Things to do

Things to Do in Alice Springs

  • Go searching for the lost crocodiles of central Australia. At the Museum of Central Australia, you'll find the remains of a 12 metre eight tonne giant from the prehistoric age.
  • Visit the Alice Springs Desert Park. It's home to unique flora and fauna that call the arid landscape home. If you can, come back in the evening for a night tour for a chance to spot the park's more elusive creatures.
  • Sign up for a hot air balloon ride. There's no better way to appreciate the vastness of the desert than to see it from above. The tours start just before dawn, giving you the opportunity to witness the sunrise over the red and orange plains.
  • See the ancient rock art at Emily Gap. It's one of Alice Springs best-preserved examples and depicts the story of how caterpillars created the MacDonnell Ranges.
  • Hike the Larapinta Trail. If you're an avid nature lover, no trip to Alice Springs would be complete without walking at least part of this 12-day trek.
