    Ormiston Gorge

    May 26, 2017 in Australia ⋅

    We chose to stay at Ormiston Gorge Campground ($20 pn) for 3 nights to explore the West MacDonnell Ranges. The gorge and its freezing cold water is like an oasis in this outback environment. The campground had hot showers, toilets and there was even a kiosk at the gorge.

    We explored the West MacDonnell Ranges including Glen Helen Resort, The Ochre Pits, Serpentine Gorge, and Ellery Creek Big Hole. We're all a bit weary from the numerous hikes we've done, but we've accessed some amazing lookouts, gorges, ridges and ranges.

    Warm during the day...12-29°

    That day we made multiple stops. Our first one was Orminston Gorge where we did a short walk to a big pool where we had a swim in the freezing cold water. The next stop was the Ochre Pits which was a wall of coloured ochre that aborigines still use today. And last of all our final stop Serpintine Gorge. There was 2 walks there, one of them was to a look-out and the other one to the gorge. We did the one to the look-out first, which had scenic views of the MacDonnell Rangers. Then we did the walk to the gorge. Even though it was the smallest gorge it was probably the nicest.
    That night we camped at Hugh River. We had a "party" because it was the longest we had been out of civilisation at that point.
