About Alice Springs

Located in the center point of the continent of Australia, Alice Springs is known as ‘Alice’ by the locals and is considered “Australia’s Belly.” The city’s economy almost entirely depends on tourism. The locals pay close attention to many sports activities like tennis, hockey, football, rugby, cricket and camel races.

The city of Alice Springs is completely under the effect of the desert climate. During summer, which falls between November and March, the weather becomes very hot. The ideal time to visit the city would be when the temperatures relatively drop in the winter which falls between the months of May and August, and even though it is winter the average temperatures during the day are 15-20°C and don’t forget that during the night the temperatures drop drastically. Because of this, if you are planning to be out late you surely must bring along clothes that will keep you warm. Wear light colored and thin clothes that will protect you from the sun during the day and wear a hat. Don’t neglect to drink a lot of water.

Because of the weather conditions, we do not recommend travelling Alice Springs on foot. Instead of this, you may rent a bicycle or attend tours of hot air balloon rides or camel rides. As an alternative, there are tours arranged on motorcycles and ATV vehicles. With many aboriginal residents in the city, there are many handmade aboriginal crafts exhibited and sold at art galleries and takes place in visitors’ ‘must see’ lists.

Alice Springs, a desert city, is surrounded by many natural parks. While some are very close to the city, some are kilometers away. Some of these places can be visited to get to take a closer look at reptile species and kangaroos at desert camps. Giving you an experience you won’t forget, keep in mind these camps last a couple days.

Promising a marvelous sunse view from all over the city, Alice Springs is the first stop one should have in order to see the real Australia and get to know Aboriginal culture.
