We spent the day checking out the MacDonnell Ranges and Simpsons Gap amongst other naturally awe-inspiring things before heading into town to see what Alice Springs was all about. To put it simply – there’s nothing in Alice Springs as the highlight of that particular afternoon was the McDonald’s. Sad but true folks!
After experiencing Alice Springs first hand, I totally understand the warnings I received prior to the trip. Here was a town that left you feeling unsafe due to the fact that the locals are not overly welcoming and slightly crazy and not in a good way. In my opinion, if this is a place that could be avoided during your travels in Australia then I would highly recommend it.
