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.

I actually find this quiet boring. How many birds and kangaroos can u look at? The bird show is ok but still kinda boring, is abit long, and coz its so hot u gotta walk for ages outside to see the next bird! I'd rather the reptile centre in alice

Loved the park! Loved the bird show and talk, bird aviaries and nocturnal house. Beautiful surroundings.

There is a huge amount to see and learn about here. Three different kinds of desert environment have been created right next to the MacDonnell ranges and you learn something at every step. We were introduced to several native bird species by some of the park rangers in a very original way and our talk on the Aboriginal way of life taught me more than I have read in books over a decade of interest in the subject. We happened upon one of the rangers passing through the nocturnal room and had a personal guide who went out of his way to help us understand what we were looking at. Brilliant. Bravo to the Desert Park!

Nestling between the mountain ranges around Alice Springs, this desert park is well worth a few hours' visit. The scenery itself is worth the trip, but the ranger talks are very interesting indeed and the birds of prey display with a very informative ranger was wonderful. There are dozens of beautiful birds in large aviaries which you can get very close to; red kangaroos (mostly lying around); reptiles of all kinds.
