an meteor hitting the earth at Henbury Meteorites Conservation Reserve. Located 145 kilometres south-west of Alice Springs, the reserve contains 12 craters that were formed when the Henbury Meteor, weighing several tonnes and accelerating to over 40,000 kilometres per hour, disintegrated before impact. Follow the self-guided walking track around the craters, the largest of which is 180 metres wide and 15 metres deep. You will have to look more closely for the smallest, which is barely recognisable at 6 metres wide and only a few centimetres deep. Three or four of the craters can be seen very clearly and inspected at close range. Keen photographers should time their visit for early morning or late afternoon, when the sun defines the craters clearly. The scattered fragments of the Henbury Meteorite can be found at the Museum of Central Australia. They consist mainly of iron and nickel and are extremely heavy. Over 500 kilograms of metal have been found on the site, the largest weighing over 100 kilograms. Visitors can camp in a dedicated area with basic facilities, which is adjacent to the car park. Water and firewood are not supplied, and camping fees apply.
