Sport & Recreation

Sport­ing and recre­ation­al groups ben­e­fit our local com­mu­ni­ty by cre­at­ing fun, var­ied oppor­tu­ni­ties to reg­u­lar­ly engage peo­ple, from all walks of life, in social activ­i­ty – and Alice Springs is a tru­ly sports-lov­ing town!

From extreme moun­tain-bik­ing and trail-run­ning, to book clubs and lawn bowls, Alice has much to offer those seek­ing to con­tribute to the com­mu­ni­ty, improve their health and fit­ness, or expand their social network.
