Alice Springs, Northern Territory

 

Serving as the perfect travel hub for the exploration of Australia's iconic Red Centre, the outback town of Alice Springs is a staple destination for any people planning to visit Uluru / Ayers Rock and its many surrounding natural and geological highlights. Alice is also a unique town in its own right; a no-frills town that harks back to the days of early frontier colonial Australia while seeing increased development due to its location as a travel hotspot.

Why Alice Springs?

 

State: Northern Territory

Why it's special: Stunningly rugged location; easy access to some of Australia's most iconic day trip destinations; captivating red sand and famously Australian landscapes in all directions

Best time to go: August - September

Situated in a location amongst the scenery of the ruggedly beautiful MacDonnell ranges, “The Alice” has evolved into a spot that blends the old with the modern, and offers enough to see and do within both its limits and surrounds that it's become a viable travel destination in its own right.

Still boasting a strong influence from Aboriginal art and culture, this part of the country is spiritually significant to its indigenous inhabitants and as such Aboriginal people and art are an integral part of Alice Springs.

Combine this with unique and tough desert wildlife, the vivid red-brown earth of the Outback, and plenty of historical buildings and landmarks, and Alice Springs is likely to be unlike any other Aussie town you've explored.

 

While most prospective travellers will likely simply dismiss Alice Springs as a mere springboard to further delights of the Northern Territory nearby, the town and its surrounds has enough to offer to keep those visiting occupied for several days. Given that a number of its attractions provide insight into animals, people, culture and histories that can't be found anywhere else in the country, you can just as soon find yourself hawking at a spiked Thorned Lizard as being entranced by a didgeridoo performance accompanied by a laser show or soaring over the red landscape in a hot air balloon.

There's a strong sense of local pride amongst locals here, too, who have toughed out a life amongst a harsh landscape yet have never let it cloud their friendliness and hospitality. Take time to get to know The Alice, and it will more than reward you in kind.
