In 1999 I went seeking a job at Stewarts Well Caravan Park, and The owner, Jim Cotterill, took me for a drive to see Rainbow Gorge after the rains.  The water in the photo is not a Dam, Lake or Pond, it is simply puddles after the rain. The reflections are marvellous.

These photos were taken in 1999 using my Pentax and I found them today and copied them with my current digital camera to share the beauty of this place. Stewart Well is 90 Kms south of Alice Springs where the Stuart Highway passes through a gap in the James Ranges.

Stuarts Well 

Although you have nearly reached Alice Springs now, it is worth to stop at the Stuarts Well Roadhouse to enjoy some real Australian Outback atmosphere.
Also known as “Jim’s place” to the locals, Jim Coterill has many stories to tell. Don’t miss Dinky, the singing dingo, although his performance might sound a bit strange for your ears. 🙂

Facilities: Wide range of budget accommodation, from cabins to bunkhouse and caravan/camping facilities.

Detours in the area: 14 km north of Stuarts Well leads a dirt road to the Rainbow Valley Conservation Reserve. The 24 km track can be managed with a conventional car in dry weather.
The main attraction are stunning red sandstone cliffs with rainbow-like bands of coloured rocks. The rocks are especially attractive in the early morning and late afternoon light. But even at noon it is worth to do the detou
