Simpson’s Gap


With an expected 32 today the plan is to get out walking early. We have decided to walk some of the famous Larapinta Trail heading out to Simpsons Gap to join the trek back towards the Telegraph Station. The whole walk is 223kms long so we are having just the smallest tastes but hope to complete it sometime in the future. The wonderful thing is that you can hop on and hop off the trail to complete sections that are suited to your walking abilities.

The extra views that are experienced are certainly worth it and add a further perspective to popular landmarks like Simpsons Gap. The higher we climb the more we enjoy the complexities of the range and yet still close enough to the powerful rock formations to appreciate the forces of nature that came together to create something amazing.

      Yes, I am going to try to get a few interested and do it as a supported walk – that way you don’t have to carry a big pack. It really is such an amazing place to walk around and there is also a bike track – it doesn’t go the whole way but it would be pretty terrific I’d imagine.
