Anzac Hill is one of the best lookouts in Alice Springs. Located at the north end of town, the site offers fantastic views of the entire Alice Springs township, including Heavitree Gap and out to the MacDonnell Ranges. Atop the hill sits a memorial monument commemorating the servicemen and women who lost their lives for Australia in World War I.
The Anzac Hill Monument has graced the top of Anzac Hill for decades, since it was unveiled during Anzac Day events on April 25, 1934. The monument is the site of the dawn service and ex-servicemen march held every Anzac Day.
The views of Anzac Hill are best experienced at sunrise or sunset.
Anzac Hill is easily accessible via car, set just off the Stuart Highway north of the main township. Access is via Schwarz Crescent and Anzac Hill Road, and there is ample parking for cars at the top. It is a short walk from the parking lot to the monument. For visitors without a car, the hill is a 20-minute walk from the town center. There’s little protection from the sun on the hill's summit, so bring plenty of water and ensure you have sun protection.
