Palm Valley
Palm Valley, located within Finke Gorge National Park is one of the most unusual places in central Australia. Here one of the most ancient rivers in the world cuts it's way through a rugged gorge, creating a valley filled with Red Cabbage Palms. These palms, for which the valley is named manage to thrive in the arid environment of Central Australia where rainfall is limited to 200mm a year. It is thought that the palms originated here back when the area enjoyed a gentler, tropical climate. You will need a high-clearance 4WD to get to Palm Valley and the journey is part of the adventure. #camping #hiking #views #photography #palmvalley
