Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Many seem to only allow a day to whizz down the West Mac ranges. More fool them I say. You get only a glimpse in that time.
Coming from Alice Springs, the majesty of West Mac hits you full on once you reach the outskirts of town on Larapinta drive. You can stop at Flynn’s Grave for 5-10minutes before you hit Simpson’s Gap about 15minutes out of town. I suggest allowing 45-60minutes at Simpson’s Gap. The walk in/out is maybe 10minutes each way but oh the scenery. I muttered FFO many times as I walked in and like to spend time absorbing the place hence why I suggest that timeframe at least.
Next stop is Standley Chasm, some 30 minutes out of Alice. The ideal time to visit is 12-1pm (light hitting walls at its best). Rather than walking in for 15-20minutes, taking the obligatory selfies and then walking back out again, I suggest you actually stay in the chasm for 30minutes and see the colour changing on the chasm walls. You have paid $10-20 to see it afterall. I actually spent 2-3hours here all up, finishing my time with an emu burger at the delightful cafe.
I have the luxury of working in Alice for a bit so will return to do the short walks here too.
On my first visit to the West Macs I chose to turn down the Glen Helen road but only made it as far as the next stop Ellery Creek Big Hole on that day. It’s about an hour from AS, a couple of minutes off main road and a couple of minutes walk down to the water. Again spend a good 30 minutes here if you can. There are some walks but I’ve not done those yet. I’ve visited here on a sunny day and a cloudy day and seen different perspectives on the rock faces and water. Equally spectacular. Very serene sitting beside this large body of water and just pondering awhile.
After leaving ECBH you can do Serpentine gorge (I haven’t), then the Ochre Pits (I spent 10 minutes just looking at the small ochre lined wall, no walks) before you hit Ormiston Gorge not more than 1.5hrs out of AS. If you can, spend an hour doing the many steps up to the Ghost Gum walk lookout. It is A M A Z I N G looking into the fullness of the gorge from on high. You can walk onwards and cross via water to the other side of the gorge but I didn’t. Also do the 5 minute paved walk from carpark into the gorge to sit awhile. You can’t see the fullness of the gorge from the floor but it’s still beautiful.
Another 15 minutes down the road is Glen Helen Gorge. You can get a lovely burger or salad meal between 12-2pm (drink with pie or cake etc outside these hours) and enjoy it on their deck facing the red rock walls (while +\- batting away the flies). Then walk a few minutes down along river (or pathway) through bulrushes and over some rocks to the gorge entrance. You can swim across to the other side (I didn’t) and do a short walk to see the “organ pipes” in the gorge walls.
You can continue on to Redbank Gorge from here, driving 1-2km on dirt road which is supposedly 2wd friendly and then walk 20 minutes across sandy beds to see this one. I haven’t yet.
A few minutes beyond Glen Helen Gorge is Mount Zonder lookout which overlooks the Finke River. Do go up here. Today it looked like a mirage in the distance. Just breathtaking. I’ve visited in the afternoon too and it was equally beautiful.
The road from Glen Helen around to Hermansburg is sealed and so worth doing if you have the time.
On one trip I went down to Hermansburg from AS first and around to Glen Helen. Whichever way you go, head up Tyler’s Lookout Road and look out to Tnorala , also known as Gosses Bluff or the crater as I’ve heard it called. Oh my. If you drive on another 20 minutes or so you can see Tnorala closer up and even drive in there if you have 4WD.
I did a day trip directly down Larapinta Drive to Hermansburg from AS and took the longer way back via Glen Helen one time. I love Hermansburg Precinct, it’s old buildings and the historical tea rooms with deck overlooking dry Finke River bed. You need a good few hours in this place. I shall soon be returning to do a cultural tour with Benji, Traditional Owner and I’m looking forward to it!
The drive from Hermansburg around the back way to Glen Helen is very picturesque but even if you’re not doing the longer loop, you can just go 5 minutes further down the road to see the house that Albert built (Albert Namitjira). There’s also a monument to introduce you to the landscape that inspired him just before you reach Hermansburg coming from AS.
Then there’s the East Mac ranges to visit …. Wow 👌

The range is very attractive and spreads west of Alice from the Gap.
There are many places to visit.
During our visit, we travelled 130 km to the Ormiston Gorge. When we arrived we found the road blocked of by the rangers due to an apparent dangerous condition by a fire that had been through the area a few days before. NO warning except at the turnoff!

If you want to see inland paradise, this is where you will find it. Day tours including Stanley chasm, Ormiston Gorge and Ellery creek big hole can not be missed. The area is stunning, on so many levels.

We visited the ranges in June this year in middle of a cold snap so too cold to swim in any of the amazing gorges and waterholes but we spent a whole day from dusk to dawn driving along and stopping off at all the beautiful gorges etc. A must when in Alice Springs.

The West MacDonnell Ranges provided diverse and beautiful red centre scenery and more time could have been spent there. The ranges themselves were excellent with highlights the Ormiston Gorge and Standley Chasm , a little disappointing despite the scenery.Not to be missed if in Alice Springs.

Went to Simpsons Gap which was amazing as well as Stanley Chasm the walk there was definitely worth the sight, had a look at the Ochre Pits with the beautiful colours of the rock, Mt Sonder lookout then a swim at Ormiston Gorge … then onto Ellery Creek Bighole which was glorious … You could not fault our tour guide Karen from Emu Run … food and drink included for the day.

We only had 2 nights at the Ranges and wish we had an extra night to do everything on offer.The walks are good and not long and tiring.Beautiful Gorges,creeks and stunning rock colours.Glen Helen is closed so the only fuel is as you come in from Alice Springs or at Hermansberg on the other side so if you are going for a couple of days take extra fuel.We camped at Redbank and it was lovely with fire pits,drop toilet and you really didnt see your neighbours for $4 a person per night.Bargain.You need at least 2 full days to see all on offer and to do the walks.VERY COLD at night and in the mornings so make sure you have warm clothing.Really enjoyed our time here.The maps have not been updated and still show that the ring road to Alice Springs is unsealed in some spots.Its not its sealed the whole way around and a good road.Only the Mereenie Loop Road isnt sealed and we were told it was rough so didnt go to Kings Canyon that way with our van.MAPS NEED TO BE UPDATED
