John Flynn Memorial

Founder of the Flying Doctor Service and the Australian Inland Mission, Reverend John Flynn made a significant contribution to the provision of critical services in the outback. One of many memorials across the Northern Territory in his honour, the John Flynn Memorial Historical Reserve located seven kilometres west of Alice Springs, is the site where he was laid to rest. Learn from your Driver Guide of his selfless vision to connect the outback community with essential services and Christianity.

Simpsons Gap

First stop, the incredible Simpsons Gap. Surrounded by towering cliffs, Simpsons Gap is one of the best known destinations in the ranges and features a number of walking tracks. Walk through Simpsons Gap to the waterhole, keeping an eye out for the elusive black-footed rock wallabies hiding among the rocks.

Angkerle (Standley Chasm)

Late morning you'll arrive at Angkerle. Here you can take a walk along the stony watercourse and take in the rich plant and birdlife along the way.
