Araluen Cultural Precinct, Alice Springs

(140+ reviews on the web)
Art Museum Specialty Museum
A complex that houses art and history within its environs, Araluen Cultural Precinct showcases stunning and dynamic aboriginal art. Discover the history of skies at the aviation museum or the history of the earth at the geology and fossil exhibit. Catch a performance at the center for contemporary art and delight in the many galleries around the complex. If you're a film buff, check out the program for art-house films at the 500-seat theater, where independent films and live performance both find an audience. However, one of the highlights of the complex isn't the moving pictures but the magnificent stained-glass window that greets visitors at the entrance at the arts complex. Our Alice Springs trip itinerary builder makes visiting Araluen Cultural Precinct and other Alice Springs attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Great place for art lovers and generally the only place where performances are held. Good seating and a snack bar. Great sounding theatres
  • You can buy a ticket for 15$ and have access to the art gallery, the central australia museum and the aviation museum. Interesting! Friendly staff!
  • If you're after a cultural fix this is the joint. Aboriginal art, sculpture & museums galore, throw in a cafe & a theatre and it's the happening joint for the culture junkies
  • Inspiring concert for the last night of Desert Festival combining Local + Indian + guitar quartet. Playing original pieces and combining all facets of the presenters...vocal + instruments. Encore would have been great.
  • Great place to spend time yourself or with your family. There are aviation museum, central Australian museum which is great for geologists, great art center, good cafe and a great outdoor playing grounds for kids.
