The Finke River is one of the world's oldest watercourses. The Finke flows south from here for 650km to be lost in the sands of the Simpson Desert. Over many millions of years, the river and its tributaries have carved out the rugged landscape it passes through. The Western Aranda name for the Finke River is Tjoritja urlpaya.

The Mt Sonder Lookout is a great spot to view the Finke River below as pictured and where there is a 4x4 accessible track into the river where paid campsites are located (National Park camping fees apply). See Nearby Places for the camp listing.
