Information

Roma Gorge is a ideal location to visit during the morning but overnight camping is not allowed.

Access is along a sandy and sometimes very rocky creekbed for some 7-8+ kilometres which has corrugations, and some washaways, so this is one of the few locations where a four-wheel-drive vehicle is strongly advisable.

Further slightly west lies Tnorala (Gosse Bluff), a spectacular crater formed when a comet crashed to earth some 140 million years ago.

Local indigenous Arrernte legend tells of a baby falling to earth from the heavens at this site during the Dreamtime.
