Itinerary

You will be picked up from your hotel in Alice Springs and taken for this sightseeing tour in an air conditioned vehicle. Your driver is also your guide for this tour.

You will see:

Historic Telegraph Station: This is a popular and recommended attraction for people interested in the history of the outback. Alice Springs obtained its name from the waterhole at the Overland Telegraph Station established in 1872 to relay messages between Darwin and Adelaide. This historical reserve marks the original site of the first European settlement in Alice Springs.

Royal Flying Doctors Service: Royal Flying Doctors Service is the perfect way to develop an understanding of the lifestyles of people living in the outback and the hardships they face everyday.

School of the Air: The school is an important part of the history of Alice Springs. Opened in 1951, it has been broadcasting to children of isolated communities throughout a 1.3 million square kilometre 'classroom'. Interpretive displays demonstrate the important role it has in the Outback and on school days you can hear lessons being broadcast.

Alice Springs Reptile Park: At the Alice Springs Reptile Park you will see unique Central Australian reptiles, such as the Perentie Lizard and Thorny Devil.

Anzac Hill: This is the most visited site in Alice Springs and offers incredible views of the city.

At the end of the tour, you will be dropped off to your hotel in Alice Springs.
