Alice Springs — 11 nights

Situated right in the heart of Australia, Alice Springs serves as an urban oasis deep within the country’s parched, desert-like Red Center.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Alice Springs Telegraph Station Historical Reserve and Hermannsburg Historic Precinct. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Simpsons Gap and Ochre Pits. The adventure continues: take in the dramatic natural features at Chambers Pillar, explore the landscape on two wheels at Simpsons Gap Bicycle Path, tour the pleasant surroundings at Alice Springs Reptile Centre, and head outdoors with Ellery Creek Big Hole.
