On the 2nd (Fri), examine the collection at Road Transport Hall of Fame, brush up on your military savvy at Alice Springs RSL War Museum, then contemplate the long history of Alice Springs Telegraph Station Historical Reserve, and finally identify plant and animal life at Alice Springs Desert Park. Keep things going the next day: explore the striking landscape of Corroboree Rock Conservation Area and then look for all kinds of wild species at Alice Springs Reptile Centre.
