It is a major tourist center due to its proximity to national parks (particularly theUluru – Kata Tjuta National Park), canyons, valleys gorges and swimming holes and is well served by air services to major cities. It is also home to a lot of recreational facilities such as casinos, pools, art galleries and golf courses.
With hot and dry summers and temperate winters — not to mention warm days and cold overnight temperatures — Alice Spring’s climate is typical of any desert town in Australia.
