  • This is a sacred place. It seems untouched by time. The rocks have been shaped by eons of wind, rain and sunlight. I just felt so peaceful, even though I was sinking up tk my ankles in some of the sandy spots! I recommend that any traveller needs to put this on their bucket list. It is a truly unforgettable place.
  • We hiked the Larapinta trail back in early July and went through Simpson gap. Not only did we see beautiful rock formation and nature, we also met a very friendly nat park ranger who took time to speak with all the visitors and point out wallabies and birds.
