    1. A Town Like Alice: Half-Day Tour of Alice Springs

    This afternoon you’ll learn how the town of Alice Springs has evolved into the central hub of the Australian outback. Your driver guide will provide details along the way as you visit historical sites and some of the essential services delivered from Alice to the community of this vast region. The first stop is the Alice Springs School of the Air which provides education to primary aged school children living on remote properties throughout the Northern Territory. Learn how this essential service is delivered via satellite across more than one million square kilometres. Alice Springs Telegraph Station: Built in 1872 to relay messages between Darwin and Adelaide, the historic Telegraph Station is the site of the first European settlement in Alice Springs. After 60 years of operation, the premises then served as a school for the local Aboriginal children...

    This excursion exceeded my expectations. Joe was an excellent tour guide & the 5 destinations were all very good. School of the Air &. the Flying Doctor are unique outback institutions. Perhaps the most entertaining place was the reptile park, where the handler is both educational & a great character!

A very full afternoon. Each tour was ideal for travellers. From School of the Air, to RFDS, to Old Telegraph Station, to Reptile outing, no stone was left unturned. The learnings and photos are one off. Informative, organised, kind and well timed.

very nice tour. The guide / driver has everything explained super, very sympathetic. The individual starting points were very informative. would book it again and again.

Plenty of information and time to check out the places we visited, our guide, Jerry, had a great deal of local knowledge and was a very good communicator.

Great trip. The pools were relieving to the temperature. I was the only one on the tour and the guide made the experience friendly.
