What to expect
Make your own way to Alice Springs Desert Park for your self-guided tour. Receive a park map and schedule that helps you to plan your visit. You can follow a walking trail that leads you through the three main desert environments of Australia—woodland, sand, and river. Along the way, learn about the distinct flora and fauna of these delicate ecosystems. Find out which creatures stir at night in the desert when you step inside the nocturnal house exhibit. There, you can watch rare and endangered animals that only come out in the dark, such as carnivorous ghost bats and bilbies (macrotis). Or head to the outdoor amphitheater to admire birds of prey in flight. Then peek into a waterhole in the aquarium to observe fish, turtles, burrowing frogs, and yabbies. During talks by the staff, you hear about the traditions of the Aboriginal Arrernte people, and their dreamtime stories, which illustrate connections between the people and the land. Facilities include a café, electric scooters for hire, gift shop and a picnic area.

Outstanding flora and fauna - not to be missed
Absolutely brilliant - best nature park ever
We were blown away by the beauty of the setting and the extraordinary array of bird life not only in the aviaries but also outside we really enjoyed strolling through the different landscapes and observing the abundant array of plants and bird life. The nocturnal house was such a special delight. Loved the bird show. Would recommend allocating at least 3 hours at this fantastic park.

Great experience of Central Aust Flora and Fauna
We had the afternoon to explore the park but you can spend a whole day if you took your time. There's plenty of signed local flora along the tracks and loads of wildlife for kids to see. The Nocturnal house is pretty cool and the bird show is a must. You can even have your photo taken with an Owl or Wedgetail Eagle for $10 at the end of the show.

A well presented park with activities - so much to see
May 2021
We arrived to see the 8.30am Dingo tour, we learnt a lot about not only dingoes but about Australian wildlife and history. The site represents the Arrernte peoples dream of the battle between the dingo and the Thylacine (Tasmanian Tiger) which made the Thylacine move to Tasmania. The park is divided into 3 main ecosystems, Desert River, Sand country and Woodland. There are regular discussions around the park all day. We then went to the bird feeding time at Desert Rivers, our guide gave a brief description of each of the birds and managed to get the Rufous Whistler calling. At 10am daily is the free flying birds show, this was great to see the great Australian raptors fly so close to you. There was some great commentary as well. At 11:45am Bird feeding time Desert Rivers
The most enjoyable and amazing section for us was the Nocturnal house. This was a large display of reptiles and marsupials, birds, it was great to see Bilby and Quoll. You can easily spend 4 hrs here, it’s a pity the café wasn’t open.

Must visit this place!
Apr 2021 • Solo
I had planned to visit this place for 3hours and ended up staying there for 6hours. I mostly walked around the park with the eloquent guide Rueben, who had a deep knowledge about Aboriginal history and culture. I was so drawn to his stories that the time flew. Also the bird show well exceeded my expectations. I didn’t know they could be so well trained!

Beyond expectations
Loved the Desert Park. The tours were informative and just the right length (15-20 minutes) and the nocturnal house was AMAZING. Huge enclosures and caring staff. The botany was very good too, so well maintained and weedless. Highly recommend the bird show, absolute highlight.

A great place to visit
Apr 2021
Visited early morning before it got a little 'warm'. We almost had the park to ourselves. The nocturnal house is very large, well set out and is possibly the best I've been in. Brilliant in fact. The other exhibits are great, especially being able to wander inside a few and seeing the different types of ecosystems. We like to 'potter around' on our own but a guided tour is possibly a good idea for some. Many many photos were taken !! Recommend. Absolutely.

It was a great way to spend the afternoon and lunch was tasty, too!
The exhibits are great, especially the aviaries, nocturnal house and the different types of ecosystems in the red centre of this country.
It was a good idea to take a private tour and our guide was knowledgable and helped us to go through the place, keep us to time and help us to see the important things such as the bird show.

Must visit sight - hosts are very friendly and knowledgeable
Jan 2021 • Couples
We visited the park early one morning before driving to Kings Canyon. The bird show was excellent as was all the nature exhibits. The highlight was a brief but insightful talk by 'Ruben' one of the Indigenous hosts. Ruben taught us more about Indigenous culture in 15 mins than my entire schooling life. He also personally took time out of his busy schedule to show us all sorts of edible bush tucker. All the other hosts were excellent and happy to answer questions. Im sure visitor numbers will pick up when Covid is over. A must visit site in Alice Springs.
