There will be loads of free activities at the Waterfront these school holidays with fun for everyone!
There are many camping areas located throughout the Park, as well as picnic areas and bushwalking tracks. Some waterholes are safe to swim in. Some of the most spectacular scenery in the Northern Territory. This Park is spectacular at any time, though most 4WD tracks are closed during the wet season. Some swimming areas such as Wangi Falls, become unsafe after heavy rain and are closed for swimming but kiosk and picnic facilities remain open.
A must see for every visitor to the Alice! Take an easy walking trail through three desert habitats and discover Desert Rivers, Sand Country and the Woodland habitat, witness free-flying birds of prey in the nature theatre, see rare and endangered animals in the spectacular nocturnal house, hear the insights into the interlinking world of plants, animals and people from our local guides and enjoy a cinematic journey through four-and-a-half billion years of desert evolution during the 20 minute cinematic journey of “The Changing Heart”. When you leave the Desert Park you will go away with new stories, skills and some of the secrets of the desert.

The deep gorge carved through ancient sandstone by the Katherine River is the central attraction of the Park. Some of the many attractions at the Park are Fishing, Swimming, Camping, Walking Trails and much much more.
