All about Alice Springs

Alice Springs is one of the most populated towns in the middle of a desert, even though it is small and more village-like than a typical town there are many many miles between this town and the next. Alice Springs is also the gateway to Australia’s greatest wonder Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock which can be reached on a short flight or in about 4-5 hours by road.

Ayers Rock is a sacred monument to the Aborigines and there is a large proportion of the Aboriginal community living in Alice Springs as well as in the Outback – living off the land. Alice Springs and the surrounding desert also played a big part in Australia’s colourful history, most prominently during World War 2 when it was a staging base for the armed forces.

Alice Springs’ unique desert lifestyle brings an element of fun to this little town with events such as the Alice Desert Festival Camel Cup, the Henley-on-Todd Regatta, Beanie Festival and the Finke Desert Race.
