Stunning landscapes, remote communities, and a unique pioneering history create a diverse and exhilarating destination to explore. A thriving, spirited outback centre, Alice Springs is as famous for the personality of its locals and contemporary and traditional art as the natural wonders, including the stunning Larapinta Trail and the MacDonnell Ranges, which surround it.
From camels to quirky, arts to beanies and all things in between. Alice Springs puts on a serious show. Line up your trip with the next big event.
Many visitors comment on how the West & East "Macs" (MacDonnell Ranges) are more spectacular than Uluru. It’s the unexpected jagged mountain ridges coupled with the easily accessible swimming gorges (no crocs here) that are all within 1.5 hours range of Alice Springs providing multiple stops along the way. Do them as a day trip from Alice or stay at the various lodges or campgrounds along the way.
You can't come all this way and not take home original aboriginal art. There are many galleries both in the town and beyond. Learning about the stories connected to the art is as valuable as the art itself.
