Why this Hike

This amazing natural wonder in the remote Northern Territory takes you through tall sandstone spires that resemble an abandoned city. With a range of native habitats also present in the reserve this walk around this loop is something quite special and different from other hikes like it in the local area.

Track Notes & Overview

Starting at the Southern Lost City Campground this hike follows a loop track around this natural attraction in an anticlockwise direction. When joining the track turn right and walk around the loop which should be around 2.5 kilometres long and require a little bit of a climb before returning back to the campground to head home.
