Ellery Big Hole

Ellery Big Hole is the name of a waterhole not that far from Alice Springs. It's a popular wild swimming destination. This photo is taken from the path to the waterhole, which is just visible as lush vegetation mid-left.

  1. Are all these trees mostly eucalyptus?

    1. The tree in the centre and those on the right are all Eucalyptus sp. Those on the left by the waterhole are Acacia sp I think. The small tree/shrub centre right might be an Acacia too. I'm not sure what species and I can't remember exactly what the vegetation was, sorry.

    1. It didn't strike me as desolate. It's a bit of an oasis though, and beautiful. There are way more desolate places in the area.
