Steeped in ancient Aboriginal culture, Alice Springs is a town which embodies the true Australian outback spirit.
Plans are underway to rejuvenate its town centre, improving liveability and attractiveness for residents and visitors.
Already alive with arts and events, the Northern Territory Government’s vision is to develop Alice Spring as Australia’s Inland Capital, creating a must visit destination on the list for visitors.
This presents possibilities for connecting people, culture and history in a move that will drive innovation and investment for Australia’s Inland Capital.
The revitalisation of Alice Springs will create exciting opportunities and breathe new life into the town’s centre.
