Mt Giles is about 650 m above the floor of Ormiston Pound and makes a worthwhile cross country walk (2-3 days return) from Ormiston Gorge. Experienced walkers say that watching this timeless landscape unfold with the dawn from the summit is an unforgettable experience.Mt Giles was named after one of Australia's greater explorers - Ernest Giles (1835 - 97) who led several expeditions between the Overland Telegraph Line near Alice Springs and the west coast during the 1870s.
