Visit one of the world's iconic deserts, with its famous bright red sand dunes and rich biodiversity, a trip to the Simpson will leave you with a greater appreciation of this desert environment.
The Simpson Desert contains the world's longest parallel sand dunes. These north-south oriented dunes are static, held in position by vegetation. They vary in height from 3 metres in the west to around 30 metres on the eastern side.
This river system is dated at between 400 and 450 million years old and is arguably the worlds oldest river system. The Finke cuts through ancient mountain ranges creating spectacular gorges and refreshing permanent water holes.
The area holds a rich Aboriginal culture and breathtaking scenes which inspired water colour artist Albert Namatjira to paint from his home base of Hermannsburg.

The ‘East Mac’s as the locals call them, stretch east from Alice Springs toward the Hale River and Ruby Gap Nature Reserve.
