Information

The Iytwelepenty / Davenport Ranges National Park overlays a rich living cultural landscape of the Alyawarr, Wakaya, Kaytete and Warumungu traditional owners.

It is also a wonderfully remote visitor experience for adventurous four-wheel drivers wanting to see the real Territory.

Separated from other river systems, the park also provides an important refuge for waterbirds found in desert country and seven species of fish.

The Park is located south-east of Tennant Creek and can be reached by two main routes.
• via Stuart Highway, turn off at Bonney Well along Kurundi/ Epenarra road.
• via Stuart Highway, turn off at Taylor Creek along Murray Downs/Hatches Creek road. This is a slower route, but still very scenic.
The area is subject to frequent flooding during the hotter months (December to March). To find out about local road and weather conditions phone the police station at Alekerenge (Ali Curung) on (08) 8964 1959.

An alternative access to the Old Police Station Waterhole is via the ‘Frew River Loop 4WD Track,’ a demanding 17 km (2 hr) track that should only be attempted by experienced four wheel drivers. At this
Creek and the Old Police Station Waterhole. A high clearance four wheel drive is essential.
