Artist's Description

Located just 18km from Alice Springs, Simpson’s gap is one of the most prominent gaps in the West MacDonnell Ranges. It features the towering cliffs of Simpsons Range, a permanent waterhole, and opportunities to spot resident wildlife.

The Gap is a sacred site to Central Arrernte Aboriginal people, and is called Rrengetyirpe (Rrung-GAH-chip-uh – trill the double ‘r’ as in Spanish) the local language. It’s a place that’s associated with Perentie (goanna), Eagle and Rock Wallaby Dreamings.

Along the short walking track into the gap, we were lucky to see a couple of Black-footed Rock-wallabies.
