Situated right in the heart of Australia, Alice Springs serves as an urban oasis deep within the country’s parched, desert-like Red Center.
Step out of the city life by going to Alice Springs Desert Park and Alice Springs Reptile Centre. Appreciate the collections at Road Transport Hall of Fame and National Pioneer Women's Hall of Fame & Old Alice Springs Gaol. Step out of Alice Springs with an excursion to Hermannsburg Historic Precinct in Hermannsburg--about 2 hours away. Spend the 19th (Sun) exploring nature at Finke Gorge National Park. Spend the 23rd (Thu) exploring nature at Owen Springs Reserve. And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Alice Springs Telegraph Station Historical Reserve, identify plant and animal life at Ewaninga Rock Carvings Conservation Reserve, take some stellar pictures from Anzac Hill, and admire the natural beauty at Olive Pink Botanic Garden.
