Enjoy a half day tour of Alice Springs and learn how the town right in the middle of Australia's red centre has become one of its most iconic attractions. In one afternoon, you will start off your tour with a pick up from your hotel in Alice Springs. Your first stop will be The School of the Air, a place where children that are unable to go to school access education through radio programs broadcasting across 1.3 million square kilometers. Next, you will stop in at the historic Telegraph Station which is the original site of the first European settlement in Alice Springs. Your tour will continue to the Royal Flying Doctors Service and you will get insight on how medical aid reaches those who live in the remote Australian outback. Afterwards, you will visit Alice Springs Reptile Centre to get up close and personal with the various species of lizards and snakes that frequent the desert of Central Australia. Last but not least, your final stop before returning back to your hotel will be the top of Anzac Hill, which offers a stunning panoramic view of Alice Springs and MacDonnell Ranges.

What people are saying about Bus Tours in Northern Territory
Convenient hotel pickup and dropoff. Magical experience seeing Bruce Munro’s installation just as the sun was rising. Watching the sunrise after with a cup of hot chocolate and some bikkies in hand was a nice way to finish the tour. Our guide Dylan was accommodating and cool! Thanks for a great time!
Bus drivers are very friendly and helpful. Alighted at the Casino/Botanic Gardens, Art museum, Military museum and waterfront station. Casino is quite awesome as the interior is smoke-free and has designated smoking corner outside. Botanic gardens is quite a big walk so will only recommend it for cooler weather. Art museum could be somewhere to spent more time. Military museum have quite a few outdoor exhibitions but mostly air-conditioned. Waterfront station has a few restaurants and a water slide. Definitely worth the money :)
The tour was operated by local tour AAT King and was very punctual. They also provided snacks and hot drinks which was great in keeping us warm while we stood and waited for the sunrise. There was also toilet breaks in between the half day tour, but highly recommended not to use that toilet facility if you can (unless you have block nose on that day) :)
This activity is so good. Although we need to wake up, still it is worth it. The light is so fancy, and it is so beautiful with the rock. The view is so amazing. And because of Uluru is a place that contained a lot of mosquitoes. However, when it is in the early morning, there are no mosquitoes, so it is very good! Also, there are some coffees and cakes and biscuits for free to us! The light is so beautiful! It is so amazing! Must-go tour!
Very nice tour to start with a breakfast at 7 am at King Creek station. The Kings Canyon rum walk starts at 830 am in the morning with the guide of professional staff of AATkings. It last for 3 hours. The weather was very hot but the scenes were excellent. Totally forgotten that we woke up at 3 am as the tour pick up was at 4:15 am
