Alice Springs has a rich Aboriginal history. The local Central Arrernte people make up a significant population of the town with the traditional name for Alice Springs being ‘Mparntwe’. Several sites of cultural importance can be found throughout the region. Why not visit Emily’s Gap, Heavitree Gap or Billy Goat Hill to pay tribute to the traditional custodians of the land and admire the beautiful natural surrounds. Indigenous artwork and sculptures are also displayed in many galleries throughout Alice Springs and are definitely worth checking out if you have the time.
For those looking for a real adventure why not hire a four wheel drive and explore the Finke Gorge National Park. Situated about 2 hours drive from Alice Springs, there is several days worth of hiking, camping and exploring to be had in the Park. Finke Gorge National park is only accessible by 4WD and at certain times of year not accessible at all. When planning your trip be sure to check with local authorities to ensure it is safe to get there.
