Alice Springs is crammed with tour operators offering exciting trips lasting from a few hours to several days and taking in all the spectacular sights and landmarks of the iconic Australian outback.

Whether you’re into natural wonders, the British colonial history of the country or the 50,000-year-old traditions, heritage, beliefs and lifestyles of the Aboriginal peoples, it’s all here in this once-in-a-lifetime destination.

The absolute Alice Springs tours in this mysterious region is Uluru/Ayers Rock, set a five-hour drive into the remote outback from Alice Springs.

You’ll enter a millennia-old world of Dreamtime legends, sacred places home to ancestral spirits, dramatic rock formations and the incredible Uluru monolith itself, known to the Aboriginal people as the Earth Mother and legendarily hollow home to vast power.

Nearby are deep, shaded gorges, caves resplendent with Aboriginal rock art and cool desert pools perfect for a refreshing swim.

For a short but fascinating glimpse of the town at the heart of Australia, an Alice Springs tour is just the thing. Colonial mansions, suburban Aboriginal settlements, several museums tracing the history of the town and that of its local indigenous peoples, an Aviation Museum tracing the history of the Flying Doctor service and the Alice Springs Desert Park are just a few of the attractions here.

Kings Canyon Australia

For longer Alice Springs tours, a trip to Kings Canyon opens up an ancient land full of amazing sights. The canyon itself is massive, falling 270m through eerie rock formations and past tropical pools, and the views from its highest point over the deserted land are stunning.

The beehive rock formations known as the Secret City have witnessed endless ages, and a night under the incredible glow of the stars is an unforgettable experience.
