The best time to visit the Red Centre is in autumn (April through June) and spring (September through October), to avoid the normal forty degrees Celsius at 9 a.m. during the summer.

You can reach Alice Springs by Greyhound bus, by car, or by plane, but these options are really expensive -– even though it's such a touristic place, a lot of backpackers don't visit because of this.
