Rocky Gully is a great spot to stop and set up camp along the Larapinta walking trail.
It is accessible via Section 6 of the 223 kilometre trail, which traverses expanses of exposed, wild country typical of much of Central Australia.
Along the way you will see plants and animals that have adapted to survive tough conditions. Despite the shallow soil, the vegetation is thick and predominantly shrub land. Shady trees are rare.
After trekking in a south-westerly direction, the trail descends into a steep sided gully. The Rocky Gully creek bed makes it a good place to set up camp for the night before continuing your journey on Section 6 of the Larapinta Trail.
There is no vehicle access to Rocky Gully.
Section 6 of the Larapinta Trail is graded as medium. It is a narrow track that may be rough in places, with some climbing and descending, suitable for people who walk regularly.
The Larapinta Trail is a great way to get amongst the scenery - walk an easy section or challenge yourself to hike the full 223 kilometres along the spine of the West MacDonnell Ranges from Alice Springs to Mount Sonder. Multi-day walker fees and camping fees apply. Multi-day trail use and campsites must be booked online before you arrive.
