Larapinta Trail photos

The Larapinta Trail stretches for 223km from Alice Springs Telegraph Station west to the summit of Mount Sonder. Traveling through the remote West Macdonnell Ranges of central Australia, the trail follows ridge lines and passes through gorges, with awesome views throughout. 

Here's a few photos to inspire you to kick off planning your Larapinta Trail hike today.

Camping

Some of the most spectacular campsites on the Larapinta Trail are perched high on ridges. The sunrises, sunsets and stars are next level.

From Hilltop Lookout, on section 11 of the Larapinta Trail, you can watch the sun rise onto Mount Sonder.
