Location of the Ormiston Gorge carpark. Nearby Ormiston Gorge campsite offers hot showers, gas bbqs and burners, clean flush toilets etc. Popular spot for day visitors and also suitable camping for numerous nights with excellent walks in the area.

Try the Ghost Gum Walk for an hour or two and maybe spot a rock wallaby on the cliffs. Or take a hike through the gorge and Pound for a full day. Easy to spend 3 or 4 nights here and it's only a 15 min drive to the pub at Glen Helen.

The park has a number of signposted walks ranging from a short, 100 metre blindfold sensory walk (a unique way of experiencing the desert) near the Information Centre to a three day walk to Mount Giles. Perhaps the most popular, and most practical, walk is the 1-2 hour Ghost Gum Walk (so named because of the single Ghost Gum which stands like a sentinel above the gorge) which traverses the gorge and passes the near-permanent waterhole at the southern end of Ormiston Gorge.
