More Information about Alice Springs
Alice Springs is a modern low rise metropolis that has evolved over the years from its original beginnings 135 years ago where only a solitary telegraph station stood and is surrounded by seemingly endless red dirt and rugged ranges on all sides. This is a very isolated place that is home to the Royal Flying Doctor Service Base and the School of the Air which serve as a reminder of just how remote it really is but due to its popularity tourists can, at times, outnumber the locals six to one. Accommodation is easy to find and with tourists visiting on a regular basis and numbering in the many thousands throughout the year there is a wide variety of cuisine to suit all pallets. There are a wide variety of locally run shops both for gifts and general produce which are decorated in a typically outback style with corrugated iron and other touches to add to the illusion, however a large number of the residents work for the CIA in the nearby highly secretive US satellite-tracking installation that has been listening to the world for the since 1966.
Popular tourist attractions include Kings Canyon (an extraordinary place of ancient beauty and intrigue), Ayres Rock – “Uluru” (one of Australia’s most famous landmarks and the country’s most visited site) and Camping Safaris (on which you can explore ancient caves with paintings and discover the indigenous culture through guided walks, experience the red heart of Australia, celebrate the sun setting over Uluru with a sparkling wine toast, see the domes of Kata Tjuta change colour at sunrise and amongst many other things enjoy a traditional Aussie barbecue dinner).
