Alice Springs

Pretty much smack bang in the centre of Australia, between the cities of Darwin and Adelaide on the Stuart Highway, sits Alice Springs. Tucked in between the East and West MacDonnell Ranges, at first glance Alice Springs is not much to look at. But delve deeper into this unique Outback town and you will discover the rich Aboriginal culture, dramatic desert landscapes and quirky characters that make Alice Springs an essential stop on any trip to Australia.

Travellers looking for the “real Aussie Outback”, won’t be disappointed by Alice Springs. Jam-packed with striking landscapes, wildlife a plenty, and incredible Indigenous culture, our Alice Springs Tours offer visitors the chance to discover the heart of Australia’s Red Centre. While best known as a gateway to exploring the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, Alice Springs also has a lot to uncover and appreciate closer to home. Browse the town’s galleries to admire and purchase authentic Indigenous artwork, head out trekking through the West MacDonnell Ranges or take a dip in one of the refreshing waterholes outside of town.
