Alice Springs ATTRACTIONS See all

Alice Springs Desert Park

The Alice Springs Desert Park offers the opportunity to experience the main desert environments in Australia. Wander through sand, woodland and river deserts and learn about their different plant and animal inhabitants. You will also learn about the traditional owners of the land, the Arrernte.

Animals rarely seen in the wild are on display in the nocturnal house which mimics the night desert offering a peek at rare and endangered animals that only come out in the dark like bilbies and carnivorous ghost bats.

The aquarium offers you a look at the animals you might find in a waterhole including fish, yabbies, burrowing frogs and turtles.

Practical Info

Guided audio tours are available. You can take the short route through the park or explore further afield to find kangaroos and birdlife.

The park is 10 minutes by car from the center of Alice Springs. Alternatively, the Larapinta bike track will take you to the entrance.
