Visiting Alice Springs

(Alice Springs, Northern Territory - NT, Australia)

A true oasis standing in the heart of the North Territory's outback area, Alice Springs gained much popularity and wealth at the beginning of the 20th century, following the arrival of the Ghan train line.

Despite is rich Aboriginal heritage and historical buildings, much of Alice Springs retains a fairly modern appearance, with excellent amenities and places to visit.
