Alice Springs

Situated right in the heart of Australia, Alice Springs serves as an urban oasis deep within the country’s parched, desert-like Red Center.
On the 3rd (Fri), spend a fun day on foot with Walking tours. There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at The Kangaroo Sanctuary, get great views at Anzac Hill, get outside with Simpsons Gap, and take an in-depth tour of National Pioneer Women's Hall of Fame & Old Alice Springs Gaol.

To see maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Alice Springs trip itinerary planning tool .

Manchester, UK to Alice Springs is an approximately 30-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. You'll lose 9 hours traveling from Manchester to Alice Springs due to the time zone difference. Expect much hotter weather when traveling from Manchester in April: highs in Alice Springs hover around 34°C, while lows dip to 15°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Tue) early enough to travel to Darwin.

The smallest of Australia’s state capitals, Darwin has nevertheless become an attractive and important urban center, being simultaneously one of the country’s most modernized cities and a gateway to both the Top End region and South East Asia.
Step out of Darwin with an excursion to Litchfield National Park in Batchelor--about 1h 20 min away. Spend the 11th (Sat) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 13th (Mon) at Darwin Waterfront. There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Museum & Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, get engrossed in the history at RFDS Darwin Tourist Facility, brush up on your military savvy at Darwin Aviation Museum, and see the world from above with a helicopter tour.
