Iytwelepenty / Davenport Ranges National Park

National Parks and Reserves

A place of quiet beauty, the Iytwelepenty / Davenport Ranges National Park encompasses 1,120 square kilometres of the Davenport Ranges, east of Alice Springs. The park is bordered by the pastoral leases of Elkedra, Kurundi, Murray Downs, and Singleton Stations and the Anurrete Aboriginal Land Trust.

Explore via one of the many walking tracks within the park. See the Amelia Creek crater, an eroded remnant of a former impact crater. Pitch a tent at one of two camping spots, and have a swim at the Old Police Station Waterhole. This Waterhole 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 with 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.
