Palm Valley camping area
The main campground has good facilities and is 22 km south of Hermannsburg. You will need to bring your own firewood or use the gas BBQs. Many sites are under trees along Palm Creek, which usually has some water in it but does not often flow. A short walk from the campsite leads to Kalaranga Lookout, which is spectacular at sunset.

This campsite is located in Finke Gorge National Park
The highlight of this beautiful park of red rock and the often dry Finke River is the hidden gorge of Palm Valley, where rare red cabbage palms flourish. Campers may also see rock wallabies and plentiful birdlife. The park is 138 km west of Alice Springs; turn south off Larapinta Dr just west of Hermannsburg. A 4WD is necessary to get into the park, and the track may be impassable after rain.
