Alice Springs explorer 4 day itinerary

According to legend, Alice Springs is equally as far distant from any beach as it is close... We do 'beaches' in the Red Centre manner here. With a plethora of activities right on your doorstep, Alice Springs will surprise and thrill you. Consider swimming holes, spectacular rocky vistas, incredible fauna, and fantastic gastronomic hangouts. Consider visiting during one of the unique festivals, such as the Beanie Festival or the Henley on Todd Regatta — you won't be disappointed.

Day 1: Alice Springs

Hire a car when you arrive in Alice and drive directly to Simpsons Gap. As the sun begins to set, marvel at the changing colors of the rocks. The short stroll to Simpsons Gap is enjoyable. Keep a look out for the local wildlife that congregates on the ledges.

Days 2 & 3: Alice Springs and West MacDonnell Ranges

The following few days are yours to explore Alice Springs and the surrounding area. There are numerous attractions within a short driving distance. We strongly advise you to visit the West MacDonnell Ranges and all of the nearby waterholes. Glen Helen, Ormiston Gorge, and Ellery Creek Big Hole are among our favorites. Redbank Gorge, if you go a little further, will reward you with refreshing waters. There is something for everyone at Alice Springs. The Royal Flying Doctors Service, Desert Park, School of the Air, and the Araluen Cultural Precinct are all worth a visit.

Day 4: Alice Springs

A trip to Alice isn't complete without a hot air balloon ride in the early morning. The greatest way to observe Alice and its surroundings is from the tranquil floating experience of a hot air balloon, with lovely clear blue skies, red desert for days, and amazing views.
