Davenport Range National Park Information

The Davenport Range National Park (proposed) is an important refuge for fauna, especially water birds due to an extensive network of waterholes. At least seven species of fish are present in the many permanent waterholes which are isolated from any other river system, giving the area considerable ecological importance. The scenic Davenport Ranges have a quiet beauty making them a relaxing and attractive place for intrepid tourists and the local residents from Tennant Creek and Alice Springs wishing to get away from it all, a high clearance four wheel drive is essential.


Aboriginal associations with the area are extensive and strong. The Davenport Ranges mark the boundary between the traditional lands of the Warumungu, Alyawarre and Kaytetye people. Artefacts relating to earlier occupancy remain and 'Dreamtime' or creation stories persist among Aboriginal people who retain traditional associations with the land. The area was settled at the turn of the century and has a diverse history concerning mineral exploration and mining, pastoral development, missionary work and the establishment of government services such as a police station.

Camping is available at the Old Police Station Waterhole or Whistleduck Creek, fees apply.
