Standley Chasm is absolutely gorgeous but way too expensive if you aren't a local. Locals get in for $1 whereas everyone else is roughly $20. The walk is only short and very much worth the stunning scenery at the end.

Great location, lovely easy walk but I think it is overpriced. For a 20 m walk to the Chasm $ 10 for NT residents it is a bit too much.

One of the 'Must Do's around Alice Springs. Definitely worth the drive, and best if you hit it around mid-day and have some time to watch the sun creep in/out of the canyon. Also, make sure to check out the second to last information sign...More

The chasm is beautiful, no doubt after you travel to visit you will stop for a look around the gift area or perhaps enjoy the scones and tea. Plenty of room and seating in well shaded deck area. The walk out to the Chasm is...More

We went out to Standley Chasm, thinking we would do the walk and have lunch. We were also impressed by the brochures stating that it was owned and run by the traditional owners. However... it was staffed only by backpackers without a TO in sight...More
