Sleep in, a late morning start, for you! A gentle drive through the mountainous landscape of the West MacDonnell Ranges awaits you. Arrive to Hermannsburg community where over 100 years ago, Lutheran Missionaries arrived to establish a precinct where Indigenous Peoples could seek refuge. A ‘safe house’ amidst the arrival of people chasing economic development and the grab for land. The Lurtheran’s realised Western Arrarnta people had society, connection and practical ways of surviving on this country. Faith sustained many as cultures clashed. Walk in the Hermannsburg Historic Precinct among buildings which provided shelter and structure for schooling, religion and building skills toward self-sufficiency in a new society. Then travel an overland track, passing through the birth place of iconic Albert Namatjira, Owen Springs, one of the earliest Cattle Stations in Central Australia. Cross the Hugh River and into the James Ranges for an enchanting sunset at Rainbow Valley. Witness a cast of shadows dance upon a soft pink clay pan hoping to meet an ancient sandstone. Intense colours mesmerise. Home of Southern Arrernte, this is Rainbow Valley, Wurre!
