Situated in Tjoritja, also known as the West MacDonnel National Park, the trail includes many sites sacred to the Arrernte Aboriginal people, with highlights along the track including Simpson's Gap, Ormiston Gorge, Ellery Creek Big Hole, Mount Sonder and more. 

The diversity along the Larapinta includes nearly 600 species of flora, native wildlife and fascination geological formations,and offers an exceptional chance to experience Australia's outback wilderness. Picture meandering through spacious gaps and sheltered gorges, rugged ranges, swimming in cool waterholes and sleeping under the stars... There's no doubt that the beauty and grandeur of the Larapinta trail will stay with you long after you visit Australia's red centre.
