The ranges are dissected by deep longitudinal valleys formed by ancient runoff and the transverse gorges of periodic rivers. On the slopes there are sparse patches of Spinifex grass; eucalyptus, red gum, and acacias grow in the valleys. The trans-Australian Overland Telegraph Line crosses the ranges near Alice Springs.
