About Life in Alice Springs

Year round blue skies, stunning landscapes and vibrant, diverse and warm communities – that’s life in the Northern Territory! Only a short flight from most Australian cities, Alice Springs is not just a must-see destination renowned for its identity and rich cultural heritage, but is a remarkable community to set up home in!

Alice Springs is one of the most remote places in the world, but it’s no country town. The Alice is a major communications and commercial centre, with services you would find in any Australian city. It has a world-class teaching hospital, a university, two shopping malls, numerous private and public schools and a variety of recreational facilities. Because of its size and remoteness, the Alice is home to a close-knit and engaged community.
