Alice Springs Travel

The Middle of Nowhere

Well, technically Alice Springs is in the middle of Australia but to put it in perspective the nearest big cities are Darwin to the north and Adelaide to the south - both approximately 1,500 kilometres away. In between the boundless miles of red desert.

But the area around Alice Springs is anything but just boring desert. Rather is boast incredible hikes in a natural wonderland including the iconic Ayers Rock/Uluru, Kata Tjuta/the Olgas and Kings Canyon. (You will find that most areas in the region hold both a western and traditional Aboriginal name - the latter being preferred). The region around Alice Springs is rich in Arrenrte (the traditional Aboriginal people of the land) culture and history.

It is possible to fly in and out of Alice Springs for those wanting a quick visit but the ultimate outback experience involves an overland trip from Adelaide or Darwin. One of the coolest things about overnighting in the outback is the lack of city or town lights meaning incredible unobstructed star-gazing.
