A place of quiet beauty, the Iytwelepenty / Davenport Ranges National Park encompasses 1,120 square kilometres of the Davenport Ranges, north-east of Alice Springs. The park is bordered by the pastoral leases of Elkedra, Kurundi, Murray Downs, Singleton Station and the Anurrete Aboriginal Land Trust.
See the Amelia Creek crater, an eroded remnant of a former impact crater. Pitch a tent at one of three camping spots – camping fees apply and campsites must be booked online before you arrive. Enjoy a swim at the Old Police Station Waterhole which can be reached via Kurundi/ Epenara (high clearance vehicle required) or alternatively via the Taylor’s Creek track (four-wheel drive vehicle required). Four-wheel drive enthusiasts can test their skills on some very demanding tracks. Look for water birds in this important refuge, and discover the ecological importance of this network of waterholes.
Learn about the strong and extensive Aboriginal associations within the area. The Davenport Ranges mark the boundary between the traditional lands of the Warumungu, Alyawarre and Kaytetye people. Artefacts relating to earlier occupancy remain and ‘Dreamtime’ or creation stories remain strong among Aboriginal people who retain traditional associations with the land.
