Town of Alice Springs

It's pretty amusing when I told my friends that I'm going to Alice Springs for 5 days during my winter break.  They gave some thought that I'm going to one of the hot Springs in somewhere. XD

We are surprised that there is Kmart, Coles, Woolworth just like another suburb areas in Melbourne. 
We imagined that there shouldn't anything in the town of Alice Springs. As you know, Desert... Like rocks and sands.

Even rubbish bin with aboriginal arts!

There is many galleries which showcased the local Aboriginal Arts and art centres dotted throughout the Town. If you tend to have a whole day free in the town, you can take a "hop on-hop off" town tour to explore the town's many attractions. We arrived there in the afternoon, hence, not much time to go for other things except walk around in the town. If you are interested to visit centres like Alice Springs Reptile Centre, School of the Air Visitor Centre, you gotta take a cab and the cost is affordable.
