Northern Territory, Australia / Attractions, Sites to See and Things To Do

  • Alice Springs: It's the heart of Australia, the capital of the Outback and the most romantic country town in the world. It's where the Arrernte Aboriginal tribal group have lived for 20,000 years and where pioneer men and women gave "tough" a new meaning. It's where they race camels, hold hilarious holiday regattas in dry river beds and where Peter Finch finally caught up with Virginia McKenna in the 1956 film classic "A Town Like Alice".
  • Alice Springs Region: Alice Springs and its immediate surroundings present many options for delving further into the cultural, historical history of Alice Springs, and the nature and environmental of Central Australia.
