Once nothing more than a quiet telegraph station, Alice Springs has now developed into a bustling outback destination. Hundreds of thousands of tourists visit what used to be a remote location to take in the fascinating Macdonnell Ranges, and Aboriginal traditions – both of which are just the beginning of what makes "the Alice" one of Australia's ultimate treasures.Find Cruises Sailing to This Port
With such a vast, red desert, it may be hard to picture any animal life making a home in the Alice. But there are plenty of incredible species to be found at the Alice Springs Desert Park. Australian kestrels, bilbies, geckos, grunters and endangered species abound in the park's fascinating exhibits.
Aussie bush meats such as kangaroo and emu are on the menu in Alice Springs. Try them with herbs that include lemon myrtle and local fruits such as pepper berries, or sample a kangaroo burger.
There's no shortage of incredible Australian Aboriginal crafts to be found in the Alice. Everything from hand-woven baskets to watercolor paintings are on sale in stores that help support Aboriginal artists and their communities.
The Australian Dollar (AUD) is the official currency of Australia. Many stores and restaurants also accept major credit cards, which usually offer you a good exchange rate. When shopping, remember there is a Value-Added Tax added to most purchases.
