RvTrips' review

04 Jun 2016

The Ochre Pits are one of the suggested stopping places when you explore the West MacDonnell Ranges National Park in the Northern Territory. We headed west from Alice Springs on a day trip and stopped at various location on our journey along Namatjira Road.  

This is clearly signpost from the main road and has a good car parking area with shaded picnic tables and toilets provided for visitors. We had our salad rolls in the shade and were lucky enough to be visited by a couple of Fairy Wrens. These looked like Splendid Fairy Wrens and were searching for food – very small and looked like they were babies.

It is just a short walk along a paved path to the viewing platform for the Ochre Pits. You also walk down to the river bed for a closer view of the cliffs but are asked not to touch and of the Ochre. This is quite fascinating to see so many colours in one spot – no wonder it has been used by Aboriginal people for thousands of years for decoration.
