Visit Alice Springs - Best of Alice Springs

It all began with a Telegraph Station. The European settlers set up a Telegraph precinct to relay messages to and from Adelaide and Darwin. The town however gets its name from a spring not far from the precinct. The semi-permanent source of water was called Alice and so the town came to be known as Alice Springs. Compared to the rest of the cities in Australia, Alice Springs has its own charm that is found nowhere else. One of the best places where you’ll get a deep insight into the Aboriginal culture, undulating desert landscapes and gorges, Alice Springs makes for the perfect spot to explore Central Australia. This rugged little town with its quirks, history and myths makes for an interesting visit.
