Salt Lakes (Salt Pan) of Central Australia – SKU 7/70
One of the many salt lakes, or playas, in the arid zone of central Australia. Photographed from an aircraft this shinning white salt lake is set amongst endless longitudinal sand dunes and is just one of the hundreds of lakes that make up the Peera Peera Poalawanna lake system in the south eastern Simpson Desert. These salt lakes are remnants of earlier fresh water lakes.

It is sacred land for the traditional inhabitants. The Olgas is listed as a World Heritage Area and as a UNESCO site for both its natural and cultural heritage.

Standley Chasm – West MacDonnell Ranges, Northern Territory
Standley Chasm (Angkerle) is Aboriginal Land and is part of the Iwupataka Land Trust and is bordered by the West MacDonnell National Park. Cutting through the tough quartzite forming a picturesque natural alleyway formed the Standley Chasm. Thousands of years of surging floodwaters are responsible for this beautiful site, which is at its most impressive in the middle of a sunny day. As the light shifts across the cleft, visitors are treated to a magnificent display of colours and forms. The reliable trickle of water has ensured the survival of species from a time when Central Australia was a lusher place.

Rainbow Valley, part of the James Range is located 75 kilometers south of Alice Springs, central Australia. The reserve is an important site to the southern Arrernte people. The large rock formation known as Ewerre is a registered sacred site, and is rich in Aboriginal history especially around the hills and ridges where petroglyphs, (rock carvings) paintings, grinding stones and stone chip tools have been discovered. It is renowned for its sandstone bluffs and cliffs with bands of different coloured rock. It is at its most spectacular in the early morning light or late afternoon sun when it changes from ochre red to orange and purple.
