In the heart of Australia’s ‘red centre’, Alice Springs offers guests a unique ‘outback’ experience. Here you can find plenty of indigenous art, an array of heritage and historic sites, and festivals all year round.
Wander Todd Mall’s many galleries, shops and cafés, or explore the wonders on display at the Araluen Arts Centre. For an aerial perspective on this unique town, head to the summit of Anzac Hill for superb views; you’ll also find a memorial dedicated to those who died in service of their country.
A major attraction is the Alice Springs Desert Park, where visitors can glimpse many of Australia’s most remarkable and unique wildlife – from the spangled grunter to wedge-tailed eagles.
There’s plenty of history to be explored here too; visit the Royal Flying Doctor Service Museum or the old telegraph station. To explore the Northern Territory’s rugged landscapes, visit Simpson’s Gap in the West MacDonnell National Park.
