Ormiston Gorge

General Information | Trips that go here

Ormiston Gorge showcases the spectacular geology and landforms of the MacDonnell Ranges. The Gorge has a near-permanent waterhole, estimated to be up to 14 metres deep at its southern end. The area contains an interesting variety of native fauna and flora including a number of relict plant species remaining from a tropical past. The rediscovery of the Longtailed Dunnart and the Central Rock Rat in 1997 highlights the Park as an important fauna refuge.
