Alice Springs is primarily a desert land as is evident from the Alice Springs Desert Park. Not many know this but 70% of Australia’s land mass is made up of desert. The Desert Park is an open space and can be visited during the day or after nightfall. Walk around on a 75-acre protected land with Aboriginal guides who will add to the tour by telling you the tales of the land and the flora and fauna that thrive in the arid desert environment. Apart from having the largest nocturnal animal house in the southern hemisphere, the Desert Park also sports 320 types of plants species. Everyday there’s a presentation on birds of prey which you don’t want to miss!
There aren’t many opportunities out there to go and just explore the desert in its natural habitat- strong winds and grainy air included. Since it’s a massive park, take your time to explore, understand and marvel at one of the unique ecosystems of nature.

Well set out and conceived. Great setting with the McDonnell ranges behind. Bird show excellent. Pass let's you come and go within the day. Close to town. Concentrates on native animals. Decent value.
Loved it! We just missed the birds display and no single were out when we were their but the park itself it well set up and very well run. Maybe give the good shop a miss over priced for a bit so good fruit salad...
It was hot when we were there so it was a bit hard to get out and about with the young kids. We got there early and saw everything. Kids loved seeing all the animals and absolutely loved seeing the eagle up close!
Great place. The raptor demonstration was very enjoyable and entertaining. Parrtjima light festival was also on and that too was a very enjoyable experience.
Great little park - prefect if this is your first time visiting Australia - however if you have been here a while and you've seen alot of native animals its not as impressive. We enjoyed it though, the shows are good.
