Things to do in Alice Springs
Take a few hours to explore the Olive Pink Botanic Garden where you’ll see an abundance of nature & wildlife, and learn about the heritage and history of the area. We also recommend heading to the Araluen Cultural precinct where there’s galleries, cultural displays and museums full of beautiful Aboriginal art and heritage. Also, a fun fact about Alice Springs is that it has more art galleries than any other town in all of Australia! If you’re an animal person you’ll love Alice Springs because it’s an amazing opportunity to get acquainted with the wildlife of the outback! Head to Alice Springs Desert Park to “see the desert come alive” and witness Australia’s wildlife in their natural habitat. From birds, bats and lizards to kangaroos and emus, get ready to meet some of the native locals.
Uluru is renowned the world over as being the spiritual centre of Australia. This landmark carries huge cultural significance for the indigenous people of our country and is considered sacred by the Yankunytjatjara and Pitjantjatjara people. Uluru is located 450km from Alice Springs and is well worth the drive. Visiting the ‘red centre’ will not only leave you marvelling at its beauty and vastness but it will also give you the chance to immerse yourself in the history of our country and gain invaluable insight into the spirituality and traditions of the indigenous communities in Central Australia.
National Parks and Hiking Trails
No road trip starting in Alice Springs is complete without spending a few days in Kings Canyon and if you’re renting a 4WD, we definitely recommend a visit to the Simpson Desert. Kings Canyon is located in the George Gill Range and you have the option of exploring this stunning outback national park on foot, by canoe, in a 4x4 or in a helicopter. The Simpson Desert is over 176 square kilometres of vast sand dunes, rolling hills, red hues and horizons that go on forever. Spend your days here hiking, sightseeing and immersing yourself in the outback. Also, make sure you don’t leave the Simpson Desert without visiting Rainbow Valley, a sandstone bluff that seemingly changes colour spending on the weather and the time of day.
Where to Stay in Alice Springs
If you haven’t driven a campervan, motorhome or 4WD camper before, or if you just want the chance to get acquainted with your new home on wheels, we recommend staying at Alice Springs Tourist Park for the first night of your road trip.
