This was an interesting tour. The guide was Excellent providing interesting commentary along the way. All of it was interesting. At the Air school it was great to see the air classrooms and how lessons are relayed to students.

Our guide Tash took us to the RFDS, School of the Air, the original telegraph station and initial site which included Alice's Spring and ANZAC Hill. Certainly worth the trip and we found Tash to be very knowledgeable. The tour gave us an insight as to the importance of Alice Springs to the outback.

This tour of Alice Springs is a good way to occupy any spare time you might have in Alice Springs while stopping there on your way to Ayers Rock (Uluru). This tour provides a good overview of the history and culture of the Alice Springs area and the central outback and the ongoing development of Northern Australia up to the current day.
