Standley Chasm - the jewel of the Arrernte/Central desert region, 50kms west of Alice Springs, surrounded by MacDonnell Ranges National Park.

Standley Chasm Angkerle Atwatye is regarded as a "must see" spectacular geological and significant cultural icon of Central Australia.
Surrounded by the West MacDonnell Ranges National Park, it's located in a private flora and fauna reserve owned by the Iwupataka Land Trust,
A unique Aboriginal Owned & Operated enterprise, Angkerle Aboriginal Corporation is owned by the local Community members who are direct descendants of the Western Arrernte Aboriginal people, that have lived in this area for tens of thousands of years.

Walking access to the dramatic 80m sheer rock-face of the chasm is along a well maintained trail (1.2km/10mins each way), following the natural creek bed with seating & interpretative signage.

Angkerle Atwatye “the Gap of Water” is a striking geological formation that has significant botanical, bird-watching & wildlife photography appeal. It is an important cultural site for Western Arrernte women and now provides a backdrop for authentic cross-cultural presentations, bush tucker tours, art workshops & language classes.
