Touring the Rock/water sites of Northern Territory

Another tour we did consisted of Standley Chasm which is this enormous yet quite incredibly skinny gap between 2 rocks which reach up metres & metres in the air.....it was once (millions of years ago) filled with lava but that has eroded away, leaving this unusual gap between 2 rocks. You go for about a 15 minute walk to get there but it is a lovely walk through the bush. Lots of different plant life & trees.
Simpsons Gap is another huuuuuuge gap in between mountains almost...but the mountains are all rock, you dont get many trees on the mountains in the Northern Territory. My camera battery started going dead here so i didnt risk taking any photos, despite its beauty, i wanted to save them for the remainder of the day : (
Ormiston Gorge was just amazing.
We also went to a place called "Ellory big Hole" which is a gorgeous fresh water hole with huge rocks on both sides. your skin looks yellow under the water but this is because of the freshness.
My personal favourite was Ormiston Gorge....but Ellory Big Hole was just what we needed to cool down after a hot day walking in the bush!!
