Located between the East and West MacDonnell Ranges, Alice Springs is Australia’s most famous outback town. Without a doubt, renting a car is the best way to experience the region and you don’t really need a 4WD.

Contrary to belief, the outback is not just flat and dusty. It has a very diverse ecosystem with ancient mountains, like the Flinders Ranges, and lots of trees. There are glistening salt lakes fringed by endless grassy plains, and for a special experience you can consider booking a hot-air balloon trip to absorb the vastness of this land.

You cannot see the town from the airport. It is located on the other side of the MacDonnell Ranges, a short drive along the Stuart Highway and in through Heavitree Gap. The airport is well-signposted from Alice Springs and its surrounding areas.

6

You might get caught even in the smallest town for using your mobile while driving or driving under the influence of alcohol.
