Starting from the car park at the end of Redbank Gorge Road, Mount Zeil, this walk takes you up to the summit of Mount Sonder via the Larapinta Trail Section 12, visiting Mount Sonder Lookout along the way. This track may challenge you with its gradual incline and the lack of shade, but the views you’ll get at the summit may last you a lifetime. Being able to see tens of kilometres in all directions really is an experience like no other. Take in the vast scenery and try to identify the surrounding peaks as you rest and enjoy some food. The track is well-maintained and features reflective markers for you to spot them easier. In fact, most people go for sunrise hikes and enjoy the night sky full of stars as they make it up there. You can stay at the Sonder Camp midway and make this a multi-day walk as well. As aforementioned, the track is quite exposed so try to start as early as possible and wear a hat. Bring lots of food and water, and bring layers of clothing in colder parts of the year. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from Palm Valley Campground, Namatjira, this circuit walk takes you into a gorge along Palm Creek, exploring the arid land of Finke River National Park along the way. Getting its name from the Red Cabbage Palms it’s home to, this part of the desert is unique in terms of flora. The said palms are only found here and some of them are more than 300 years old. There are also heaps of cycads and the occasional Ghost Gum along the track. The track is generally undulating and there are mattings placed by the rangers on the soft parts of the sand for better traction. The said rangers offer interactive events/activities from May to October which are a great way to socialize and learn more about the area. Keep in mind that there’s very little shade along the track. A 4WD vehicle with good clearance is required to get to the starting point. The road/track may be inaccessible after heavy rainfall, so check road conditions beforehand. You can use the commercial tours to come from Alice Springs if you don’t own a 4WD vehicle. The track can be started from the end of the 4WD road/track as well, shortening the loop. Let us begin by acknowledging the Western Arrernte people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Walk

Starting from the dirt carpark/campground off Devils Marbles Road, Davenport, this walk takes you on a relatively bigger circuit in the Karlu Karlu / Devils Marbles Conservation Reserve via the Nurrku Walk Track. Karlu Karlu is the Aboriginal term for ‘round boulders’, and that is what you’re going to see as you make your way through the reserve. Not just any round boulders though, these granite boulders are placed on top of each other in such a way that you’ll think that is not naturally possible. Especially the huge ones that look like they can roll off any second and the cleanly split-in-half ones. The place is known internationally and is generally busy due to the uniqueness of it. Take your time and read the informative signposts to learn more about the history of the area, why it’s called Devils Marbles and how the rocks were formed. Please be respectful and refrain yourself from climbing the historic boulders as they are spiritually and culturally important to the land’s traditional Aboriginal owners. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
