First gap east of Alice Springs, just 15 km from town. Take a short stroll or go rock-climbing.
The Emily & Jessie Gaps in the Heavitree Range are the first features you come to on your trip into the East MacDonnell Ranges. They contain interesting Aboriginal paintings and are important spiritual sites to the Eastern Arrernte Aboriginal people. Emily Gap (Anthwerrke) is a registered sacred site. A large rock painting depicts the caterpillar dreaming. Please respect the site and do not touch any Aboriginal art.The first European sighting of Emily and Jessie Gap was in 1871. It was thought that ‘Emily’ and ‘Jessie’ were the daughters of Sir Charles Todd, but this was found to be untrue. The basis on which the names are derived is unknown.

Located 10 km east of Alice Springs, this location is reached via an easy 15 minute drive along the sealed Ross Highway. No camping. Short walking trail into the gap. Toilets.
