At the very heart of Australia lies the historic town of Alice Springs - the pioneering gateway to a mysterious land of natural monuments, colorful outback culture and ancient Dreamtime lore. On this half-day afternoon tour you will visit the School of the Air, the Australia's Royal Flying Doctor Service as well as take in spectacular views of the West MacDonnell ranges from Anzac Hill.


Alice Springs is the country's best known 'Outback' town. Originally settled as a post along the Overland Telegraph route, Alice Springs today is a lively town full of things to see and places to go. On your informative town tour, you'll find the locals to be relaxed and friendly, and always keen for a chat.

Start your tour with a visit to the historic Telegraph Station that was first in service in the 1800s to connect Australian towns and cities to each other and bridge the communication gap with other countries.

Visit the base of the Royal Flying Doctor Service and see how medical aid reaches those in remote outback communities. You will also see the School of the Air, and organization that provides education to children over the radio. You may even have the opportunity to listen and observe a class in progress!

Then, make a stop at the Alice Springs Reptile Park and see a collection of snakes and lizards that call the outback home. You will see the Thorny Devil and the larger Perentie Lizard. Get up close to the snakes and lizards and touch them if you dare!

End the day with panoramic views of the town and the rugged West MacDonnell Ranges from Anzac Hill.

Desert Park Option
Should you choose to include the Alice Spring Desert Park Option, you will have the morning free to visit the park at your leisure. Rise early for your transfer to the world class Alice Springs Desert Park where you will witness free-flying birds at the Nature Theatre presentation and see rare and endangered animals such as the Bilby. Time at the Alice Springs Desert Park is unguided; you will explore the park in your own time at leisure. The return transfer to your hotel will leave the Desert Park at 12noon. You should then have time to for lunch at your own expense, before you are picked up from your hotel for the ‘A Town like Alice’ Tour.
