Corroboree Rock Conservation Reserve

Corroboree Rock is an impressive dolomite structure located 42 Kms east of Alice Springs.

The impressive grey dolomite rock formation and an enveloping silence makes for a memorable bushwalk or contemplative moment. The rock is part of the Bitter Springs formation that was deposited in salt lakes 800 million years ago.

This place is of great cultural significance to the Arrernte people.

“Corroboree” itself is a term used to describe Aboriginal ceremonies involving gathering, ceremony, songs and dances. (The word Corroboree is actually comes from the Eora peoples (eastern NSW) but has since become an accepted term that is used widely across Australia).

The Corroboree Rock Conservation Reserve, which is part of the East MacDonnell Ranges, is equipped with a toilet and picnic area, but camping is not allowed.
