Create an itinerary including Standley Chasm Angkerle
While on the Larapinta Trail, take a short break at Standley Chasm Angkerle, a café and gift shop serving full meals, light snacks, drinks, and ice cream. This kiosk is located inside a nature reserve owned and operated by descendants of indigenous tribes who have lived in this area for millennia. The chasm, a popular tourist destination, is a narrow, deep canyon teeming with wildlife, especially birds. A trail through the chasm, which starts at the kiosk, was also developed and built by the indigenous people. You can use the kiosk’s picnic and barbecue areas after or before you complete this short walk, but be sure to wear comfortable hiking shoes and watch your step as you climb this rocky terrain. Make Standley Chasm Angkerle a centerpiece of your West MacDonnell National Park vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our West MacDonnell National Park trip maker site.

  • A very popular location in the West MacDonnell range. Be prepared to see many tourists here. There is a entry fee to enter this location (the only one in the area) but despite the need to pay it...

  • Took our 3 year old and 9 month old here. There is a nice smooth track most of the way which made it easy to walk and navigate. It also means you can take a single light pusher most of the way. Towards the end it does get rocky, but great fun for little climbers. There is also a nice cafe at the end to stop at and get some food or hot chips. Highly recommend the morning for the visit before it gets too busy.
  • An interesting natural phenomena and rock formations caused by natural events over million of years. The coffee from the cafe is nice and the gift shop managed by Aboriginal people sells some interesting items although they're quite pricey.
