Begin your outback adventure in Alice Springs. Explore historic sites, see the work of local artists in Aboriginal art galleries, join a cultural event or activity, or try one of the many adventure activities on offer in the desert landscape.
Alice Springs epitomises the Australian outback character, with some unexpected surprises. It’s your basecamp for adventure, with waterholes, biking and hiking trails, historic and wildlife centres and four-wheel driving all within easy access.
Visit one of Alice Springs’ many Aboriginal art galleries, where you might meet the artists and purchase their work or drop in to the Royal Flying Doctor Service, which services an area of more than 7 million square kilometres. Learn about Alice Springs’ plants, animals and landscapes at the Alice Springs Desert Park and make sure you go along to one of Alice’s famous and unique festivals and events, like the Camel Cup, the Finke Desert Race or the hilarious Henley-on-Todd Regatta.
