Alice Explorer

The Alice might be the gateway to the heart of Australia, but this town also holds some of its very own gems. Now is your chance to explore the iconic sites of the Alice to discover its significant place in Australian history.

Visit the attraction triangle where you have time to visit two of the following venus. 

Visit the Royal Flying Doctor Service Base to learn about the vital medical care the service provides to thousands of Australians living in Outback Australia. 

The National Pioneer Women’s Hall of Fame, one of three women’s museums in Australia, celebrating women in history who have made a significant contribution to Australia’s heritage. 

Alternatively, if you want to get up close and personal with the reptiles of the Australian Outback visit the Reptile Centre, where you will meet Terry the Saltwater Crocodile and a range of other scaly friends such as goannas, frill-neck lizards and thorny devils. The choice is yours, tour times will be explained to you by you or Great Southern Rail Guide. 

Re-join the group and travel to the historical precinct of The Alice Springs Telegraph Station. Here you’ll learn about day to day life of the first European settlement in Alice Springs and how the station played a pivotal role in bridging the isolation and communication gap between remote Australian towns. Established in 1872 to relay messages between Darwin and Adelaide, it is the best preserved of the 12 stations along the Overland Telegraph Line.
