Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Northern Territory / Red Centre / West MacDonnell National Park / Standley Chasm Angkerle
While on the Larapinta Trail, take a short break at Standley Chasm Angkerle, a café and gift shop serving full meals, light snacks, drinks, and ice cream. This kiosk is located inside a nature reserve owned and operated by descendants of indigenous tribes who have lived in this area for millennia. The chasm, a popular tourist destination, is a narrow, deep canyon teeming with wildlife, especially birds. A trail through the chasm, which starts at the kiosk, was also developed and built by the indigenous people. You can use the kiosk’s picnic and barbecue areas after or before you complete this short walk, but be sure to wear comfortable hiking shoes and watch your step as you climb this rocky terrain. Make Standley Chasm Angkerle a centerpiece of your West MacDonnell National Park vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our West MacDonnell National Park trip maker site.

The hike to the chasm was very sunny (not much shade), and there are placards (sign posts) along the trail. The chasm was okay, but we liked Simpsons Gap better. Be sure to check our the beautiful...

The chasm is better in the adverts it’s not very deep so once you e seen it that’s it- it doesn’t go back far and the walk to get to it isn’t that impressive either. Infact there was a big generator..... more

A truly magnificent Chasm, best seen at midday, when the Sun is directly over the top. The colours of the walls are changing. Costs 12 dollars to do the walk. But the funds are directed into a Cafe & facilities run by the local indigenous. Great place to visit in the West MacDonnell Ranges.
Took our 3 year old and 9 month old here. There is a nice smooth track most of the way which made it easy to walk and navigate. It also means you can take a single light pusher most of the way. Towards the end it does get rocky, but great fun for little climbers. There is also a nice cafe at the end to stop at and get some food or hot chips. Highly recommend the morning for the visit before it gets too busy.
