General Information | Trips that go there

Haasts Bluff, also known as Ikuntji, is an Indigenous Australian community. The community is located in the MacDonnell Shire local government area, 227kilometres west of Alice Springs.

The Haasts Bluff community takes its name from the nearby outcrop, given this name in 1872 by the explorer Ernest Giles, after the New Zealand geologist, Julius von Haast.

The locality was established as a Lutheran mission in 1946 and is home to Western Arrernte, Pintupi and Pitjantjatjara people.
