Information

The Palm Valley campground is situated along the picturesque Palm Creek (that occasionally has a small waterhole) and is one of two areas to camp within the park (the other being Boggy hole campground – no facilities, pure bushcamping!). With approximately 15 tent sites, the campground is surprisingly shady, given the majority of the park is a sandplain wilderness and local wildlife abound in this area, particularly in the late afternoon and early mornings. Camping fees are payable on site and camping is only permitted in designated areas.

There are 4 main areas to the Palm Valley area - the Amphitheatre walking track area, a nice looking camp ground, a major picnic area with shade shelters (but none for the truck) and finally rock steps and spectacular cliffs leading to the Palm Valley carpark. You have to get out of your vehicle to see the palms and cycads and if you set off on one of the 2 available walks you'll see plenty more of these tropical plants growing thickly in the shadow of the gorge walls.

Palm Valley is a scenic place and is home to a diverse range of plant species. Many of these species are rare and unique to the area, including around 3,000 adult Red Cabbage Palms for which the Park is well known. The Park and the nearby areas hold cultural significance to the Western Arrernte Aboriginal people and there are evidence of early European settlement too.
