  • A really nice spot in town to watch the sun go down or to watch fireworks! My partner and I often drive up with dinner and watch the lights of the town. Steep drive/walk up but worth the trek.  more »
  • As well as being an important memorial and very well done you get brilliant views of the surrounding desert and mountain ranges. You get a feel that you are really in the red centre. Even if just pass...  more »
  • Good bit of history mixed with some great views of Alice. Unfortunately we got there just after the sunset.  more »

  • A great tribute to the soldiers of all the wars in which Australia fought. Respect. Also a place for an early morning walk - the scenery is great when you reach the top.
  • Anzac Hill is a great place to view over Alice Springs Township, also War Memorial, which is visited by many tourists
  • Perfect place for sunset . Not too much walking as well.
  • Good view looking over Town centre. Must see
  • When you are alone at the top of a hill located in a small town which is at the center of a continent, you will feel that you conquer the world. I feel the same way.
