Best Walking Tracks in Alice Springs & the Central Desert

Alice Springs is acclaimed for its striking red desert vistas, vibrant outback personalities, thrilling adventure prospects and rich Indigenous culture. There are many Alice Springs walks in and around the town perfect for a day venture, as well as longer walks around Alice Springs such as the Mpulungkinya Walk and the world-renowned Larapinta Trail. Snaking through 223 kilometres of ancient landforms, swimming holes and significant cultural sites, this odyssey can be chewed off in sections or tackled in one long life-changing mission. Within the scenic heart of Central Australia, the Alice Springs walking trails are unlike anything else in the world.
