Famously known for Uluru, the Red Centre region of Central Australia is a desert environment with mainly dry hot summers and cool dry winters. The area draws tourist interest due to the town of Alice Springs and the impressive natural attractions in the area such as Palm Valley National Park, the West MacDonnell Ranges, the Finke Gorge and popular events such as the Camel Cup. ‘The Alice’ is the second largest town in the Territory with more than 25.000 people calling it home. The town has all the amenities one needs, with shopping malls, schools and recreational activities available
