    What to Expect
    Make your own way to Alice Springs Desert Park for your self-guided tour. You'll receive a park map and schedule that helps you to plan your visit.

    You can follow a walking trail that leads you through the three main desert environments of Australia—woodland, sand, and river. Along the way, learn about the distinct flora and fauna of these delicate ecosystems.

    Find out which creatures stir at night in the desert when you step inside the nocturnal house exhibit. There, you can watch rare and endangered animals that only come out in the dark, such as carnivorous ghost bats and bilbies (macrotis). Or head to the outdoor amphitheater to admire birds of prey in flight. Then peek into a waterhole in the aquarium to observe fish, turtles, burrowing frogs, and yabbies.

    During talks by the staff, you hear about the traditions of the Aboriginal Arrernte people, and their dreamtime stories, which illustrate connections between the people and the land.

    Facilities include a café, electric scooters for hire, gift shop and a picnic area.

    Things didn't start out well being charged full price for entry even though we are clearly Seniors because we sensibly left most of our documents at home and travelling only with minimal cards etc. A Driving License is insufficient. Pretty disappointing. Signage upon entry is...More

    Informative, entertaining and educational. I have a new found respect for the desert and mother nature's powerful secrets. The bird show was simply stunning.
