Visited here with husband and 6yo child.
We purchased day entry only as the nocturnal tour wasn't held on the weekends.
We did however for $10 each buy an echidna encounter.

The park attendant gave us a map and explained where to head to and what times. So first stop was the free flight show.
After the show you could have a photo with an owl or eagle. Miss 6yo chose both and it was gorgeous.

Then we wandered until it was time to go to the echidna in the cinema. This meant to could sit down and have a close look whilst the little echidna walked around and explored.

The rest of the park was so well set out and the nocturnal house was amazing!

The Cafe is currently closed but they have a visiting food van between 11am and 2pm. I am not sure if it's the same each time but we had Japanese and it was lovely!

Bring the kids and expect to be here a good half day if not more.

A beautiful park with great staff and lots to see. The highlights include a dingo enclosure (make sure you listen to the guide presentation), a bird show with very talented birds (but could go for at least double the time length) and a very good nocturnal display. Was expecting a bit more of the Australian mammals like kangaroos and emu’s which was something I expatiate see quite a lot of. There were many bird aviaries, possibly too much of a focus on them. In the evenings there is a guided nocturnal walk that you must book in advance especially in peak season. That was very special as we saw bilbys, malas and echidnas.

Without question the highlight of any Alice Springs experience, the birds of prey presentation was truely special. The host gives an informative talk covering a number of the native birds to the region and on queue each bird appears from nowhere to demonstrate a number of flying skills or tricks unique to the specie. The back drop to the stage is also stunningly encompassed by mountains in the distance.
There is a clear visible passion from the park ranger hosts who are quick to add bonus additional facts to the show as a number of impromptu guest appearances happen throughout the presentation with the local birdlife either popping in for a drink at the watering hole or soaring high above patrolling the skies. The nocturnal displays are yet another highlight within the grounds which have so much more to offer.

Fantastic to read a visit to the Desert Park was a highlight of your time in Alice Springs. We do hope you left with new appreciation of the desert.

Highlights of the visit were the nocturnal exhibit, which complemented our touring experience in Central Oz. There were several aviaries which were well presented and allowed you to walk among the birds. The landscaped park itself is very good and in keeping with the region. We were, however, pretty disappointed with all other animals. There was one kangaroo, the emu was ‘at the vet’, the two dingos had been taken for a walk and then were invisible in their enclosure, if there at all. There’s a bird show but that’s on early or late in the day and our visit didn’t match up and none of the ranger presentations were on. It’s a reasonably expensive experience ($100 for our family) and we didn’t feel it was worth the cost of the time with so many other attractions in Alice. Perhaps this is the impact of staff shortages felt everywhere (the cafe was closed for example). I hope that’s the core reason because, if not, you’d need a good reason to go for the money and as good as the nocturnal exhibit is, that’s not reason enough.

When our driver dropped us here and said he'd be back in 4 hours, we wondered how we would fill in the time. Turns out it was easy! Knowledgable & friendly guide Reuben introduced us to dingoes and emus, and introduced us to some of the native birds. The bird show was spectacular, with the birds appearing on cue and showing off their behaviour. The nocturnal house is the best I've ever seen, a huge variety of animals and it's a huge space. There are well maintained paths taking you around the park, good toilets and a cafe (which was unfortunately closed as it was Sunday). We got to meet the dingoes while out on their walk, walked through the kangaroo park, and enjoyed the beautiful gardens, all in the shadow of the stunning MacDonnell Ranges.

This park is a must see in Alice Springs. There are lots of areas of see, outdoors and indoors, including the large nocturnal area made out to be night time. The bird Show was amazing and we got to many huge birds fly in and do their thing.

We did the tour as part of our travels on the Ghan. It was a great stop. There was informative and entertaining native staff. The bird display and feature was really cool. We had an unexpected visitor in the form of a wild wedge tailed eagle that sorta postponed the show until he eventually was chased away by some other smaller and more agile kites. The handler did a good job working the bird and the crowds.

The park was a trye joy to visit. It really felt like you were walking through the dessert with all its beautiful red and green colours! All the animals we saw had plenty of space in their cages and the nocturnal display was absolutely wonderful. I have never seen anything like it!
We also loved the bird demonstration - leant so much about some of the birds on show and holding the barn owl at the end was also special...
A must visit when in Alice Springs!

The Desert Park is an excellent attraction; our big mistake was leaving our visit till mid-afternoon. We did get to join a tour of the Nocturnal House (arriving maybe 10 mins after it started) and also got to see the Bird Show. Both were excellent, with the bird show being particularly entertaining. In the Nocturnal House we saw many Australian desert animals native including malas, stick rats, bilbies and golden bandicoots, as well as other mammals and reptiles. Performers in the bird show included a magpie, a barn owl, a curlew, a whistling kite, a kestrel and a buzzard. Probably the parts of the park I enjoyed most though were some of the walk-in aviaries for small birds, where there many beautiful birds of the Australian desert lands went about their daily tasks, clearly used to their human visitors. I could have easily stayed on for a few more hours.

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.
