Land Resources part West McDonnell Nat Park

Simpson's Gap National Park was mapped into land units at a scale of 1:25,000 in 1982. A general physical description of the land is included, together with detailed accounts of the vegetation communities and soils. Recommendations on future planning and management are outlined. The survey area lies in the MacDonnell Ranges of Central Australia, with the eastern boundary only 8km from Alice Springs and covers an area of approximately 311km2. The park has now been incorporated into the West MacDonnell National Park. Core attributes describing the land units, as defined by this department, were added to the spatial dataset in November 2014
