Aboriginal employment

The Alice Springs Desert Park showcases to visitors, Central Australia’s unique fauna and flora, in a series of natural habitats. Our park is a key tourism attraction, providing economic outcomes for the region and the Territory by attracting more visitors and encouraging them to stay longer.

We contribute to conservation outcomes by breeding threatened species and delivering environmental education through interpretation and education to the public and schools. We also deliver social outcomes through Aboriginal employment and improving cross-cultural understanding.

Aboriginal employment is a strength at the Desert Park. Thirty per cent of our staff are local Aboriginal people. We employ Apmereke-artweye (Traditional Owners) and other local elders as contractors for advice, guidance, permission and training.
