About 130km North of Alice Springs we came across the magical little town of Aileron. Two dramatic and awe-inspiring 17m statues make the town strikingly unmissable; one is an Aboriginal man standing on the hill looking over the village and the other is a beautiful Aboriginal woman and child traditionally seen hunting a goanna.
Both statues are representatives of the proud Antmajere tribe culture, which is still strong today. You have the opportunity to take the “Big Man Walk” to the top of the hill to see the male statue up close; he proudly stands next to the name of the town written similarly to the ‘Hollywood’ sign! The female statue is right next to the road and open freely to the public, she is stunning!
