Begin your outback adventure in Alice Springs. Explore historic sites, see the work of local artists in Aboriginal art galleries, join a cultural event or activity, or try one of the many adventure activities on offer in the desert landscape.

Australia's most famous outback town, 'Alice' is an intriguing place that hosts a jam-packed calendar of festivals, celebrations and quirky events. 

Framed by the MacDonnell Range and the desert landscape, Alice has all the conveniences of a modern township imbued with a rich living Aboriginal tradition and European explorer history.

Desert landscapes

Spend a day or a week exploring the sites of Alice. See the animals that live in Central Australia's habitats at wildlife parks, wander around Australia's only arid zone botanic garden or watch kangaroos bounding across spinifex plains from a hot air balloon at dawn.

Ride a bike to Simpsons Gap, survey the MacDonnell Range from the cockpit of a helicopter, or explore a working cattle station as part of a quad bike safari.

Local histories

Alice Springs is unofficially known as the capital of Aboriginal art and culture. Be sure to visit the galleries on Todd Mall to get to know the art and stories of the local Aboriginal Arrernte people who have lived here for 20,000 years. Board the Alice Wanderer bus for a hop on hop off tour that includes stories of the early Afghan cameleers, flying doctors and Alice Springs School of the Air.

The West Macs

For desert scenery drive into the West MacDonnell Ranges. Make the time to walk a section of the Larapinta Trail to see the gorges, cliffs and chasms, waterholes and mountains of this extraordinary range. Voted one of the planet's top 20 treks, the 223km trail extends along the West Macs from Alice Springs to Mount Sonder.

Choose from five-star luxury, boutique accommodation, self-contained apartments to holiday parks and backpackers - there is something to suit all budgets and tastes.
