Touring Alice Springs

One problem with my trip to Australia was its short duration -- I was unable to visit Uluru (aka Ayers Rock).

Instead, I had a short stay in Alice Springs, which at least partially met my need to visit the "Red Center."

My home base in Alice Springs was The Territory Inn.

The main drag.

A historic building in Alice Springs town center: Adelaide House.

Sometimes there is a river near Alice Springs -- just not now.

Making the rounds: this bus can take tourists to some of the many attractions.


Old trains.

And another plane.


A sacred hill.

Grave of the famous Aboriginal artist Albert Namatjira.

The original Alice Springs: the telegraph station.

A war memorial atop a hill south of downtown. (Why was the picture taken at an angle? Ah...)
