Information

Serpentine Gorge is a sacred site to Western Arrernte Aboriginal people. It’s name in Western Arrernte is Ulpma (uhlp-Mah).

The gorge is reached via a short, easy walk (1.3km/30min) that takes you into a sheltered gorge and waterhole. It is less well-known than some of the other locations in the area, so it’s a peaceful spot to spend a bit of time and you'll be sure to spot some wildlife come to water.

The Gorge is also home to several rare and endemic plant species like the Centralian flannel flower and MacDonnell Ranges cycad.
