    The ANZAC Hill is the place in Alice Springs, where the wars will be remembered, that the Australians have taken part. The monument itself is an unspectacular Obelisk. From up here you can see on the "Center" of Alice Springs. But the Outlook is ehr unspectacular.

    Short walk to do. You can see a beautiful bed of Sun. There is a military memorial. Anyway, to do it right if you go there.

  • Best place to go for those who want to view the town from a high point. Stunning views and close proximity to center of town. It also has a nice path to walk up on the town side
  • Great views of the town and surrounding areas! Come during sunrise or sunset for an ultimate experience!
  • Alice Springs (originally named Stuart) is a remote town in Australia’s Northern Territory, halfway between Darwin and Adelaide, both 1,500km away. It is virtually at the geographical centre of Australia. Its 1871 origin as part of the Overland Telegraph Line (linking Darwin and Adelaide) is preserved in the vintage buildings and equipment at the Alice Springs Telegraph Station Historical Reserve. (the original Alice Springs) Until the early 1930s, Alice Springs was the name given to the waterhole that was discovered and named by Government Surveyor WW Mills in March 1871, while exploring the MacDonnell Ranges during the construction of the Overland Telegraph Line. Alice Springs is named after Alice Todd, wife of the Superintendent of Telegraphs, Sir Charles Todd. Although the waterhole was originally thought to be a spring, the river Todd, which runs past the telegraph station, generally only flows for about 3 weeks every year and then dries up. After the flow, because of the geology in the immediate area, the watering hole forms here on the otherwise dry river bed.
  • What a beautiful spot to get the best views of Alice Springs. Go in the early morning or at sunset, even consider having a picnic there. See the Gap and the Ranges and tge whole pretty town all from here.
  • With a panoramic view of the city of Alice Springs in the background, I experienced an absolutely breathtaking sunset here. The anzac hill war memorial, which is situated on top of the hill, makes this a place of historic significance.
