Alice Springs was established by early explorers and remains as the centre of activity in Central Australia, comprising desert landscapes, picturesque gorges, remote Aboriginal communities and a charming pioneering history. Framed by the MacDonnell Ranges and an intense desert landscape, the township of Alice Springs is Australia's most famous Outback town. Called Mpwante by the traditional owners, the Arrernte people, and situated just 124 miles (200 kilometres) south of the geographic centre of Australia, the town of Alice Springs began as a repeater station along the Overland Telegraph Line.

The introduction of camels, development of pastoral industry and discovery of alluvial gold, combined with the town's secluded location, has lead to the creation of an unrivalled community identity and a wealth of quirky festivals and events. Central Australia is a great base to explore the Outback and the surrounding sights, allowing you to feel what it would be like to live here hundreds of years ago in such a vastly isolated area.
