Coach tours, horse and camel tours, bushwalking and camping tours, ballooning tours – you name it, there are countless ways to get to know Alice Springs.
Take an Aboriginal cultural tour and explore the art, stories and history of the Arrernte people, the traditional owners of Mpwante (Alice Springs). Spend a day visiting the Two Women Dreaming Track, or camp in The Hinterland with an Aboriginal guide who'll introduce you to local communities and their culture and customs.
Get your kicks
Adventure fiends can get pointed in all the right directions by experienced guides, whether hot air ballooning or taking a helicopter joyride over the MacDonnell Ranges. Get closer to ground level quad-biking across the open desert landscape or trekking through rocky chasms and cooling off in natural waterholes.
Occupied for over 30,000 years and right in the centre of Australia, Alice is a hotspot for history and heritage. Take a tour exploring the rich heritage of The Alice: from ancient stories of the Arrernte people to one of Australia's greatest engineering feats, and the European settlement that followed.
Back to nature
Don't be fooled by the seemingly arid landscape – take a nature and wildlife tour of Alice to discover the unique desert ecology. Visit the award-winning Alice Springs Desert Park, and get up close and personal with snakes and lizards at the Territory's largest reptile display – the Alice Springs Reptile Centre.
Is the Outback the vast expanses of desert and rocky lunar landscapes, or the stories and characters in the middle-of-nowhere pubs? Is it the homesteads on vast cattle stations, or the ancient culture and stories of the indigenous people? Take a tour through Alice Springs and you'll soon discover the real Outback.
