Ormiston Gorge - West MacDonnell NP


Ormiston Pound is a ring of mountains punctuating the MacDonnell Ranges, in the West MacDonnell National Park, approximately 135 kilometres west of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory, Australia. It lies at roughly the half way point in the celebrated Larapinta Trail and offers spectacular views from its circumference of Mount Sonder, Gosses Bluff crater and the surrounding range.

Ormiston Gorge is a lovely place to visit in the West MacDonnell Ranges National Park. This was one of our stops during the day trip from Alice Springs to explore this part of the Northern Territory. A beautiful swimming hole just a short walk from the car parking area. This is a near-permanent waterhole estimated to be up to 14 metres deep at its southern end. 

There is a viewing platform up on the side of the gorge but unfortunately we did not have enough energy for the climb – it was 39 degrees and we had already done plenty of walking.  A short walk around the bend from the main gorge and you will be treated to magnificent view of the surrounding cliffs. 

This is a beautiful spot and well worth a visit about 135 kilometres west of Alice Springs along Namatjira Drive. 

Ormiston gorge has a great camping ground  with showers and flush toilets and a number of gas barbeques scatted throughout the parking area. The gas barbeques not only have a flat plate but two burners for pans and kettles. These were all very clean.  There is also a kiosk at this site for food, coffee and cold drinks.
