The Eastern MacDonnell Ranges is a landscape of grandeur, rocky gorges and Aboriginal history and rock art. There are wonderful bush campgrounds, gem fossicking locations and old ghost towns to explore
The Western MacDonnell Rangers are more frequented by visitors, they are prettier, and have more gorges to visit with some incredible sights to see, plus they are so close to Alice Springs. Still, I'm certain that I prefer the Eastern MacDonnell Ranges.
We camped at the far end of it, hiking ever nook and cranny. It is all glorious country.
