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. Straddling the usually dry Todd River, the hallmarks of Alice Springs are its lush pastures and compact, low-rise buildings. The atmosphere in the city tends to be easygoing and laid-back, not least because of the searing heat that transcends on the area throughout the year. Use our Australia trip itinerary planner to arrange your visit to Alice Springs and any other destinations in Australia that take your fancy.
