Third city in the Northern Territory after Darwin and Broome, Alice Springs is located in the geographic center of Australia.
Alice Springs is not really like other big cities in Australia: located right in the middle of the Outback, this city often nicknamed "the Alice" has the airs of a town of the Old West frozen in time.
Its climate is also that of a desert city: while temperatures can reach 35 or 40 degrees in summer, in winter they can easily drop below zero.
Alice Springs and the red center represent the cradle of Aboriginal culture: 20% of Alice's populations are indeed native Australians.
You can therefore take advantage of your stay in this part of Australia to immerse yourself in Aboriginal culture and traditions, and to familiarize yourself with Aboriginal art which includes paintings, sculptures and woodcuts.
After a day on Alice, it's time to collect your motorhome to begin your tour of central Australia.
Renting a 4x4 can also be a good option if you decide to take the Mereenie Loop, which will take you through the Glen Helen site and take you to Kings Canyon.
The site of the rock formations of Kata Tjuta and Uluru (Ayers Rock) will of course be the highlight of your trip to Australia.
You can then decide to go north towards Darwin, or rather descend south to discover, a few hundred kilometers further, fascinating cave town of Coober Pedy.
Whatever path you take to continue your road trip in Australia, magical and atypical experiences will be waiting for you.
