The West Macs

Logo for Finke Gorge

Finke Gorge National Park is yet another gem to be discovered in the West Macs. The park covers an area of 460 square kilometres but its highlights are Palm Valley and the Amphitheatre. Palm Valley is a remnant of the rain forests that once covered our ancient continent and now acts as the last niche for a diverse range of plant species. One of these is the Red Cabbage Palm, which is only found within the park and has a population of only around 3,000 individual plants. So please be careful where you step! The strange formations of the Amphitheatre are also worth viewing and are a favourite subject for visiting artists. But a short walk along some of the well-marked trails around Palm Valley will be rewarding for anyone.
