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.

If you want to know about the Australian desert, go to this park. We had a self guided tour using the hand held audio commentary, which was so informative and very easy listening. We have since travelled through the desert and this park visit gave us such an appreciation of what to look for and appreciate. It's worth spending hours there.

It was recommended to us by friends to go here when we were in Alice Springs earlier this month and we are so pleased we took their advice. Located only a short distance from the centre of town with plenty of parking. Included in the entry fee you are provided with an audio device that explains the various sections of the park as you make your way around it. We spent 3 hours there, the highlights for us being the bird show and the reptile exhibit.

I love to visit nature parks and this is one of the best. You can see examples of different types of desert country, plants that grow in deserts and, most importantly, the birds and other critters that inhabit Central Australia. I visit the Desert Park at least twice every time I go to Alice Springs.
