Alice Springs, or the town that time forgot. There's definitely something odd about being in a completely land-locked place with thousands of km's of desert bordering the entire town. And it's effect manifests itself in various forms, both positive and negative. The Northern Territory and indeed Alice Springs has an enchanting natural beauty. To the west are the MacDonald Ranges and to the south, Uluru and the incredible Kata Tjuta National Park. Cross the border into South Australia and you'll discover insane, infinite salt pans and the mysterious Coober Pedy Opal town (seriously, fucking weird place). So if you're looking for a different kind of campervan rental adventure, then Alice Springs and the red centre is the place to see.

The Northern Territory is one of the most vibrant and exciting states in Australia. Consisting of 1.35 million square kilometres, its vast open spaces make up one sixth of the Australian continent. The Northern Territory can be divided into two distinct regions – the Top End and the Centre. Getting around this rugged playground is best on our campervan rental, where you will not miss a single landmark scheduled on your travel plan.
The Top End consists of the Territory’s capital, Darwin, and surrounding landscapes. Kakadu National Park offers a wide variety of flora and fauna, many Aboriginal paintings, and vast panoramas, escarpments and waterfalls. The Pine Creek region is noted for its historic buildings and museums, while the vast cattle surrounding Katherine offers nearby Katherine Gorge, the Cutta Cutta Caves and the Springvale Homestead as major attractions. The Wauchope region is noted for the colourful Murchison and Davenport Ranges and for the spectacular rock formations known as Devils Marbles.
The Centre combines the vigour of frontier life with the convenience of modern facilities at Alice Springs. The surrounding area is dotted with numerous scenic attractions ranging from the famous Ayers Rocks and the Olgas to the spectacular and colourful landforms of Finke Gorge, Ormiston Gorge, Simpsons Gap and Standley Chasm. Be sure to visit them all on your campervan roadtrip.

The Stuart, Arnhem, Kakadu, Victoria and Barkly highways are all weather roads, sealed for their entire length. Even so, any driving a camper van at night should be undertaken with care because of the danger from wildlife and cattle wandering accross the road. East of Darwin is Kakadu National Park, which is rich in natural and cultural heritage and this could be explored by our campervan rental Alice Springs.
South of Darwin is Katherine with its spectacular gorge, on the southern fringe of Arnhem Land. From Katherine, the Stuart Highway continues south to Alice Springs. The major town along the way is Tennant Creek, north of Devil's Marbles. Many people outside Australia think of Alice Springs as one of the most important towns in Australia. That is why our campervan depot in Alice Springs is here to assist you on your roadtrip in and out of Alice Springs.
