Alice Springs Desert Park
Alice Springs Desert Park Review
Focusing on the desert, which makes up 70% of the Australian landmass, this 75-acre site contains 320 types of plants and 120 animal species in several Australian ecosystems—including the largest nocturnal-animal house in the southern hemisphere. An open air habitat is also open at night, when animals are most active. Local Aboriginal guides share their native stories about the wildlife and the land. Don't miss the twice daily birds of prey presentation. Allow about four hours to explore the park; it's 6½ km (4 miles) west of Alice Springs, and is on the Alice Wanderer and Tailormade bus itineraries.
