Birdwatching in the Alice Springs Desert Park

Alice Springs is a birdwatcher’s paradise, with natives everywhere. No-one can visit the desert without hearing the screech of a cockatoo or the melodic call of a pied butcher bird. The diverse landscapes of Central Australia support around 180 bird species, including many species of waterfowl.

Devils Marbles

The Devils Marbles are huge granite boulders scattered across a wide, shallow valley, 100 kilometres south of Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory. Many of the giant stones are precariously balanced on top of one another, appearing to defy gravity. They continue to crack and erode today, creating an ever-changing landscape.

Kings Canyon

The soaring sandstone walls of Kings Canyon were formed when small cracks eroded over millions of years. Derived from an Aboriginal word referring to the umbrella bush that thrives here, the Luritja Aboriginal people have called the Watarrka National Park area home for more than 20,000 years.

The 36 domes that make up Kata Tjuta are spread over an area of more than 20 kilometres. The highest point is Mount Olga, which was named in honour of Queen Olga of Württemberg.

Darwin’s Waterfront

Much of Darwin’s action happens along its revitalised waterfront, which is lined with restaurants, shops, sandy lagoons and parklands. Swim in the lagoon, fish from the wharf, dine alfresco on just-caught seafood and wander past the waterfront mansions. You can also trace the area’s rich history in walking trails and public artworks.
