Dramatically located in the heart of Australia's red center, Alice Springs offers fascinating historic attractions and is the perfect launching pad to experience the surrounding natural beauty. When in town be sure to admire The Residency, an official government building founded in 1927 and to tour the Alice Springs Telegraph Station. Also of interest is the Aviation Museum and the Museum of Central Austalia. For a view of the town, walk up Anzac Hill.
Adventurous travelers will appreciate exploring the nearby West MacDonnell Ranges. On the other hand, enjoy a magnificent ballooning trip as the sunrises or take a camel ride. The Reptile Center displays the local wildlife and the Olive Pink Botanical Garden is worth investigating especially after rain.
