We only had a day in Alice Springs and wanted to see the Namatjira paintings recommended by a friend. The Culural Precinct is a little out of town so we caught a taxi. It is well worth the visit. The Namatjira paintings are beautiful and worth seeing as are the other interesting exhibitions by other artists including the beannie display.... More

Very disappointed with this attraction. The art gallery was nothing much although the museum was interesting as was the on board video about the establishment of air travel at the aviation museum. The best part was experiencing the locals while travelling on the local bus to get there and back.

Get there when this place opens. Do this to give youself time to visit all the areas. The Research Centre itself deserves half a day. The bonus is the Aviation buildings near the Cemetery. The cemetery should be visited in conjunction with everything else.

For a little town in the middle of the NT, this resident art collection is seriously impressive. Definitely worth stopping for a look.

We did a quick trip through the Beanie Festival. The parking was plentiful and shady. The exhibit space was spacious and comfortable, clean and modern.

The precinct is worth visiting and the exhibitions are interesting if a little small; it doesn't take more than a couple if hours to see it all.

Beanie Festival time. Precinct in full use. Wonderful venues and art spaces , facilities and shop. One has to be bold and wander through the tourist areas to find information, ranger, exhibits, and cafe's etc.

This is THE festival to attend. Heaps of weird and wonderful beanies in all crazy shapes and fabulous colours are on display. No doubt you will love it. And of cause you will buy a beanie or two. You just can’t help yourself. You will laugh your head off when you see all these funny beanies. The festival is all... More
