Explore Palm Valley on this day tour from Alice Springs, travelling through tough off-road terrain seeing the raw uncorrupted beauty of nature, from the comfort of an air-conditioned luxury coach. This custom-designed 4WD vehicle will take you to places that are difficult to access in a regular vehicle.
The Central Australian landscape has many impressive natural formations and the first one you’ll see is the Amphitheatre. Witness the magic of this impressive group of red sandstone formations as the sun rises, lending an amazing glow of light and colour across this vast landscape.
The next destination for the day is Palm Valley, an incredible outback oasis that supports a diverse range of plant species. Rife with red cabbage palms, it’s no secret how the valley got the name. Small sections of spring-fed pools ensure the survival of plant life in this valley, despite the harsh conditions. Explore this unusual landscape riddled with enormous rock formations, gorges and endless palm trees.
As you approach lunch time, it’s time for a picnic in a 46,000 hectare national park. The Finke Gorge National Park is noted for its ancient palms and also holds great cultural significance to the Arrarnta people, who are the local custodians of the land. You can also see the remains of one of the early European settlements in the region.
Get a feel of ancient life at Hermannsburg Aboriginal Community where you get to know the Arrarnta people better. Known as ‘Ntaria’, it is the birthplace of the famous Aboriginal artist Albert Namatjira, and has a rich indigenous art collection. Wander amidst the amazing artwork and the historic buildings, before heading back to Alice Springs.
