While on the Larapinta Trail, take a short break at Standley Chasm Angkerle, a café and gift shop serving full meals, light snacks, drinks, and ice cream. This kiosk is located inside a nature reserve owned and operated by descendants of indigenous tribes who have lived in this area for millennia. The chasm, a popular tourist destination, is a narrow, deep canyon teeming with wildlife, especially birds. A trail through the chasm, which starts at the kiosk, was also developed and built by the indigenous people. You can use the kiosk’s picnic and barbecue areas after or before you complete this short walk, but be sure to wear comfortable hiking shoes and watch your step as you climb this rocky terrain. Make Standley Chasm Angkerle a centerpiece of your West MacDonnell National Park vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our West MacDonnell National Park trip maker site.

  • Nice little cafe, still developing their lunch menu but burgers and shakes were tasty and great customer service. Worth a visit
  • Great food and service, Jada went out of her way and spoilt our friend as it was his birthday. Beautiful location and a nice change and a short 25 minutes from town.
