A Town Called Alice

Alice Springs, another one of those iconic places in the world that you just need to visit once in a lifetime. The red centre as it is termed is a vast area of red sand the size of Europe. You can fly into Alice Springs, the Ghan railway stops here on its way to and from Darwin, Greyhound coaches come here but to really experience just how remote this place is you really need to drive yourself here. Whichever way you come its a heck of a long way. Alice Springs started in the 1800's and played a pivotal role in opening up inland Australia.

This is really the beginning of the main part of this years Oz Adventure. Leading from here to the world heritage listed Uluru (Ayers Rock) right in the heart of the Katatjuta National Park and a suprisingly long way from Alice Springs. We were surprised at how clean, modern and green Alice Springs is. The McDonald Ranges run both east and west of Alice Springs and look quite fantastic with the red sand and different shades of greens in the mountains. We spent one day on a drive to the east and the next day to the west stopping at Ellery Creek Big Hole, a superb spot for a cooling swim.
