Things to see and do in Alice Springs

Planning to jetset to Alice Springs for a vacay? You won't be disappointed, as the third largest town in the Northern Territory has a lot to offer.

Apart from the beauty of the nearby MacDonnell Ranges that stretch east, the city itself has a strong link to Aboriginal culture, as well as its pioneering history. Another major drawcard of visiting Alice Springs is the abundance of wildlife, such as the Big Red Kangaroos that call the area home, as well as wallabies, dingoes and a variety of reptiles. And get up close with the native animals by cruising to the Alice Springs Desert Park.

Of course, you can't visit the Red Centre without putting a visit to the iconic World-Heritage Uluru (otherwise known as Ayers Rock) on your travel itinerary. Located in the Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park getting to this spectacular land formation takes just over 4 hours in your Thrifty hire car, along sealed roads.

Once you have arrived at Uluru, you can learn about the rich Aboriginal culture, heritage and Dreamtime story telling with an Aboriginal guide. There's also the option to hire a helicopter or hot air balloon, for a truly once and a lifetime experience of seeing Uluru from above. Plus camel back riding - another unique activity to add to your Northern Territory bucket list.
