If you like plants and animals, the Desert Park is a must see in Alice Springs! The park hours are 07:30 - 18:00 daily. Admission is 20 AUD for adults, 10 AUD for a child (5-16 yrs), and 16 AUD for seniors. There are two family tickets: the Economy Family for one adult and up to two kids (35 AUD) and the Super Economy Family for two adult and up to four kids (55 AUD). Free audio guides with 31 guide points throughout the park (see the map) are available but I did not use one. I like to hear the natural sounds when I am at a nature park. Desert Park also has the Coolamon Cafe and a gift shop.
