Enjoy a half day sightseeing tour of the remote Red Centre town of Alice Springs. Known to locals as Alice, the town is situated roughly in Australia’s geographic centre, almost equidistant from Adelaide and Darwin.
One of the first stops on the tour is at the world-renowned Royal Flying Doctor Service, which has been providing a lifeline for those who live in rural and remote Australia for more than 90 years. The Visitor Centre is located in the original 1939 building which housed the first RFDS Alice Springs Base radio operator.
We also visit the School of the Air which provides an education for those children who live in the most remote areas of the Outback; and the Old Telegraph Station, now a museum and the site of the old springs from which Alice gets its name.
The tour finishes with a stop at Anzac Hill, whose lookout point offers a panoramic view of Alice Springs and the surrounding MacDonnell Ranges. The Anzac Hill Memorial was unveiled on 25 April 1934 (Anzac Day) and is a memorial to all those who have served in the defence of Australia during wartime.
