West MacDonnell Ranges N.P. - Glen Helen
Commentaires The West Macs :
Glen Helen was formally a cattle station but is now a tourist resort
that caters to visitors that want to truly immerse themselves in the West Macs.
Part of the former Glen Helen Station still exists, west of Redbank Gorge.
The permanent waterhole at Glen Helen Gorge is home to many species of animals,
including a variety of water birds and fish.
Glen Helen provides a perfect base from which to explore the West Macs region.
For the traditional owners of the land though this inviting swimming spot is off limits.
They believe it is the home of an ancient and powerful Rainbow Serpent.
The landscape around Glen Helen is as spectacular as you will find anywhere
with a towering sandstone wall greeting you as you arrive.
The area includes views of the much-painted Mount Sonder, which is one of the highest points in Central Australia,
changing colours dramatically throughout the day.
