Alice Springs is located in the heart of central Australia at the base of the MacDonnell Ranges. This isolated town is the gateway to the outback. It is also the centre point between Darwin to the north and Adelaide to the south on the Stuart Highway.
The major attraction of central Australia is Uluru, also known as Ayres Rock, which is roughly a 500km drive from Alice Springs. Many travellers fly into Alice Springs and drive to Uluru to experience the beauty of the Australian outback as part of their holiday adventure.
