Alice Desert Festival

Discover the great outback of Australia by attending the Alice Desert Festival, Central Australia’s premier arts and cultural festival. The Festival celebrates the rich and ancient culture of Central Australia through live and digital performances, music, dance and the visual arts. The best way to learn about the culture is to completely immerse you within such an environment, experiencing everything where it actually happened, and learning from people who have grown and lived with the culture.

The Festival also showcases some of the best and brightest creative minds in Australia, exhibiting the talent that can be found in Alice Springs, Australia and even internationally. The Festival is one not-to-miss, and an experience you will cherish forever.

What is amazing about Alice Springs is that there is many areas surround the beautiful city including the deep red rolling dunes of the Simpson Desert, the ancient red cabbage palm trees of Finke Gorge National Park, or drive south to the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, home to the world-famous and iconic Uluru/ Ayres Rock.

In such a vast and diverse place, a caravan is the best way to choose your own itinerary and be able to discover everything that you would like to. A campervan is one of the best and most popular ways of travelling around Central Australia. There will always be many powered sites, so that you can recharge comfortably after a day of exploring. Many campervans offer double beds, all-inclusive kitchens, bathrooms and plenty of room to relax.
