The red landscapes of Alice Springs and Central Australia provide a stunning backdrop for an array of activities, from hot air ballooning to Aboriginal dot painting.
Alice Springs has a range of outback adventures on offer. Get up early for a sunrise hot air balloon ride over the MacDonnell Ranges, then charter a private helicopter for a spectacular journey over the region’s crystal-clear waterholes, plunging gorges and jutting mountain ranges.
Enjoy a leisurely camel ride through the Central Australian landscape and marvel at the view from atop these legendary ‘ships of the desert’. Afterwards, get up close with the desert plants and animals at Alice Springs Desert Park, or take part in a dot painting workshop with a local Aboriginal artist.
Other unmissable experiences in Alice Springs include bush food tours, four-wheel drive safaris, and starlit dinners showcasing indigenous ingredients.
