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.
