Operated by the Araluen Cultural Precinct in partnership with Heritage Alice Springs, The Residency holds significance for the people of Alice Springs as a tangible symbol of their brief legislative independence from the rest of the Northern Territory, housing the appointed Government Resident of Central Australia between 1927 and 1931.
When it operated as a residence, the building also provided a hub of social and cultural activities.
Now an historical house, The Residency features historical information and photographs about the Northern Territory and Central Australia, while also featuring regular art exhibitions and events.
The Residency is open from 10 am – 3pm on weekday.
