Alice Springs

Located just 200 kilometres from the geographical centre of Australia is the outback town of Alice Springs, affectionately known as ‘Alice’.

There’s plenty to see and do in and around this isolated town; visit the home of unique outback community services the Royal Flying Doctor Service and School of the Air, wander through the town centre where you’ll find local Aboriginal art on display and meet friendly locals who’ll share their amazing stories about life in the outback.

The historic Telegraph Station is a must-see on a visit to Alice Springs. Built in 1872 as part of the Overland Telegraph line linking Adelaide to Darwin and Australia to the world, it’s a window into Australia’s pioneering past.

Alice Springs is bordered by the rugged MacDonnell Ranges and has a range of incredible Red Centre experiences right on its doorstep. Follow the Red Centre Way from Alice Springs to the remote Aboriginal community of Hermannsburg and you’ll witness the landscapes that inspired renowned Australian artist Albert Namatjira, who was born in this former German missionary town.

Travel further west through the breathtaking desert terrain of the West MacDonnell Ranges and you’ll discover unique natural wonders like Standley Chasm and Palm Valley, an oasis of palm trees in the rugged surroundings of Finke Gorge National Park.

Alice is also a gateway to some of Australia’s most iconic destinations including Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) and Kings Canyon and is part of the famous rail journey on The Ghan from Adelaide to Darwin.
