Explore one of Alice Springs’ most popular destinations via helicopter. Experience the beauty and rich landscapes of Australia’s Outback as your pilot provides informative commentary on the area. Fly over Honeymoon Gap on gum-tree-lined Roe Creek to Simpson’s gap—a high cleft in the rocky West MacDonnell Ranges. Directly above the gap, turn and track east to majestic Mount Gillin. Follow the ridgeline’s ochre-colored sandstone cliffs and be sure keep an eye out for wild kangaroos. Sprawling Alice Springs comes into view as you continue to Emily Gap—an important spiritual site to the Eastern Arrernte Aboriginal people.
