This is an excellent tour introducing visitors to the School of the Air, the original Bush Telegraph Station and the Flying Doctor Service. Although Alice Springs is a long way from Melbourne or Sydney, this trip made it worth making the journey.
Very nice, do it!
Good opportunity to see the main attractions in Alice Springs in a short time. It was great to see the Old Telegraph station, Reptile park, the Royal Flying Doctor Service and the amazing work that they do Anzac Hill and the School of the Air which allows you to see the teacher giving the lessons via an incredible network of computers, reaching some children 1000's kilometres away.
Fantastic and very informative. Rex at the reptile park was amazingly knowledgeable
A very informative tour given at each place we visited, Tour guide was a local lad who also gave us good history and knowledge of the area.
Fantastic tour! We added Alice Springs to our trip as a little extra and were not disappointed. The School of the Air was a true pioneer in long distance education and it was great to watch teachers delivering their lessons to their students. The Reptile House was remarkable as the owner took us through each critter and even explained how to survive a deadly bite. Learning about the long distance medical services was also extremely interesting and gave you a good sense of the struggles living remotely can bring. Easy hotel pickup and we were offered delivery back or optionally downtown drop off with dinner suggestions.
If you are in Alice Springs for a short period of time, this is a great way to see and learn a lot quickly. The small group makes it personal which is really nice, and the stops are all really interesting. The Reptile Center was especially fun! Definitely recommend!
Really good tour to see Alice Springs if you dont have a lot of time for the town, but still a very relaxed tour that brings you to all the important places. Very interesting to watch a live school lesson at the school of the air as well as seeing the base of the Flying Doctors . The guides at the Reptile Park were very enthusiatic and gave excellent information about the animals. Finally from Anzac Hill you get a fantastic view of the whole town and the ranges, which were especially beautiful and green after a wet winter 2016.
Great way to see Alice if you have restricted time and no car.
