Simpson's Explorer

Fly to the edge of wilderness country traversing all three mountain ranges of the West MacDonnell Range.

Crossing the Larapinta Trail, you'll explore Simpsons Gap before tracking to Mt Gillen, the highest point in this range and part of the ancient Aboriginal legend of the dog spirit ancestor 'Uk-nool-ya'.

Then penetrating deep into the East MacDonnell Range, you reach Emily Gap, a significant place in Caterpillar Dreaming to the local Arrernte people. This flight offers also great views on Alice Springs township.

The flight duration is approximately 35 minutes.
