Alice Springs

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.
Alice Springs is known for wildlife, museums, and historic sites. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: identify plant and animal life at The Kangaroo Sanctuary, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Gillen, get a dose of the wild on Wayoutback Australian Safaris, and shake up your sightseeing with The Rock Tour - Day Tours.

For maps, where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Alice Springs itinerary planner.

Sydney to Alice Springs is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. The time zone changes from Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) to Australian Central Standard Time (ACST), which is usually a -0.5 hour difference. When traveling from Sydney in October, plan for somewhat warmer days and about the same nights in Alice Springs: temperatures range from 38°C by day to 16°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Fri) early enough to travel to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.

Geologic Formations · Specialty Museums · Wildlife Areas
A largely unpopulated, parched land of deep red desert, spectacular rock formations, and small, isolated settlements, Northern Territory has perhaps the most distinctively Australian aesthetic of all the country’s states. The region’s towns and cities are clustered around the Stuart Highway--the iconic road that serves as Northern Territory’s main artery--rather than the coastline, as is normally the case in Australia.
