Alice Springs is one of only two major cities in Australia’s Northern Territory, so it stands to reason that much of the outback state is best visited from this central point. There’s still plenty to do in town, but it’s worth the few hours driving here and there to see trademark Australian sights like Glen Helen Gorge, Ellery Creek Big Hole and of course the magnificent Uluru.
The town is surrounded by stunning national parks and vast stretches of scorching desert, so nature is very much at work in the area. Visiting Alice Springs means immersing yourself in the Outback and appreciating the raw beauty of it. Meet local wildlife at the Olive Pink Botanic Garden, or literally dive in at Ormiston Gorge in West MacDonnell National Park.
If you’re keen to learn more about Aboriginal Australian culture, visiting the Sounds of Starlight Theatre is a must. Andrew Langford established the theatre in 1996 to introduce others to the famous Australian didgeridoo, and visitors can witness a unique performance of the instrument and learn more about indigenous culture.
Todd Mall is the busiest part of town, particularly every second Sunday when the markets are held. Take the trek up ANZAC Hill to witness all of Alice Springs laid out before you, and pause at the memorial dedicated to the men and women who served in World War One, and the plaques commemorating all who have served.
Alice Springs is an ideal base for visiting the Australian Outback so allow yourself plenty of time to visit the plethora of natural attractions in this beautiful part of the country and you will be rewarded with an experience unlike anything else the land has to offer.
