Heavitree Gap Hotel Reviews

First things first this lodge was FANTASTIC! We stayed here for 1 night in January 2012 and only wish we stayed here for our entire stay at Alisce Springs! The location was great for us -- not too far to drive to the airport which is what we were initially seeking and also not too far to city. Feed the Wallabies @ 1730 -- upon our arrival my husband checked us in and was told by reception that every day wild wallabies come down and you are able to feed them. Collect your feed from reception and feed the wild wallabies ... don't miss it as I found this really cool! We booked into a lodge room -- FANBLOODYTASTIC! The air conditioner was already on and we didn't walk into a sauna type room for a change. The bathroom facilities were more than adequate. The kitchen facilities were great. Having an actual microwave in your room means so much to a traveler. Having the utensils wrapped inside paper for protection was the best thing ever and its a shame that many other motels/lodges do not adopt this idea. Towels, soap, shampoo, and water pressure and an air conditioner that operated ... good on you Heavitree. We will return to this lodge in future.

This hostel is fantastic. You have towels, shampoo, conditioner, soap, milk and cold water, all supplied. It is one room with two bunks and a kitchen and bathroom. You have your own balcony with chairs. It is very clean and tidy cleaners come every day. Although it is out of town there is a shuttle service, but there are also local amenities on site. The backdrop is great and little wallabies bounce past your room at night. There is air-conditioning all day, too. I highly recommend it.


Great hostel--very clean and well kept! I stayed for 2 nights. They were right on the ball with my reservation, were expecting me when I arrived, and were prepared to help me. They had a great location just outside of town, and a very convenient shuttle service.



Situated at the Southern Entrance to Alice Springs, 5 minutes from the town centre, nestled amongst eucalypts at the base of the spectacular MacDonnell Ranges. Heavitree Gap Outback Lodge offers the ideal environment for a unique Central Australian experience.

Heavitree Gap Outback Lodge offers quality accommodation with cooking facilities along with powered caravan and camping sites under shady gum trees. Accommodation is well supported by our tavern/bistro, supermarket and the unforgettable Olde Alice Bar and Function Centre.

The Olde Alice regularly features a damper cooking display, live music and the 'Snake, Bake and Shake' show; a popular event where you will get to sing along to some 'Aussie' songs, taste Australian damper and kiss a real lizard.

Every evening 'Wild Black Footed Rock Wallabies' can be fed at the lodge - an absolute must - this unique activity is popular with guests of all ages.

Heavitree Gap Outback Lodge operates a free return downtown shuttle bus service from the Lodge 6 times daily.

An airport shuttle service is available at the cost of $8.00 one way or $15.00 return (children 0 - 14 years free of charge)
