What to Expect
Tour the main sights of Alice Springs in one lovely afternoon.
Visit The School of the Air, where children with no access to schools have the opportunity to observe radio programs as they are happening and derive lessons from the air. Afterwards, stop in at the historic Telegraph Station, which marks the original site of the first European settlement in Alice Springs, and continue the tour with a visit to the Royal Flying Doctors Service, where you can learn about how medical aid reaches those that live in the remote Australian outback.
Before the tour is over, visit the Alice Springs Reptile Centre, and get up close and personal with the many lizards and snakes that frequent Central Australia's semi-arid desert, such as the Perentie Lizard and the Thorny Devil. The tour concludes with a stunning panoramic view of the township of Alice Springs and the MacDonnell Ranges from the top of Anzac Hill.
