Starting from the car park at the end of Standley Chasm Road, Hugh, this walk takes you into the Standley Chasm and back partially via the Larapinta Trail Section 3, exploring the creek bed and vertical rock faces along the way. It goes without saying that the best time to do this walk is around noon, where the chasm is hit by the sunlight just right and create epic red/orange views that’ll warm you up inside. The 3-metre wide chasm is also known as ‘Angkerle Atwatye’, which means ‘Gap of Water’. You can run across multiple bird species, wallabies and lizards as you make your way through the creek bed. Keep in mind that you need to buy tickets from the kiosk for access. Wear grippy shoes as it is a little bit rocky underfoot. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
