DO The Ghan

The Ghan, one of the world's great train journeys, is by far the most romantic way to travel to the Northern Territory. The Ghan's scheduled services run twice a week in both directions from June until September and once a week at all other times.

DO Rainbow Valley 

Located only 97 kms south of Alice, explore the wonders of this ancient landscape. Accessible only by four wheel drive, either sit back and relax on a guided tour or take the reins and create your own adventure. Whichever path you choose, make sure you take in the sandstone bluff and cliffs at either dawn or dusk when the rainbow-like rock bands are at their best!

Get amongst and explore West MacDonnell National Park that stretches 161kms west of Alice. Home to iconic waterholes (Big Ellery Creek Hole and Ormiston Gorge to name a few), the Ochre Pits, Gosse Bluff, Hermannsburg, and Finke River – the West Mac’s are a must on your Alice Itinerary.
