Situated right in the heart of Australia, Alice Springs serves as an urban oasis deep within the country’s parched, desert-like Red Center.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Alice Springs Desert Park and Finke Gorge National Park. Attractions like Walking tours and Ormiston Gorge make great kid-friendly stops. There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Alice Springs Telegraph Station Historical Reserve, get outside with Simpsons Gap, look for all kinds of wild species at The Emily and Jessie Gaps Nature Park, and see the interesting displays at Hartley Street School Museum.

To find maps, photos, and more tourist information, read our Alice Springs route planner.

Hong Kong, China to Alice Springs is an approximately 19.5-hour flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Hong Kong to Alice Springs due to the time zone difference.
