A complete guide to gorges of West MacDonnell Ranges

2017 was the year of canyons and gorges. Unexpectedly. It began with the Sardinian Gola di Gorropu and then rolled into my Australian adventures. Gorges continued to show up when I least foresaw. The central Australian landscape got me totally unprepared for what was waiting for me. How could have I expected that the desert would hold this many gorges and small oases which shelter the water source? Northern Territory road trip was an amazing adventure by itself, however, discovering gorges located in the MacDonnell Ranges west from Alice Springs was a definite highlight when approaching the Red Centre. I put aside 2 days to explore spectacular waterholes, gaps, gorges and everything in between. Interested in learning more about these gorges or already planning a visit?

10 photos to make you want to visit Uluru

TRAVEL DESTINATION: Ayers Rock (Uluru), Northern Territory, Australia I’ve been physically so close to the Red Centre and Ayers Rock for a while now, yet it seems it’s always slipped through my fingers. Finally, the timing was just right. I have to believe that. I didn’t try to push it but rather wanted to be ready. To be able to appreciate it more. And after all, I hoped to do it right the first time around, the whole experience, traveling and rolling towards the Uluru. Perhaps I silently didn’t want to jinx it, prolonging the waiting and choosing to live with the anticipation. I wanted to give myself time to learn how to really be thankful for every moment that would be given to me in the Red Centre.
