Serpentine Gorge is a narrow gap in the West MacDonnell Ranges, 100 kilometres west of Alice Springs.In dry times, the waterholes in the surrounding area dry up, leaving Serpentine Gorge waterhole the only remaining waterhole in a large area. Birds will move in from the surrounding countryside and can easily be observed by sitting quietly by the edge of the waterhole.The site of the Carpet Snake Dreaming, some areas in the Gorge and western cliffs have special significance to the Western Arrernte custodians.From this point you can walk further along the river bed (if dry) to the other end of the gorge. An alternative lookout trail can be accessed before the entrance to the gorge on the eastern wall and gives a good vantage to look out along the expanse of this wonderful gorge opening.
