Alice Springs

Alice Springs is a town in the North Territory of Australia. It is the second largest urban area in the territory, with a population of 26,486 as of 2005.

The town is almost exactly in the geographical center of Australia, and also lies in close proximity to Uluru (Ayers Rock) which is probably Australia's best known natural landmark, as well as being an important focus of aboriginal culture

Product Description:

Alice Springs is the heart of Central Australia and consists of cavernous gorges, boundless desert landscapes, remote Aboriginal communities and a charming pioneering history.

It embodies the hardy outback of the Northern Territory's Red Centre, and is a travel hub for sights and hikes in the region, such as Uluru (formerly known as Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta (formerly known as the Olgas) and Kings Canyon.

Alice Springs has quite a few interesting things to see; one of them happens every night. If you don't get out of town and watch a sunset, even just sitting off the main highway, you've missed something special.

Wink Travel Guides introduce you to the best world travel destinations, in a clear and concise way, illustrated by photos.

Alice Springs (The City Series)

By Eleanor Hogan

University of New South Wales Press
Released: 2012-11-01
Kindle Edition (337 pages)

Alice Springs (The City Series)
Product Description:

A personal, evocative, and unflinching account, this book reveals the texture of everyday life in Alice Springs, Australia, through the passage of the local seasons. Alice Springs, the most talked about yet least familiar place in Australia, is isolated and has extreme seasonal weather: searingly hot and bitterly cold. It is the heart of black Australia and the headquarters of the controversial Northern Territory Intervention. Questioning why frontier conflicts still hold sway in a place possessing a striking landscape and modern facilities, it will appeal to locals and visitors alike.
