MacDonnell Ranges

These fabulous mountains stretch for 644 km both east and west of Alice, with numerous waterholes, beautiful gorges, historic sites and Aboriginal rock art as well as plenty of walking trails, wildlife and good bush camping. Some places are within a reach of 10-20 km from town, so head here and enjoy its rich atmosphere.

Do & See

Alice Springs is a great base for a holiday in Central Australia, so do allow at least a week to see the town and the surrounding area. Although you will likely still barely scratch the surface of what there is to do and see, the following spots should not be missed.
