When the opportunity to go camping for a few days came up, I didn't hesitate. Camping beside the Howqua River in the Alpine National Park was an absolute joy. The weather was perfect and the water was clean and clear and wonderful to swim in. We were visited daily by a range of parrots and other bird species, lizards and snakes in the morning and frogs by night. Once again, my love for the outdoors is reaffirmed!Read More
The West MacDonnell Ranges are like a necklace strung with jewels of prime wildlife watching spots. Many of the turn offs have dedicated camping areas, like Serpentine Gorge, but all get better the further you walk from the road. Serpentine Gorge does not always hold a lot of water, but after decent rain it is transformed and becomes a beacon for wildlife.
