Traphina Gorge

Traphina Gorge is part of the East MacDonnell Ranges and is 85 km east of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory. While the East MacDonnell Ranges isn't visited like the West MacDonnell Range is, it still offers some very nice scenery.

Traphina Gorge is noted for its sheer quartzite cliffs and River Red Gum lined watercourses and offerers wide sandy creek beds with some water holes if you are there at the right time. The waterhole in this photo was home to hundreds if not thousands of Zebra Finches which would fly away if disturbed only to return back near the water soon after.
