Four Day Larapinta and Red Centre Walk

Day One

2-4 kms (easy- moderate) approx. 1-2 hours walking

We start our day with pick up in Alice Springs and then head to the Alice Springs Desert Park to gain an understanding of the environment, plants and animals we will see during our four-day walking tour.

Then we head off to stunning Standley Chasm where we will enjoy some lunch and then head out for a walk.

There are two walks at Standley Chasm. The first is a 40 minute return walk through the rocky and shaded gorge. The rare MacDonnell Ranges Cycads are common in the special, sheltered gorge and Black-footed rock wallabies are also common. The walls blaze with reds and oranges as the sun hits the chasm walls, which is particularly spectacular around midday but equally stunning at other times of the day.

The second walk is one hour return and it takes you up into one of the valley spurs for great views both east and west of the range. This walk was developed by local Aboriginal people.

We will then check into accommodation at Lasseter Hotel Alice Springs, nibbles provided by Park Trek and drinks (own expense) in the outdoor bar area next to pool, where you may also want to take a dip.

Followed by two-course set menu in hotel restaurant.

Day Two

10-16kms (moderate) approx. 6-8 hours walking

Today we start with a continental breakfast in the garden/pool area and the group will to make sandwiches for lunch and pack trail mix and fruit.

For our walking today we follow arguably the best section of the Larapinta Trail. The walk begins at Serpentine Dam and we enjoy lunch atop Counts Lookout which afford magnificent views.

While this is a challenging section the pace of the walking with only small backpacks is gentle and steady enabling you to absorb your surrounds. The ridge line walk from Counts Point to Serpentine Gorge is absolutely stunning with huge views looking north and south as well as along the spine of the West Mac’s.

We also have a softer walking option for those who are not keen on the ascent which includes walking from the Ochre Pits out across a gently undulating trail that sits underneath the steep surrounds of the nearby ranges.

Return to Lasseter Hotel Alice Springs, nibbles and drinks followed by two-course meal in restaurant and overnight stay.

Day Three

16kms walking (moderate) approx. 8 hours of walking

After breakfast and lunch making we set out on one of the most exciting walks on the trip. After a drive to Red Bank Gorge we start the ascent of one of the most stunningly beautiful and rewarding walks in the Western MacDonnell Range. Mount Sonder lies at the end and final stage of the Larapinta trail and offers one of the most amazing summit views in Central Australia.

The walk follows a well-worn path to the ridge line before traversing to the summit itself. From here you will witness a simply breathtaking view over the entire length of the MacDonnell Ranges.

Return to Lasseter Hotel Alice Springs, nibbles and drinks followed by two-course meal in restaurant and overnight stay.

Day Four

2 kms walking (easy) approx. 1 hour of walking

After breakfast and lunch making we check out.

This morning we head to Simpsons Gap and take the 1.5km Cassia Hill Walk. This lovely trail takes about one hour and features interesting native flora and great views. The walk winds up a small, rocky hill that gives an excellent elevated view of the surrounding mountain ranges and Simpsons Gap.

We will then visit the Olive Pink Botanic Gardens where we can stroll through 16 hectares of themed plantings and surrounding bushland where you’ll find over 250 central Australian plant species, not to mention the black-footed rock wallaby, western bowerbirds, and a multitude of butterflies and birds.

We finish the day on a cultural note with a trip to the amazing Araluen Arts Centre. Here we get a glimpse into the art, culture and heritage of Central Australia, and meet some of the local Arrernte identities that helped develop the region. Including the Albert Namatjira Gallery which exhibits a selection of paintings by this famous artist, his descendants and contemporaries. It also includes some early Papunya boards showing the emergence of western desert dot painting and contemporary trends in Aboriginal art.
