Welcome to Alice!

Situated in the arid centre of the continent, Alice Springs has long been an icon of modern Australian history, shaped in the hearts of explorers, pioneers, pastoralists and miners.

For thousands of centuries prior, the region was the lifeblood of the Aboriginal Arrernte people, the land providing water, food and shelter, and is a special place where many traditional songlines meet.

Alice Springs today carries the spiritual heart of the Australian nation.

Our iconic outback town, rich in history, culture and diversity, has much to entice the adventurous visitor. Alice Springs offers most of the facilities you will find in any urban area of Australia, including opportunities for shopping, sight-seeing, cultural immersion and entertainment.

Alice Springs Town Council’s community calendar provides a current and extensive selection of events in and around town.
