Tour the sights of 'The Alice' including The School of the Air. We learn how children who cannot access schools are educated by radio and may have the opportunity to listen to and observe actual lessons in progress on air.

Stop at the historic Telegraph Station, which marks the original site of the first European settlement in Alice Springs.

Visit the Royal Flying Doctors Service, where you will see how medical aid reaches those who live in the remote 'outback'.

We also make a stop at the Alice Springs Reptile Centre, where you can see up close and maybe touch some of the lizards and snakes that frequent Central Australia's semi-arid desert, such as the Perentie Lizard and the Thorny Devil.

The tour concludes with a panoramic view of the township of Alice Springs and the MacDonnell Ranges from the top of Anzac Hill.

* Choose to make your day complete with a morning visit to the Alice Springs Desert Park. The optional add-on can be included in your booking and will include transfers to and from the Desert Park and entry fees. Morning Optional begins at approximately 8am.
