Alice Springs Information
Alice Springs lies in the Northern Territory and is one of the largest places in the state. You will often see the area of Alice Springs referred to as the centre of the country. For many millennia, the Arrernte people lived in the desert lands in the middle of Australia or the red center. In English, the surveyor W.W. Mills named the place ‘Alice’ after Sir Charles Todd’s wife. The town covers the Todd River and the springs that led to the area’s name. Camel trains were a common site in the olden days as a form of transport across the desert. During the Second World War, the area was extensively developed as a base for military operations. Today, the town is influenced by both its history and modern tourism. You can see a range of traditional art by Aboriginals and watch camel races and other events. The Overland Telegraph Station and other old buildings are still found here. Adelaid House, the old Courthouse, and other buildings hark back to a period in time where the area was much more hostile than today.

Finke Gorge is one of the country’s national parks that is located in the West Macs range covering some 460 square kilometres. You can see what remains of the rainforest in Palm Valley, which is now the location of special interest as a place filled with a diverse flora including the Red Cabbage Palm. This is the only location of this plant and there are only a few thousand of them found here. Many artists visit here to dramatize the foreboding and beautiful landscape.
Known as an ephemeral river, Todd River starts out in the MacDonnell Ranges. It flows through the center of Alice Springs past the Telegraph Station. Most of the year there is not much flow in the river, but when it is flowing, it carried with it much sediment that colors the water a milky brown color. The annual regatta is held here. Another event uses people inside bottomless boats that are carried around while many thousands spectate.
