On the way back towards Alice Springs we stopped at the last place for swimming., Big Hole Ellery Creek, about 90 km from the city. Это место, formed as a result of thousands of years of flooding, known to the locals of Arrernte as Udepata and is one of the many sacred sites in the Western MacDonnell Range.

The water here has become colder, and swimming here is not as comfortable as on the Finke River in the Glen Helen Gorge, but for those, who wants to stay dry, it's the perfect place for a picnic, as well as a great opportunity to take pictures.



Walk along the Dolomite Chain, on a 3-kilometer circular hiking trail, gives an incredible insight into geological history and offers breathtaking views.
