Time to be a Territorian - in Alice Springs

 

Alice Springs region 1200x6286

Alice Springs - the iconic town in the middle of Australia. Whether your from here or from the surrounding areas, Alice Springs has no shortage of great experiences waiting for you to explore.

Spend your weekends exploring those sites in Alice Springs you've never had a chance to visit. Check out the galleries on Todd Mall, to get to know the art and stories of the local Aboriginal Arrernte people.

There are a range of tours available right here in Alice where you can uncover the cultural significance of this town,  or even learn of the history of legendary explorers, prospectors, cattlemen and pioneering women.

See the animals that live in Central Australia's habitats at wildlife parks or from the basket of a hot air balloon as they roam across the spinifex plains. Wander around Australia's only arid zone botanic garden. Try one of the many adventure activities on offer from riding a bike to Simpsons Gap, surveying the MacDonnell Range from the cockpit of a helicopter. Need something to take up your late afternoon? Why not take a scenic Camel ride as the sunsets over the ranges. Discover the night sky with an astronomy tour, and spend your evening kicking back in one of the many accommodation providers this town has to offer.

The town has a lot to offer including a wide range of accommodation, excellent dining options and travel connections - there is something to suit all budgets and tastes.
