Alice Springs

There are few places in Australia that capture the imagination quite as much as Alice Springs. Affectionately known as just 'Alice' to locals, Alice Springs is perhaps best known as the capital of the outback - a town that is quite literally at the heart of Australia.

Discover Alice Springs

Nestled between the East and West MacDonnell Ranges on the southern edge of the Northern Territory, Alice Springs is known for its beautiful desert landscapes, ancient Aboriginal culture and colourful local characters.

The closest main city to Uluru, Alice Springs is seen by some as little more than a transition point to get to the rock, however it's worth spending some time in Alice Springs to see what this magical outback city can offer.

What are the must-see attractions in Alice Springs?

From hot air ballooning to take in a desert sunrise to sunset camel rides, bushwalks, camping, art talks and 4WD treks through the nearby ranges, there's plenty to see and do in Alice Springs.

Fancy some fine art? There's a large number of excellent art galleries showcasing the work of internationally recognised local Aboriginal artists from the surrounding communities, as well as a wealth of attractions at the Araluen Cultural Precinct.

Climb up Anzac Hill (known also by its Indiginous name Untyeyetwelye) for views across the city, learn about the unique local fauna and flora at the Alice Springs Desert Park, cuddle up to a baby kangaroo at the Kangaroo Sanctuary, or visit the Flying Doctor Service and learn about this unique Australian medical institution through the magic of holograms.

For the seriously adventurous, why not head out to the Larapinta Trail - voted by National Geographic as one of the planet's top 20 treks? Following a 231 km path across the top of the West MacDonnell Ranges from Alice Springs Telegraph Station to Mount Sonder, this is a trek unlike any other with spectacular stargazing and ancient gorges aplenty.

Bear in mind that the Larapinta Trail should only be attempted by experienced walkers if travelling outside of an organised tour, with walking not recommended in Summer due to the extreme daytime temperatures.

For those seeking a truly unique insight into the colourful character of Alice Springs, be sure to be in town in late August for the Rotary Henley on Todd Regatta - the only dry river boat race in the world.
