Owner description: Alice Springs Desert Park is an inspiring portrayal of Australia’s central desert environment that effortlessly blends the plants, birds, animals and people of our arid regions within one, extraordinary tourism and conservation facility. Our ‘natural’ attraction is as distinctive as the Australian desert itself - a truly unique experience that continues to captivate and educate travellers from every corner of the globe. There’s much more to deserts than meets the eye and our visitors are astonished by the life and beauty they discover on their journey with us.

“Fabulous birdshow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

We didn't have a lot of time here which was a shame as I would have liked to see more of the shows and talks. The bush tucker lady was informative and the bird show amazing! The birds just show up on queue as the ranger talks about them and they fly right over your head in the outdoor auditorium! It's amazing - I know they are trained but it really is good and I really recommend it - the kids would love it!

“Fantastic way to see how the centre evolved.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

The first thing to do is to check out the cinema, and the documentary, wait until the end when the the curtain comes down.

“Don't miss this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

Absolutely brilliant. The gardens, the raptor show, the birds and aviaries, the nocturnal house, can't recommend this too highly. Just go!

“Excellent , worth visiting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Excellent day out . Only criticism is that one of the finches in the enclosures tried to swoop us like 4 times. Brilliant park , took about 1000000000000 photos for my geography class to look at . The reptile enclosure was excellent , makes Adelaide zoo's look poor in comparison. I think , however , that it would be more appreciated by people 15 years and up.
