Found just a short drive from Alice Springs on a sealed road, the West Macs are definitely worth a visit!
You could day trip out from Alice, but we recommend spending a few nights out there to really make the most of it.
There are plenty of fantastic camping options, including this great free camp we stayed at here
Our favourite gorge was Redbank Gorge, and we also loved the Meteorite crater out at Gosse Bluff. It was nice and hot for us, but fortunately there's plenty of swimming holes to cool down. And we got some stunning lightning shows each night!
