Ellery Creek Big Hole is a popular spot in the West MacDonnell Ranges about 88 kilometres west of Alice Springs along Larapinta Drive and then turn onto Namatjira Drive (or Red Centre Way).  

We called in to look at Ellery Creek Big Hole on a day trip to see various location within the West MacDonnell Ranges. This is a permanent water hole and a very welcoming swimming spot on a hot day - it turned out to be over 40 degrees during this late October day in the Northern Territory.  Be warned that the water can be very cold in deeper parts of Ellery Creek Big Hole.

There is an emergency phone located just off the main road as you head into Ellery Creek which is very convenient for visitors.  Plenty of car parking spaces available and a number of lovely covered picnic tables - big enough to cater for a bus load of tourists who had pulled in for morning tea. 

You are able to camp at this location and it is $5 pp per night with sites available on a first in first served basis. There is an honesty box beside the camp ground where you leave your fee for the night and rangers come around regularly to check campers. This is the first time we had seen barbeques that operate on batteries charged by a solar panel - what a great idea.

A paved pathway leads all the way to the sand beside the swimming hole. The toilet block is located beside the car parking area - great facilities provided by the National Park.
