    A magical experience
    The Nocturnal Tour is a wonderful opportunity to experience what Australian wildlife used be like before introduced species shrunk the populations of our native nocturnal wildlife. These animals get to live in a natural environment protected from predators and we get to witness them. Well worth the additional price adding on to a Desert Park day park.

    Excellent experience
    Went to the Park and wandered through until meeting a group being guided around. Joined them and found it extremely interesting with lots of information and anecdotes. Guide made sure we got to the free-flying bird demonstration which was really good. Star of the show was a Willy Wagtail that believed he was the boss - but owls, curlew, eagles, hawks, magpies and kites were terrific. So good that we waited until the afternoon show and went again. Easy way to see wildlife and to learn about culture. The nocturnal house is also very well set up and worth spending some time in - we went to the guided tour there as well. Overall extremely interesting and we would recommend any visitors to go there for a lengthy wander

    Visited Thursday 4th May. I was travelling on The Ghan and this was the excurion I was given, not my first choice. I'm glad I did it, the guide we had was very informative, the bird show amazing and the rest filled in time. We also had a buffet lunch there as well.

    This park is well worth a visit
    We arrived here early enough to see the bird exhibition at the amphitheatre, the show starts just after 10.00am and the gates are closed then and if you arrive late they don’t let you in. After the show we walked around the park visiting the various exhibits. This is a great little park and we really enjoyed our time here, it certainly helps that it is set with the backdrop of the West MacDonnell ranges. We thought the prices were fair and would recommend a visit to the park when in Alice Springs.

    Peace and tranquility.
    We arrived later in the day having just arrived from Sydney and I believe we were the only guests in the park. We missed most of the ranger talks as these occur throughout the day. There was an array of very colourful birds making an amazing sound. The whole landscape seems very alien to us from The UK. The nocturnal house was full of strange looking (for us) animals which we could easily see when the eyes had adjusted to the dark. We wished we had more time to explore more thoroughly but it was still a good experience.

    Lots of fun. Well worth a visit
    Great adventure, knowledgeable guides and lots of fun. We were there on a night when a bit storm when through. Rain, lightning and thunder but the show must go on. Once you got past being a bit damp it was well worth a visit. Animals where amazing

    A super park
    Fantastic outback backdrop for a super park. It is well done -- with different areas, easily walkable, and lots of animals to see. The bird show was terrific, and a zookeeper provided us with a talk about the dingoes. A man gave a great lecture about some Aboriginal history. The park includes a great deal to see and learn; while it is big, it is surprisingly compact. Great place for everyone -- include families with children.

    Alice Springs Desert Park is certainly a 'must see' location on a trip to Central Australia. The Guides provide excellent insights and the park itself is stunning

    We visited on a very warm day and really appreciated the fact that they were open at 8am and we could spend a few hours in the cool of the day. An excellent experience - don't miss the film at the very start as this sets you up proviing context and information about what you are about to see. Visit the nocturnal house, watch the dingos and there are several 'shows' where the guides talk you through different species. A must for young and old!

    Rude Ruben Very strong opinionated.when questions were asked his response was condescending almost antagonistic disingenuous "Sir" . He is very knowledgeable thats a given. His delivery just insulting. We Left the park feeling like we didn't deserve being Australian.

    Amazing exhibits and Show
    Fantastic collection of native flora and fauna. Especially pleased with the Nocturnal House and Raptor show. The Movie theatre finished with an unexpected WOW factor. This place is a must visit when in Alice Springs

We visited the park early one morning before driving to Kings Canyon. The bird show was excellent as was all the nature exhibits. The highlight was a brief but insightful talk by 'Ruben' one of the Indigenous hosts. Ruben taught us more about Indigenous culture in 15 mins than my entire schooling life. He also personally took time out of his busy schedule to show us all sorts of edible bush tucker. All the other hosts were excellent and happy to answer questions. Im sure visitor numbers will pick up when Covid is over. A must visit site in Alice Springs.

Without question the highlight of any Alice Springs experience, the birds of prey presentation was truely special. The host gives an informative talk covering a number of the native birds to the region and on queue each bird appears from nowhere to demonstrate a number of flying skills or tricks unique to the specie. The back drop to the stage is also stunningly encompassed by mountains in the distance.
There is a clear visible passion from the park ranger hosts who are quick to add bonus additional facts to the show as a number of impromptu guest appearances happen throughout the presentation with the local birdlife either popping in for a drink at the watering hole or soaring high above patrolling the skies. The nocturnal displays are yet another highlight within the grounds which have so much more to offer.

