Milky way above Rainbow Valley near Alice Springs

Rainbow Valley

惊叹于名副其实的彩虹谷的古老景观 - 砂岩断崖和带有裸露彩色岩石带的悬崖。

这些独立的悬崖构成了詹姆斯山脉的一部分,是摄影师们最喜欢的主题,他们在黎明或黄昏时捕捉到它们各种形状和颜色,此时彩虹般的摇滚乐队被突出显示。

该保护区拥有丰富的土著占领证据,包括岩石雕刻或岩画和绘画以及磨石和石制工具碎片,尤其是在山丘和山脊周围。

砂岩悬崖上的彩色岩带是由水造成的。砂岩的红铁在旱季溶解并被吸引到地表。这种深红色的顶盖坚硬且风化缓慢,而下方较软的白色砂岩则迅速侵蚀成松散的沙子。风化和侵蚀也是造成山谷形状的原因,其中砂岩块被侵蚀成岩面和方形塔。

两个指定的露营区允许露营。需要支付露营费用,并且必须在抵达前在线预订露营地。
