Tnorala / Gosse Bluff Conservation Reserve - Alice Springs area

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.

The rewards of this walk include dramatic views across wilderness that remains virtually unchanged since first described by Ernest Giles. Trek through beautiful valleys, beehive-shaped sandstone formations, and across rocky watercourses. Scattered across the range and just waiting to be discovered are many grinding stones, stone blades, stencilled art and petroglyphs, as the flat, rocky plateau made for relatively easy and safe travelling for Aboriginal people. Native wildlife to spot includes spinifex pigeons, rock-wallabies, euros, goannas and pythons. The Giles Track is named after the first European to explore the George Gill Range in 1872. It follows the southern rim of the range from Kings Canyon to Kathleen Springs, although it can be walked in either direction.

Ryan's Well Historical Reserve protects and preserves an important aspect of the nineteenth century push into the Northern Territory. Located 129 kilometres north of Alice Springs, the well was hand-dug in 1889 to supply water to travellers and stock along the Overland Telegraph Line. The well was named after Ned Ryan, a stonemason who became an expert at sinking wells. Make a stop along the Stuart Highway to read the detailed plaque beside the well, which describes the complex process of raising water and offers a glimpse into the early history of Central Australia. Within the reserve The Glen Maggie Homestead ruins reveal the way of life of pastoral settlers during the early 20th century. The Nicker family built the Glen Maggie sheep and cattle station near the well in 1914 and charged a small fee per head to draw water for travelling stock. By 1921 the homestead also served as a telegraph office and store. In 1932 it became well known as the last supply point for miners heading north-west to 'The Granites' gold rush. The building was finally abandoned in 1935 and the Telegraph Office was moved north to Aileron Station.
