Alice Springs

4.1

The Heart of Central Australia

Situated right in the heart of Australia, Alice Springs serves as an urban oasis deep within the country’s parched, desert-like Red Center. Straddling the usually dry Todd River, the hallmarks of Alice Springs are its lush pastures and compact, low-rise buildings. The atmosphere in the city tends to be easygoing and laid-back, not least because of the searing heat that transcends on the area throughout the year. Alice Springs is in Red Centre.

Message from Tourism Australia
Surrounded by red dirt and hauntingly beautiful mountain ranges you'll find Alice Springs, a city of arts and events. Alice Springs – known to locals as simply "Alice" – is the beating heart of Australia's Red Centre. It's a great base for exploring the natural wonders of the Northern Territory's outback, including Uluru, Kata Tjuta, Kings Canyon, the West MacDonnell Ranges and their iconic Larapinta Trail, the red sands of the Simpson Desert and the haunting sight of the Devils Marbles. It's also a fascinating spot to explore Australia's Aboriginal culture.
