Planning Your Alice Springs Visit

Are there any particular rules for wildlife areas?

Pets are generally not allowed. Please also exercise common sense and respect for the environment and community - don't drop litter!

What should I wear?

Temperatures in this part of the world can soar to 100 degrees and bushfires are not uncommon in the summer (December, January, February). Therefore, you should take the heat seriously - wear cool cotton, lather up plenty of sunscreen, bring a hat, and stay hydrated.
