If you visit Alice Springs you MUST visit this amazing precinct. They have wonderful exhibitions of local and indigenous art and craft, an amazing research centre and museum and aircraft museum. Give yourself plenty of time to explore, investigate and enjoy what is one of the country's best.

A must to visit and the staff were courteous especially a lass called Silvana , she made us feel welcome from the start . She had a wealth of knowledge about the area and the numerous art work displayed. People enjoyed her exuberance and professional manner.

Make sure you you visit this wonderful cultural centre when visiting Alice Springs. It has a wide range of local artists and the different styles of painting both traditional and contemporary. In addition there is a small but excellent collection of non Indigenous artworks which give much pleasure.

Great galleries full of fascinating art works which really are amazing. Quite a large place so take your time to look around and absorb the indigenous culture and history tied up in the artwork. The precinct also has a theatre for various events and an aviation museum which is worth a look. There is another great little gallery and workshop... More

We came to see the Albert Namatjira Gallery but also visited the other art exhibits. The Museum of Central Australia has great animal exhibits (good for children), but we found the Aviation Museum not worth the visit (sorry!).

Between the art exhibition, the Central Australian museum and the aviation museum you can easily pass 2 - 3 hours in air-conditioned bliss. Don't miss these exhibitions next time you visit the Alice. I highly recommend it.

This is situated in the centre of Alice Springs & is a chance to see Aboriginal Art & Culture, be warned though that the flies are a real nuisance! Be sure to practice your "Aussie Wave" before venturing out!

Can't understand why in a cultural place they would not have local aboriginal works on offer to buy. Craft shop is tacky. Albert Namatjira works on display are fantastic as is the other aboriginal works. Better signage to Alberts Namatjira grave site would be helpful.

I just love going up this hill and seeing the view. I took my wife here and she enjoyed it, so did our travelling companion. Missed out on seeing the sunset this time. We did go after dark and enjoyed seeing the lights. I would put this down as a must do .
