Welcome to AusEmade Photos. In this section are snapshots from the Alice Springs Desert Park in the heart of Central Australia.

With a world renowned reputation, this popular Alice Springs attractions is nestled at the base of the spectacular MacDonnell Ranges, that provide a magnificent backdrop to this incredible park. A must see destination for those interested in the rich diversity of flora and fauna in this arid desert region, the Alice Springs Desert Park is your essential introduction to Australia's desert, showcasing the landscapes, animals and plants of central Australia's, and their traditional use and management by the Aboriginal people.

The park introduces a new dimension in environmental presentation through the integrated display of the plant, animal and human elements of Australia deserts. The introduction to the incredible subtle richness of Australian deserts encourages the further exploration of the regions spectacular network of national parks and reserves. It is indeed a a great way to introduce yourself to the area, especially those venturing out on tours through the region.

The park is divided into three typical desert habitats that include the Desert Rivers, Sand Country and Woodland. There are a number of 'Guide Presentations', aviaries (including walk-in ones), Nocturnal House, free-flying birds of prey in the Nature Theatre, Exhibition Centre and theatre presentation.

For those planning a visit, an ideal length of time to allocate is 4 hours or more. This will allow for at least one guided presentation, the Nature Theatre Birds of Prey Show, a visit to the three desert habitats, and the Nature Theatre Presentation.
