Wild Dog Country Tour
West MacDonnell Ranges & Hermannsburg
Journey into Wild Dog Country through the gateway of the West MacDonnells with woodland valleys afoot. Your eyes drawn to soaring birds on thermals getting high. Imagine, the Ranges were once as high as the Himalayas. Giant caterpillars crawl upon the brilliant orange quartzite ridge tops. Arrive to an Indigenous community where the people of Western Arrarnta and other Countries strongly uphold their cultural identity living in and along side modern society. White washed colonial buildings tell of the arrival. A cottage garden, herbs and fruit trees now thrive with modern irrigation. From a by gone era to now, together with an Indigenous Guide, learn of another state, on Country. A natural state created by great ancestors’ adventures. Ponder, appreciate, perhaps swim with darting fish in a wet stretch of the ancient Finke River to which only you and the Guide has access. Discover Wild Dog Country!
