Alice Springs Desert Park

Zoos, Sanctuaries, Aquariums and Wildlife Parks

Alice Springs Desert Park is where the desert comes alive!

Our deserts are rich with life with thousands of stories to be explored. Experience the spirit of a living culture; explore a vibrant botanic wonderland and get up close with outback animals and characters that epitomise the fun and adventurous spirit of the red centre.

Walk the Desert Park and immerse yourself in the beauty and mystery of Australia’s deserts as you wander through the ancient landscapes from dry river beds to dense woodlands full of life. Experience the night during the day in the Nocturnal House and see animals once found in abundance across the desert. Be inspired by ancient living cultures and feel the spirit with local Aboriginal guides at daily presentations. Marvel at the energy and adrenaline of free flying birds as they soar through crystal blue skies.

At night, come spotlighting with us on a Nocturnal Tour. Spotlight endangered animals of the desert in the foothills of the MacDonnell Ranges.
