Alice Springs Transport Guide

Unfettered by the 4WDs and utes that populate the outback, Alice Springs is compact enough to make your way around town on foot. What’s out of reach within the town by foot can usually be accessed via bicycle.

How to get around Alice Springs

Taxis assemble near the visitors centre and are easy to pick up should you need a lift to the airport or the other side of town in a hurry. There is a public bus service that operates around the town, however the service is quite limited so be sure to plan ahead to make the connection. The Alice Wanderer Centre Sightseeing bus does a loop around the major sights, including the old telegraph station, the School of the Air, the Old Ghan Museum and the Cultural Precinct, allowing you to get on and off wherever you like. Car hire is also available if you wish to see the sights and travel further afield.
