Ormiston Gorge – West MacDonnell National Park

Ormiston Gorge was the subject of several paintings by famous Aboriginal artist Albert Namatjira, who was born at the nearby Lutheran mission of Hermannsburg. The scenery at Ormiston Gorge is classically Australian, with orange cliffs soaring to 300 metres, sheltering a deep waterhole reflecting the eucalypts on its banks. You can swim in the waterhole, although like all waterholes in this area, it is normally icy cold. Other gorges to visit nearby are Serpentine Gorge, Glen Helen Gorge and Redbank Gorge.
