”The Alice” lies romantically centre stage in the heart of Australia and is considered the unofficial capital of the Outback. Once regarded as a “dead heart” during colonial times thanks to surrounding barren landscapes, today both residents and visitors recognize the physical and spiritual importance of Australia’s Centre. It is a beating heart, alive with Aboriginal traditions and sacred sites, a vibrant local art culture, fascinating pioneering history and incredible landscapes. It is one of the most interesting places on the continent and most people agree that you haven’t seen the Outback until you’ve seen Alice.
