West MacDonnell National Park, 644 km (400 mi) long, is a series of mountain ranges in the center of Australia, containing a number of gaps and gorges. In many locations along the range, you can see ancient aboriginal art. bushwalking trails vary in distance. For example, the Larapinta Trail is 223 km (139 mi) long and runs along the backbone of the range. You can also take a one-hour or half-day journey aboard the so-called "ship of the desert," a camel-riding experience through the scenic Ilparpa Valley. For a view from above, hire a helicopter to fly you over the most notable red quartzite rock formations, some of which are over 300 million years old.
