Stunning landscapes, remote communities, friendly locals and a unique pioneering history create an exhilarating destination to explore. 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.
‘The Alice’ as it is fondly known, is situated in Australia’s Northern Territory, 1,500km from the nearest major city. Exploring the Red Centre of Australia is popular amongst travellers and Alice Springs is the centre of it all. Originating in 1872 as part of the Overland Telegraph Line you can still see the vintage buildings and equipment preserved at the Alice Springs Telegraph Station Historical Reserve.
The town is surrounded in natural beauty with the stunning MacDonnell Ranges and the many natural valleys and waterholes to explore. Check the Northern Territory Tourism website to see the many options for things to see and do around Alice Springs.
