The center includes a range of different habitats, from the Gecko Cave to sand enclosures.

Alice Springs Highlights Half-Day Tour
This tour allowed us the opportunity to visit a range of local activities around Alice Springs. Being in an organised group meant that the venues were prepared for our arrival and that presentations immediately commenced maximising the time spent at each place.

The Desert Park and Alice Springs Half Day Tour is highly recommended.

Alice Springs Highlights Half-Day Tour
The desert park first thing in the morning is well worth a visit. The displays and talks are excellent especially the wild bird feeding. Despite arriving early we didn't have time to see everything before the bus arrived to take us back to town at noon. In the afternoon the Town Like Alice tour was great. We visited all the main attractions and had a telegram sent to us at the Overland Telegragh Station. Sufficient time was given to wander about and take things in plus the Reptile Park was a great experience to see and learn about Australian snakes, lizards and crocodiles.

Alice Springs Highlights Half-Day Tour
Bit of a mix up unfortunately My fault and tour people as well Thought we were doing a half day tour Alice springs but we’re dropped of in morning at dessert park which I might say was fantastic then picked up dropped back to motel which is great Received a call later on for afternoon tour of Alice but I thought we had already done half day so didn’t want to be dishonest and take another trip My mistake I guess but it would help if tour company would explain the day ahead so people like myself understand and don’t miss out on the full day

Alice Springs Highlights Half-Day Tour
Our guide Tash took us to the RFDS, School of the Air, the original telegraph station and initial site which included Alice's Spring and ANZAC Hill. Certainly worth the trip and we found Tash to be very knowledgeable. The tour gave us an insight as to the importance of Alice Springs to the outback.

The Alice Springs Reptile Centre is in central Alice Springs, less than half a mile (just 650 meters) from the Alice Springs Interchange bus station. Buses 400 and 401 run roughly every 90 minutes during the day Monday through Saturday, covering routes including Larapinta Drive; get off at Bath Street for the reptile center.
