Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Northern Territory / Red Centre / Alice Springs / Alice Springs Desert Park
Alice Springs Desert Park portrays Australia's central desert environment, a rare blend of plants, birds, animals, and people. This facility contains native animals and plants representative of the dry central region and contributes to the wildlife preservation through research programs and public education. The area is culturally important to the local Arrernte people, once known as this land's traditional owners. Much of the work is performed under the auspices of this indigenous group, who are caretakers of the park. Stop by to hear interesting lectures, such as the aboriginal use of local plants for food, or visit the nocturnal exhibit, situated in a low-light building with offset day and night schedule to induce the night critters to come in the early morning before it gets too hot. See Alice Springs Desert Park and all Alice Springs has to offer by arranging your trip with our Alice Springs trip builder.

Fantastic outback backdrop for a super park. It is well done -- with different areas, easily walkable, and lots of animals to see. The bird show was terrific, and a zookeeper provided us with a...

Alice Springs Desert Park is certainly a 'must see' location on a trip to Central Australia. The Guides provide excellent insights and the park itself is stunning

A perfect place to visit for families. The scheduled sessions are very informative and useful. A nice staff shew us the native coconut, it's amazing. We looked around for it in Alice Spring and found a good one too. My kid loved it. The bird show is in a very natural environment, so different from those ones in the city. The photo opportunity with rescued birds are very reasonable and animals are handled with care and respect.
Wonderful park, probably the best wildlife park I have ever been to. Quite expensive but worth the money for anyone wanting to see a wide range of wildlife. The birds outside the exhibits were just as good as those in them! Helpful staff and cute gift shop. Really terrific day.
Great Park!! I have visited a lot of wildlife attractions but this was different and interesting. Focused on the desert and arid habitats. Movie kind of outdated but animals and plants superb. I am keen birdwatcher and the bird collection was stunning! (Photo opportunities inside and as well outside of aviaries.) I liked the overall atmosphere of the Park. The Bird show was intriguing. The only thing I did not like: the presentation about Aboriginal people was not done by an Aboriginal person. Cafe closed. Stuff friendly but only one lady at the counter. Recommended. (May 22)
Was a great experience, coming back to this place after 23 years - what a difference! Very interesting park, lots of birds & the Flying Bird Show was great. Was a shame that the dingos were being fed right before or after the Flying Bird Show ended and no dingos were in sight - bad timing!
We were welcomed by Reuben at the entrance. He is very informative and passionate about flora, fauna and fire. The park is beautiful and well worth the visit. We learnt so much about the desert and the history of Alice Springs and Mac Donnell ranges. The bird show is a must see! Seriously! The movie is also very informative, entertaining and a great watch. There are a myriad of animals and plants to see. We also LOVED the nocturnal house :)
