While On Your Cruisetour
What's better than massive rocks? Massive rocks at sunset. Get your camera ready for an evening at the "Olgas." These vibrantly colored domed rocks take on an absolutely majestic hue as the sun goes down.
Fun Things to Do
- Soak up more Aboriginal history and culture on a walking ancestral tour of the desert land.
- Fire up the barbie! Be treated to an authentic gourmet barbecue dinner in a dramatic desert setting.
It's not a real trip to the desert without a camel ride. Or at least a visit to the Camel Museum. Just be sure to check out the really cool Arid Australian Reptile display while you're there.
- Feel young again with a visit to the Ewaninga Rock Carvings Conservation Reserve. Here you'll see abstract carvings and animal tracks that date back 300 generations.
- Take a short trip to the MacDonnell Ranges, where you'll find stunning cliffs and chasms, as well as sun-soaked gorges for swimming.
