Massive geological forces created the towering red walls of Ormiston Gorge in the West MacDonnell Ranges (NT). It is a Dreaming site sacred to the Western Arrernte people who call it Kwartatuma. The Gorge’s spectacular cliffs create a conduit for rain that feeds a near-permanent waterhole. This water sustains a vital habitat for a variety of native fauna and relict plant species from a tropical past. It is an oasis of incomparable tranquility.
