Alice Springs is one of Australia's most iconic outback towns so instead of waiting for our next flight to depart from Alice Springs airport, we decided to jump in a taxi and see the local sights. We had a fantastic real true-blue local character who was only too happy to keep the meter running for over an hour. Our tour started at the ANZAC Memorial overlooking the town, then we drove through the dry river bed of the famous Todd River (home to the annual Beer-Can Regatta), visited the expensive homes of local rich miners, checked out a local Aboriginal community and popped into the local Alice Plaza. There really isn't much else to do in Alice Springs and it is most peoples caravanserai on their journey to somewhere else. As it is one of the most remote towns in Australia (if not planet earth), its well worth a quick visit.
