Walking the Trail - Which way? Transfer


Deciding which way to walk is up to the individual. We suggest Redbank Gorge to Alice Springs for the following reasons:

Food drops - the cost is considerably less when done during the initial transfer plus you know exactly where the food is located.
Redbank Gorge to Alice Springs - You are walking away from the afternoon sun.

Water at Redbank Gorge - To get your walk off to the best possible start we suggest at least 10 - 12 liters of good drinking water for your stay at Redbank Gorge. There is a water tank at the Red Bank car park where you can source water however water is not available at Ridge Top or Woodlands camp grounds.

Peace of mind - with food drops done and no dead lines to meet, the only thing left is to enjoy your walk back into Alice.

The traveling time out to Redbank Gorge may also provide you with some valuable information from your driver.

Please Note: Be aware that as the trail is designed to be walked from Alice Springs to Redbank Gorge, walking it in the reverse may cause some of the route markers to be a little harder to see.

Ormiston Gorge has a beautiful scenic walk that can only be described as ‘not to be missed’. If you can find the time to explore the Ormiston Pound Walk, the natural beauty of the area will be well worth the effort.

Glen Helen. The path to Glen Helen lies 4km’s off the main trail. If you would like to stop at Glen Helen on the way to Redbank, that will give you the option of walking straight through to Ormiston Gorge from Rocky Bar Gap.
