Standley Chasm Waterhole

Standley Chasm Waterhole


Known traditionally as Angkerle Atwatye, meaning “Gap of Water”, Standley Chasm is a 3-metre-wide, 80-metre-high gorge amongst the West MacDonnell Ranges in Central Australia..


Once a narrow tributary of the Finke River system, persistent rainfall and flooding of a lusher bygone era has intricately carved the sandstone slopes. Either side bears the jagged, craggy impressions created over untold millions’ of years to dramatic and picturesque effect.


The magnificent display of bold red and orange hues glow deepest under the midday sun, though morning and afternoon visitors are more likely to catch a glimpse of the native wildlife which abound.

A natural spring nearby brings out an unlikely abundance of life to the arid-climate area.
