Hermannsburg

Urban

Originally a German Lutheran mission in the 1880s, Hermannsburg retains some historic buildings including a stone church and schoolhouse giving it an unusual character. It is located on Larapinta Drive, 130 kilometres south west of Alice Springs near the entrance to Finke National Park and Palm Valley.

Hermannsburg is also known as the home of famous Aboriginal painter Albert Namatjira who captured the light and colour of the area so well. If continuing west towards Kings Canyon, Hermannsburg is the last fuel stop and outlet to purchase a Mereenie Loop Pass.
