Simpsons Gap, Alice Springs, NT

Simpsons Gap is a scenic gorge near Alice Springs with a large waterhole. The water has cut its way through the mountain range over a very long time leaving a canyon with sheers rocky cliffs on either site. The swimming hole is in the shade for most of the day and it is a nice place to cool off in summer. Simpsons Gap is a very popular tourist location and bus loads of people arrive here throughout the day.
