Alice Springs -The City

                  

Located in the centre of Australia, Alice Springs enjoys an almost legendary status. A frontier town surrounded by vast deserts, “Alice” is a complex mix of Aboriginal and European colonial history. The stepping-off point for outback adventures, this cosmopolitan town has become a destination in its own right, with a bustling arts scene, rich cultural life and plenty to do.

 

The town straddles the usually dry Todd River on the northern side of the MacDonnell Ranges. The surrounding region is known as Central Australia, or the Red Centre, an arid environment consisting of several different deserts. In Alice Springs temperatures can vary dramatically, with an average maximum temperature in summer of 35.6 °C and an average minimum temperature in winter of 5.1 °C (41.2 °F).Whilst event time will have an ideal temperature average of 29 degrees .



Alice Springs is in the heart of Australia, just 200km from the geographical centre, nestled between the East and West MacDonnell Ranges. Known around the world as Australia's most famous Outback town

Alice Springs is celebrated for the natural beauty of its surrounding desert and the extraordinary people that have shaped its history.
