Heading east from Alice Springs, you take the Ross Highway. You'll see the following points of interest (in order):

  • Jesse Gap
  • Emily Gap
  • Corroboree Rock
  • John Hayes Rock Hole
  • 'Trephina Gorge

At this point there's a 4WD turnoff which cuts north, allowing access to

  • Ruby Gap Nature Park
  • Arltunga - Gold Mining ghost town, 4WD track only, hotel, a camp area and a tourist centre, hands on display about the area and gold mining. You can visit the old township and surrounds.

Eventually the northern dirt track meets up with another track heading east-west from Stuart Highway. If you choose to follow on Ross River instead of cutting north, you come to

  • N'Dhala Gorge
  • Ross River Homestead - also home to the resort