Fantastic to read a visit to the Desert Park was a highlight of your time in Alice Springs. We do hope you left with new appreciation of the desert.

Highlights of the visit were the nocturnal exhibit, which complemented our touring experience in Central Oz. There were several aviaries which were well presented and allowed you to walk among the birds. The landscaped park itself is very good and in keeping with the region. We were, however, pretty disappointed with all other animals. There was one kangaroo, the emu was ‘at the vet’, the two dingos had been taken for a walk and then were invisible in their enclosure, if there at all. There’s a bird show but that’s on early or late in the day and our visit didn’t match up and none of the ranger presentations were on. It’s a reasonably expensive experience ($100 for our family) and we didn’t feel it was worth the cost of the time with so many other attractions in Alice. Perhaps this is the impact of staff shortages felt everywhere (the cafe was closed for example). I hope that’s the core reason because, if not, you’d need a good reason to go for the money and as good as the nocturnal exhibit is, that’s not reason enough.

The best part was the gophers we could hire to save a lot of tiring walking. It meant we had the energy to enter all the vagaries & ranger talks, as well as have a lunch break at the cafe. The wild bird show was exceptional - showcasing a variety of partially tame wild birds that appeared on cue to receive the food reward.
We also enjoyed the site commentaries available on the net using the QR reader we used the previous day at the equally interesting cultural centre (which included the Namatjira Gallery)

The Desert Park is an excellent attraction; our big mistake was leaving our visit till mid-afternoon. We did get to join a tour of the Nocturnal House (arriving maybe 10 mins after it started) and also got to see the Bird Show. Both were excellent, with the bird show being particularly entertaining. In the Nocturnal House we saw many Australian desert animals native including malas, stick rats, bilbies and golden bandicoots, as well as other mammals and reptiles. Performers in the bird show included a magpie, a barn owl, a curlew, a whistling kite, a kestrel and a buzzard. Probably the parts of the park I enjoyed most though were some of the walk-in aviaries for small birds, where there many beautiful birds of the Australian desert lands went about their daily tasks, clearly used to their human visitors. I could have easily stayed on for a few more hours.

Absolutely delightful! The park was truly enchanting, and the guides were incredibly knowledgeable, making our experience even more enriching. The talks were perfectly scheduled, allowing us to savor them throughout the day. The bird enclosures were so captivating that we could have happily spent the entire day there. Moreover, the cafe served excellent coffee, and their toasted sandwiches were simply scrumptious. I highly recommend this park to anyone visiting Alice Springs as an excellent opportunity to learn more about the local wildlife, country, and culture. You're in for an extraordinary adventure!

One of the best things I did in Alice springs. The bird show was incredible and plenty of activities to do to fill your entire day. A special thank you to the fountain of knowledge that is Huss. Your work ethic and attitude were more than memorable and I appreciate the time and effort it took for you to ensure my experience of the park was a positive one. There should be more workers out there like you with the passion and genuine love for what you do, all the best.

A beautiful park with great staff and lots to see. The highlights include a dingo enclosure (make sure you listen to the guide presentation), a bird show with very talented birds (but could go for at least double the time length) and a very good nocturnal display. Was expecting a bit more of the Australian mammals like kangaroos and emu’s which was something I expatiate see quite a lot of. There were many bird aviaries, possibly too much of a focus on them. In the evenings there is a guided nocturnal walk that you must book in advance especially in peak season. That was very special as we saw bilbys, malas and echidnas.

This is a great 54 hectare area with 3 km of walking tracks. There are three different areas - Desert Rivers, Sand Country & Woodland. . I missed out on the sand country because I went to a talk at 11am about how Aboriginal people survived in the desert. In fact, it didn’t cover that at all but the presenter, Ruben did a rapid history of colonist/indigenous interaction and encouraged people in a rather cheeky way to learn their history and understand indigenous history.

We enjoyed the bird section and Nocturnal House and our final experience was watching a flying bird exhibition including a barn owl, a magpie, a hawk and a curlew - it was well presented and the animals swooped and soared beautifully.

This park is a must see in Alice Springs. There are lots of areas of see, outdoors and indoors, including the large nocturnal area made out to be night time. The bird Show was amazing and we got to many huge birds fly in and do their thing.
