Wallaby Gap

National Parks and Reserves

Wallaby Gap is a sandy creek bed shaded by walls of red rock in the West MacDonnell Ranges. Named after its population of Black-footed Rock-wallabies, it is also located along Section 1 of the Larapinta Trail, a 223 kilometre walking track through the ranges.

The gap is also a rewarding place to sit and watch for birds – a temporary pool inside the gap commonly attracts White-plumed honeyeaters, Zebra finches, Pied butcherbirds and Crested pigeons. The deep, narrow passage was created by a small watercourse carving through the tough gneiss before draining into Roe Creek.

The campground is located about 300 metres south of Wallaby Gap, but camping is permitted only for walkers on the Larapinta Trail. Vehicle access is also for Larapinta Trail walkers only – a key is available for the locked gate from the Visitor Information Centre on Gregory Terrace in Alice Springs.
