RvTrips' review

31 Jan 2018

During a day trip from Alice Springs to the West MacDonnell Ranges we called in to look at Standly Chasm (Angkerle Aboriginal Corporation) along Larapinta drive towards Ormiston Gorge. There is a cafe at the entrance and a large covered outdoor eating area.

We paid a fee of 1$0 per head to walk the trail towards the Chasm. This is quite an easy walk with a clearly defined path. You are unable to walk all the way through the Chasm due to rock falls but you can easily see the high sandstone wall on either side.  The Chasm appears very different as various times of the day when the sun streams in – apparently an hour either side of noon creates a dramatic effect on the sheer walls – they seem to glow as the sun hits the quartzite.

The walk was about 30 minutes return – 1.2 kilometres each way.

You can camp at Standley Chasm and the fee was $15pp for the first night and $10 for subsequent nights (entry to the Chasm is included in camping fee). There are a couple of powered sites available near the toilet block. Toilets were basic but clean and there are a couple of showers available for campers – no doors only curtains.  Grassed with a picnic table and barbeque areas are provided.
