Situated right in the heart of Australia, Alice Springs serves as an urban oasis deep within the country’s parched, desert-like Red Center.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Alice Springs Telegraph Station Historical Reserve and Alice Springs School of the Air Visitor Centre. There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Alice Springs Reptile Centre, take in the exciting artwork at Yubu Napa Art Gallery, examine the collection at Adelaide House Museum, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Gillen.

For where to stay, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Alice Springs trip planning site .

Tokyo, Japan to Alice Springs is an approximately 16-hour flight. Expect much hotter temperatures when traveling from Tokyo in March; daily highs in Alice Springs reach 40°C and lows reach 21°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Tue) so you can travel to Melbourne.

The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Lake Wendouree and Eastern Beach Reserve.

Dedicate the 10th (Wed) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens, meet the residents at Melbourne Zoo, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, and enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour.
