A Town like Alice

Learn how the town of Alice Springs has evolved into the central hub of the Australian outback.

Visit historical sites and some of the essential services delivered from Alice to the community of this vast region. The traditional custodians of the land are the Arrernte people, who refer to Alice as ‘Mpwante’. Visit Alice Springs Reptile Centre, home to the largest reptile display in Central Australia, where you'll have lots of fun, particularly during the show and if you’re game, try the supervised handling session.
