Hard track
Starting from the campsite along Finke River, Macdonnell, this walk takes you to Redbank Gorge via the Larapinta Trail (Section 11), passing through Rocky Bar Gap along the way. This is the eleventh section of the 223km long Larapinta Trail. As you get closer to Mount Sonder (considering you’re coming from the east) it becomes more detailed and stunning. The Hilltop Lookout offers you 360-degree views over the surrounding land. Spend the night here if you’d like to see what Mt Sonder looks like as the sun rises, or make camp at Rocky Bar Gap to have access to water tanks and toilets. The gradient is quite harsh around the lookout yet the track is well made and maintained. Keep in mind that there is no vehicle access to the Finke River trailhead and only high clearance 4WD access to Redbank Gorge trailhead. Also, the camping area at Redbank Gorge requires a fee of $5 per person. Let us begin by acknowledging the Arrernte people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
