Alice Springs Desert Park is an inspiring portrayal of Australia’s desert environment that effortlessly blends the plants, animals and people of our arid regions.
In the space of just a few hours, visitors can discover how the desert comes alive. Hundreds of species of plants and animals found across Central Australian deserts can be seen, smelt and heard at the park. Visitors will even have the opportunity to experience desert habitats as they are at night, seeing some of the animals near impossible to see in the wild.
When visitors leave the Desert Park they will go away with new stories, skills and some of the secrets of the desert.
Guided tours and activities can be tailored creating an educational environment for your clients.
A tour of the Desert Park hosted by one of our guides is a fantastic way to learn about the secrets of Central Australia. The park’s guide team includes Central Australian Aboriginal people who have a wide knowledge of the plants, animals and people of Central Australia.
