ALL ABOUT ALICE

Australian Mountain Bike - - Between The Tape -

FOR THE FAM­ILY

Don’t miss a trip to the Alice Springs Desert Park. This is great to do at the start of a visit, as you’ll find out so much more about ev­ery­thing you’ll see on your ex­pe­ri­ence in Alice. Make sure you time your visit for the bird show – it’s well worth it! al­ice­springs­de­sert­park.com.au

FOR THE VIEWS

Pack your hik­ing shoes and walk up to Mt Gillen, which over­looks all of Alice Springs. The in­for­mal trail runs from the back of Flynn’s Grave, and al­low at least 3 hours for a round trip. The top sec­tion is a true rock scram­ble with a lit­tle bit of climb­ing in­volved.

FOR THRILLSEEKERS

Book a morn­ing with Out­back Quad Ad­ven­tures, and ex­pe­ri­ence Un­doolya sta­tion at high speeds aboard a Po­laris quad bike. This is no se­date tourist paced ride – get ready to hold on tight! out­back­quadad­ven­tures.com.au

FOR A SLOWER PACE

Swap the bike sad­dle for the back of a camel. The gen­tle roll of a tour on a camel shouldn’t be missed, and this is a great way to end the day as the sun goes down – we rec­om­mend the sun­set op­tion. cameltracks.com

TASTE THE DESERT

Want to eat out one night? Then book in with Bob Tay­lor. Ex­pe­ri­ence a din­ner party set­ting with top qual­ity food based on flavours of the Aus­tralian bush. An ex­pe­ri­ence not to be missed. rt­tour­saus­tralia.com.au
