ALICE SPRINGS, NORTHERN TERRITORY
Surrounded by a red sand desert which stretches for hundreds of kilometres in all directions, Alice Springs is one of Australia’s most famous outback towns. It is the gateway to the iconic natural features of Uluṟu (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuṯa National Park. Here, stories of Australia’s history and heritage are told through a colourful cast of characters and events that include camel races, gold-diggers and outback pioneers. Alice Springs lies in the physical and spiritual heart of Australia’s Red Centre. It is surrounded on all sides by the jagged MacDonnell Ranges, which according to the traditional owners, the Arrernte people, was formed during the Dreamtime by giant caterpillars.
Today, the town’s upmarket hotels, restaurants, and 20,000 inhabitants, continue to uphold its vibrant history. It’s also an excellent place to pick up an authentic piece of unique Aboriginal art. Spend a day or a week exploring the sites of Alice. See the animals that live in Central Australia’s habitats at wildlife parks, wander around Australia’s only arid zone botanic garden or watch kangaroos bounding across spinifex plains from a hot air balloon at dawn. Enjoy the outback and stay in an ‘Ensuite Cabin’ (sleeps 6) at BIG4 Macdonnell Range Holiday Park.
