    Alice Springs is a regional multicultural center with approximately 27,000 people, servicing stations and Aboriginal communities. The diverse community lends the town fabulous vibrancy. We are close to some of Australia's most ancient countries and cultures here, and the very landscape with it is towering mountain range cradling the town reminds you of that daily. It is a humbling and inspiring experience.

    Alice Springs provides a fantastic base for exploring the surrounding country, which is host to a wide range of stunning gorges, permanent waterholes, walking tracks, and National Parks. The majority of these magnificent places lie in an area from ten minutes to an hour or two from town, and most are accessible by regular 2WD car, or some even by bicycle. The great weather, relentless beauty, and ease of access to the country make 'Going Bush' an option almost anytime, whether for a quick walk with the kids and dogs or to spend a few nights swagging it under the stars.

    The town is a community rich with the ancient culture and language of the region's traditional indigenous owners. There are many work opportunities, community events, sporting opportunities, children's activities and opportunities to experience a unique part of Australia.

    Alice Springs is home to a thriving theatre and gallery cultural precinct that regularly hosts nationally acclaimed touring presentations in visual art, dance, theatre, opera, music, and film. There is a lively arts scene with something for everyone on the local level, no matter your skill or interest level. Territory Craft, the NT Writers' Centre, Watch this Space (artist-run gallery initiative), Film NT, Imparja, Red Dust Theatre, and Music NT are just a few of the organizations with offices in town committed to providing support, workshops, opportunities, and activity for the many residents. Do not miss out on the Alice Desert Festival held every September.
