Marvel at the ancient landscape of the aptly named Rainbow Valley - sandstone bluffs and cliffs with exposed bands of coloured rock. These free standing cliffs form part of the James Range, and are a favourite subject of photographers who capture their varied shapes and colours at dawn or dusk when the rainbow-like rock bands are highlighted. There are unmarked trails for bushwalking around the bluff area and to other locations along the range The reserve is also rich in evidence of Aboriginal occupation. You will see rock engravings or petroglyphs and paintings as well as grinding stones and stone tool chips, especially around the hills and ridges. The coloured rock bands in the sandstone cliffs were caused by water. The red iron of sandstone dissolved and was drawn to the surface during the dry season. This dark red capping is hard and weathers slowly, whereas the softer white sandstone below erodes quickly into loose sand. Weathering and erosion are also responsible for the valley shape, where sandstone blocks have been eroded into rock faces and squared towers. Access is for four-wheel drive vehicles only.
A camping and picnic area is provided.

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.
