Arrente Country AL6543

Extending more than 200 km west of Alice Springs, the West MacDonnell Ranges dominate the Northern Territory’s central range country. Great folds of sedimentary rock tower over arid spinifex plains separated by narrow valleys. Ancestral tributaries of the Todd and Finke Rivers have carved through the multicoloured quartzite, clay, siltstone and coal layers, leaving sheer-walled gaps in the ranges. This range, known as Tjorita to the Arrernte people, is a photographic paradise.
