Alice Springs and the APY Lands

Although traditionally regarded as a small, dusty town with a few rustic buildings, Alice Springs today offers all of the shopping, sight-seeing and entertainment facilities of a modern urban town, and is home to a thriving arts community and a wealth of adventure opportunities. In addition to its rich history and diverse cultural heritage, you can explore the local sports teams, photography, camping, hiking, motor sports, desert-racing and more, whilst benefiting from the relaxed country atmosphere, fantastic weather and internationally-renowned environment.

The Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yunkunytjatjara (APY) Lands covers over 103,000 square kilometres of remote South Australia, near the tri-state border. Home to around 3000 people of Aboriginal descent over seven main communities and seventeen homelands, the land was returned to the traditional owners in 1981.The area itself is a vital part of Aboriginal desert culture, with many people there identifying the history and basic laws of human existence as largely being written in the land.
