Destinationsin Alice Springs & Surrounds

There’s no place like Alice. Discover the cultural riches of Australia’s most famous Outback town and its striking natural attractions.

Alice Springs is a welcoming outback town and popular centre for adventure activities. While you’re here, explore Alice’s rich and diverse art scene and intriguing outback history. Once you’ve set up a base in Alice, discover what lies beyond as you head out into a diverse and fascinating region.

Hike, climb and cycle you way through the chasms, craters and sacred Aboriginal sites of the MacDonnell Ranges, or four-wheel drive the expansive Simpson Desert in the southeast. Travel west to the Finke Gorge National Park for the desert oases of Palm Valley and Finke River, or head north to Halls Creek and Gemtree. Rainbow Valley, to the south, reveals a shifting palette of sandstone colours throughout the day – a photographer’s dream.
