Create an itinerary including Alice Springs Desert Park
Alice Springs Desert Park portrays Australia's central desert environment, a rare blend of plants, birds, animals, and people. This facility contains native animals and plants representative of the dry central region and contributes to the wildlife preservation through research programs and public education. The area is culturally important to the local Arrernte people, once known as this land's traditional owners. Much of the work is performed under the auspices of this indigenous group, who are caretakers of the park. Stop by to hear interesting lectures, such as the aboriginal use of local plants for food, or visit the nocturnal exhibit, situated in a low-light building with offset day and night schedule to induce the night critters to come in the early morning before it gets too hot.

  • A perfect place to visit for families. The scheduled sessions are very informative and useful. A nice staff shew us the native coconut, it's amazing. We looked around for it in Alice Spring and found a good one too. My kid loved it. The bird show is in a very natural environment, so different from those ones in the city. The photo opportunity with rescued birds are very reasonable and animals are handled with care and respect.
  • Wonderful park, probably the best wildlife park I have ever been to. Quite expensive but worth the money for anyone wanting to see a wide range of wildlife. The birds outside the exhibits were just as good as those in them! Helpful staff and cute gift shop. Really terrific day.
