The Larapinta Trail is an exciting long distance walking track through the West MacDonnell National Park in the heart of central Australia. The Trail runs for 223 kilometres along the backbone of the West MacDonnell Ranges from Alice Springs to Mt Sonder. The grandeur and timeless beauty of the Ranges are the backdrop and setting for the Trail, which is divided into twelve sections, providing walkers with an opportunity to experience an ancient landscape at their own pace.
The Trail crosses a variety of terrain, from high exposed ridge lines with spectacular views, to lush sheltered gorges that are home to many of the arid zone’s rare plants. Each section of the Trail has its own character and appeal, and different sections are suitable for different levels of experience. The Trail also links the Park’s attractions, using these as access points where walkers may start or end their adventure. Walkers can join or leave the Trail at a number of points accessible to motor vehicles at regular intervals along its route. In effect, it comprises a series of shorter sections, each a one or two day walk, this way people can choose the length of time spent on the Trail.
There is a watertank provided at each Trailhead and at the main campgrounds. Within each section, recommended spots for camping are identified, but not all have facilities provided. The Trail is signposted with direction markers, especially at major track junctions, crossing points and other possible points of confusion. Detailed maps and trail notes are available from Parks and Wildlife Service.
Standley Chasm is not part of the West MacDonnell National Park and an entry fee applies.
