Attractions near the Alice Springs Airport Motel
Museum of Central Australia
This fascinating museum explores how Australia’s Red Centre has developed over time, from its very early days when the dinosaurs lived, to what you see today. Fossils of a giant freshwater crocodile and the largest bird that ever lived are just two of the highlights.
The Museum also houses a vital collection of records relating to Indigenous Australian ceremonial life in the form of recordings and objects. A free audio guide, available at the Museum or easily downloaded onto your iPod or iPhone, provides an educational experience.
Hike through the MacDonnell Ranges
With the spectacular MacDonnell Ranges on your doorstep, be sure to get out there on foot to appreciate everything this magical part of Central Australia has to offer. Stretching east and west of Alice Springs, walking trails take you past scenic gorges and ancient landscapes. Hire a mountain bike and ride along the 17-kilometre sealed bike track that runs from Flynn’s Grave just south of Alice Springs and into Simpsons Gap.
The Arrernte people consider this beautiful area a respected and spiritual site, which is home to an important waterhole. At dawn or dusk, you’re likely to spot black-footed rock-wallabies along the track.
