    Fabulous outdoor bird show featuring magnificent prey birds. Jeremy was a fantastic guide with very knowledgeable information about Alice Springs, it’s culture and wildlife.

    Brolga's Kangaroo Sanctuary is a must-see for all visitors to the Alice.
    A great learning experience for kids to see baby orphaned kangaroos up close and to learn how they lost their mothers. Informative for the grown ups as well.
    Well worth the visit!

    Had the most incredible time! Thoroughly recommend the 7 day comfort trek booked through Australian Walking Holidays! We were so impressed with our three wonderful guides. Their professional service, contagious passion & detailed knowledge of the ancient landscapes, individual care, impressive culinary skills & good natured energy and sense of fun delivered by Stac, Tom & Karl. You guys are the best and delivered to all sixteen of us the holiday of a lifetime - thank you 🤠

    Fantastic time spent at RFDS museum. Had information that suited myself and my 25 yr old and 16yr old son.
    Understanding about the work of the RFDS made us realise how lucky we are. The lady who showed us around was really lovely and helpful and made us feel at home (and we are a long way from home) I felt we could have chatted for ages and she could answer all our questions (I’m so sorry I didn’t get her name)

    Wasn’t sure what to expect with ‘the oldest buildings in NT’ but I was impressed - more so with the history than complex.
    The staff were friendly and coffee hot so we just wandered around and read the interp.
    it’s November so not busy at all with mainly people stopping by for refreshments off the nearby walking tracks.
    It’s all certainly worth a visit to take a look around but it shouldn’t be your sole visit.

    Located opposite the RFDS museum this is well worth a look. A very informative, but also humorous, talk about snakes and reptiles by the owner surprised many of us. Snakes, thorny devils, goannas, and the star of the show, Terry the Crocodile can all be seen here. Great place for all ages.

    Great place to get an overview visually of the town of Alice Springs. Very informative signs about the many theatres of war.

    We visited twice during our trip to Alice. We were warmly welcomed even though we arrived 15 mins before closing time. Kids were given a little activity to do while we browsed.
    We expressed interest in a particular work and Karl held it for us for a week until we returned.
    He was happy to tell us about the work but wasn’t pushy, let us ponder it and look at it quietly on our own.
    We purchased two paintings in the end and couldn’t be happier with them and the overall experience.

    Not far out of town and is sign posted.
    A short walk over good ground to the site. In November there isn’t a lick of water in the river so you could walk the bed although not easy under foot.
    Not too busy in November with just some instagrammers hanging around.
    Worth a quick visit along with some other areas of the range.

    Very impressive service
    Went there with my elderly mother for basic information about town activities, but was given a very thorough run-down of all the best places to visit while we were there. Staff member Glenn Nelson was extremely helpful, loves the town he lives in and wants people to enjoy the experience. 5*

    just visit this one and forget the rest (omnistron gorge, glen helen gorge, etc).

    ormistron gorge is so-so

    glen helen gorge resort is closed so you cant access the property en route to the gorge itself, although there is a separate 15 min trail leading to it.
