A town like Alice

Alice Springs - a lovely town almost 1500 kms from the nearest capital city. "The Alice" is an oasis of modern civilisation in the middle of a vast and largely uninhabited desert. The MacDonnell Ranges provide a wonderful and picturesque backdrop for the town. The ranges stretch 400 kms from east to west on either side of Alice Springs.

The same massive earth movement that gave shape to much of Central Australia and also created Uluru and Kata Tjuta created the ranges aged between 310 to 340 million years ago.

See how green it is.

Adelaide House, the first hospital in Central Australia established by the Rev Dr John Flynn who also set up the Flying Doctor Service.
