There is a lot to explore at Kings Canyon this morning as we take a spectacular Hike. It is then on to Glen Helen where we camp for the night. There is time in the evening for a swim in the nearby waterhole or a relaxing beer overlooking the Finke River. (BLD)

Day Four - Western MacDonnell National Park to Alice Springs

Today we visit Hermannsburg a mission and Aboriginal community famous for it's art and crafts. Then bring on the adventure as we hit the 4WD tracks of the Finke River to the remote Palm Valley. Enjoy the scenery of the West MacDonnell Ranges as we make our way back to Alice Springs. (BL)
