Rainbow Valley is located 100 or so Km south of Alice Springs
This is one of two landscape photographs of Rainbow I have listed on this site both are a bit different and yet give you that warm feeling. The only thing you will miss is the mouse plague of 2010 and the warm rays of the sun. ( The mouse plague at that time was not that bad, though I had actually heard bad stories from other travellers of what it was like only 3 weeks earlier)
Only 100 km or so south of Alice Springs is the Rainbow Valley. Sunset is the best time of the day to visit this locality as the finial rays of light from the sun bringing out the best of the colours in this rocky escarpment. Though saying that in the first part of the morning you could see local Kites and Falcons flying above, they were probably looking down trying to catch one of the many mice that were around at the time I took this landscape photo. I had been warned by people several weeks earlier that the mice plague was so bad that if you put your greasy fry pan on the ground it would quickly fill with hungry little mice. Luckily for me by the time I had arrived the nights were getting colder and the local food supplies were running out for my little friends.
