The growth of the current Alice Springs has occurred only in the last 30 years,
with the road south to Adelaide being only fully sealed in 1987. Today, Alice
Springs is a major tourist destination, but to really appreciate this desert community,
take the time to visit some of the outlying surrounding attractions.
For those planning a visit to Central Australia, making Alice Springs your base,
provides a great place from which to visit the wonders of the surrounding
region. For those new to the area, a visit to many of the regions attractions
from Alice Springs can entail anywhere from half a day to a couple of days,
especially if you stay overnight.
There is also the unique tourism experience of the ‘Red
Centre Way’, an iconic road trip that takes in some of the best attractions
of Central Australia.
A popular route taken by visitors to the
region is to fly in to Uluru, catch a coach tour via Kings Canyon then to Alice
Springs. Whilst in Alice, there is so much to see and do, you can spend at least a month.
