Alice Springs

Inside the Hilton Doubletree Hotel, Hanuman creates an Asian inspired atmosphere with its decorations and lighting in striking contrast with the Australian desert right in front of the door. The lively and stylish dining room is a favourite among both locals and tourists.


In Alice Springs, there is something suitable for every budget, and most places are dotted around the centre allowing easy access. The greatest thing about Centralian food is that it matches its surroundings: hearty, wholesome, and plentiful. Make sure to try some local meats such as kangaroo, emu, or camel. You may even venture to try buffalo, crocodile or the varying flavours of bush tucker. However, if your tastes are more in line with contemporary Australian cuisine, you can count on anything from French bread to mouthwatering steaks, and from Asian curries to bush tucker in all the cafes, pubs, and restaurants around town.
