Wel­come to Alice!

Sit­u­at­ed in the arid cen­tre of the con­ti­nent, Alice Springs has long been an icon of mod­ern Aus­tralian his­to­ry, shaped in the hearts of explor­ers, pio­neers, pas­toral­ists and miners.

For thou­sands of cen­turies pri­or, the region was the lifeblood of the Abo­rig­i­nal Arrernte peo­ple, the land pro­vid­ing water, food and shel­ter, and is a spe­cial place where many tra­di­tion­al song­lines meet.

Alice Springs today car­ries the spir­i­tu­al heart of the Aus­tralian nation.

Our icon­ic out­back town, rich in his­to­ry, cul­ture and diver­si­ty, has much to entice the adven­tur­ous vis­i­tor. Alice Springs offers most of the facil­i­ties you will find in any urban area of Aus­tralia, includ­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties for shop­ping, sight-see­ing, cul­tur­al immer­sion and entertainment.

Alice Springs Town Council’s com­mu­ni­ty cal­en­dar pro­vides a cur­rent and exten­sive selec­tion of events in and around town.
