by Myndo

The MacDonnel Ranges are a natural wall next to Alice Springs.

The "West MacDonnel National Park" consists the west of Alice Springs located part of the rough MacDonnel Ranges (2005 km2). The Ranges are about 400 km long.
They originated from Vulcanic activities and were later eroded. Rivers made deep Valleys, and the shadow allowed a lot more plants and animals to survive.
