The water holes in the MacDonnell Ranges are spectacular!
Ellery Creek is part of the Finke River system, with Ellery Creek Big Hole being one of the largest permanent waterholes in the West MacDonnell National Park, offering a important source of water for the local wildlife and a popular, refreshing stop for many locals and travellers.
The Aboriginal name for Ellery Bighole is Udepata. This permanent water made it a special meeting place for the Arrernte people on the fish and honey ant dreaming trails.
