Vibrant outback town

Alice Springs is a diverse and vibrant outback town. Situated on the banks of the Todd River (which only occasionally runs with water) 'Alice' is famous for its colourful characters and welcoming feel.

A range of quirky events also provide entertainment - cheer at the Voyages Camel Cup, see the hilarious ASSA ABLOY Henley-on-Todd (a 'boat' race on the dry Todd River), or road test one of 3000 beanies at the Alice Springs Beanie Festival.
