Information

Finke Gorge National Park covers an area of 46,000 hectares, and includes the impressive Palm Valley. Palm Valley is home to a diverse range of plant species many of which are rare and unique to the area, including the Red Cabbage Palm for which the Park is well known.
This species of Palm is restricted to this area, having a population of around 3,000 adult plants.

The Park and nearby areas hold cultural significance to the Western Arrernte Aboriginal people as well as displaying evidence of early European settlement of central Australia.

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.
