Travel Tips from people who've been to Alice Springs
Overlanders Restaursnt - 72 Hartley Street -Alice Springs - NT Australia this restaurant was a big surprise for us, we went in not quite knowing what to expect and found it to be a really enjoyable meal.  There were some nice touches such as a little stand on our table with the Irish flag, everyone was asked on their way in where they were from and the flags were put on their table. The food was really good, my husband and I both had the fillet mignon - it came out cooked as we'd ordered, the portion sizes were quite big - we really couldn't manage it all!! The menu is quite diverse including some Australian specialities - Kangaroo Mignon, camel Mignon, emu, crocodile vol-au-vent. All in all it was a very pleasant meal and not terribly expensive, cheapest main being around au$ 18 and the most expensive $65 I would really recommend this Restaurant to anyone visiting Alice Springs!!!

A definite activity you must do while here is climbing Ayer's Rock , or "Uluru" at the heart of the red center.  It's a three mile hike up the smooth surface of the largest rock in the world, with stakes and chains if you need help.  Once you're at the top, there's a large compass with the names of the different regions of Australia labeled in each direction.  Great photo opportunities. For those who have difficulty climbing, the 1/2 day walk around the base of the rock is quite stunning with lagoons and waterfalls, not to mention the local aboriginals.

I wouldn't choose to spend a lot of time in Alice Springs! I spend 2 days there and it wasn't a city for me... I used the city as a starting point for going to Uluru.. But if you find yourself stuck there go see the Baby kangaroo resque center! The Joey's are worth it and please donate money to help the center continue their work!
