Glen Helen



Glen Helen is a working cattle station and a tourist resort that caters to visitors that want to truly immerse themselves in the West Macs. The permanent water hole at Glen Helen Gorge is home to many species of animals, including water birds and fish. Glen Helen provides a perfect base from which to explore the West Macs region. For the traditional owners of the land though this inviting swimming spot is off limits. They believe it is the home of an ancient and powerful Rainbow Serpent. The landscape around Glen Helen is as spectacular as you will find anywhere in the West Macs, and includes views of the much-painted Mount Sonder, which is one of the highest points in Central Australia.
