|Location||Burt Plain, Northern Territory|
It comprises two gorges created by a south flowing creek which has cut through two ridges of Heavitree Quartzite. The gorge is home to some rare Central Australian plants such as the Centralian flannel-flower and cycads (the Macrozamia macdonnellii). There is a semi-permanent waterhole guarding the entrance to the gorge.
There is a 1.3 kilometre walk along a service road, or alternatively along the creek bed, to the gorge, and a short steep climb to a lookout.
Nearby are the ruins of Serpentine Chalet which was a late 1950s/early 1960s Ansett-Pioneer tourist venture. Lack of water and the remote location on an unsealed road brought about its demise. All that remains now are a concrete slab and other floor foundations.
