Perched above the Finke River 130 km’s west of Alice Springs in the stunning West MacDonnell Ranges, Glen Helen Homestead Lodge offers an authentic outback holiday experience. With a range of accommodation options including en suite motel rooms, bunkhouse beds, fixed tents and powered and unpowered campsites Glen Helen Homestead Lodge is an ideal stop on your red center holiday.

A destination in its own right, Glen Helen boasts easy day trip access to the whole West MacDonnell National Park including Palm Valley, Hermansburg, Ormiston Gorge, Redbank Gorge and the internationally renowned Larapinta Trail. Prefer a laid back view and a little local knowledge, why not join one of our outback four wheel drive tours?

Enjoy a cold beer at the bar before dining in the Namatjira Gallery Restaurant or cook your own barbeque while enjoying the sunset over the stunning cliffs of the Glen Helen Gorge.

In winter relax in front of a cosy fireplace and in summer laze by the swimming pool or one of the many natural waterholes.

Scenic helicopter flights offer a birds eye view of the area and a short walk is often rewarded with sightings of our local wildlife including many bird species, rock wallabies, dingoes, lizards and an array of wildflowers.

After dark enjoy the sounds of our talented in house musicians playing in the homestead 5 nights a week April through November or enjoy the fantastic star gazing opportunities offered by the low light of the Northern Territory outback.

After your stay at Glen Helen, travel on southwest along the Mereenie Loop Road and visit the spectacular Kings Canyon and Australia’s iconic rock – Uluru.
