Tennant Creek to Alice Springs
See the wonders of the Australian outback when you travel from Alice Springs to Tennant Creek on a luxurious Greyhound bus!
Departing from Tennant Creek, the hub of the sprawling Barkly Tableland, the bus trip down the Stuart Highway to Alice Springs will give you a chance to see some of Australia’s most memorable sights.
Wauchope, the first stop on your journey, is the gateway to the Devils Marbles Conservation Reserve. An indelible image of the Australian outback, the Devils Marbles are a series of giant boulders that appear to glow red in the light of the morning and evening sun. Not just a popular tourist attraction, this is also one of the oldest religious sites in the world, of great spiritual significance to the traditional owners of the land for over 40,000 years.
On your bus trip from Tennant Creek to Alice Springs, you’ll also pass through quirky Wycliffe Well, claimed by the locals to be the ‘UFO capital of Australia’. You can indulge your inner Mulder and Scully as you browse the kitschy alien paraphernalia on display, and add your own ‘UFO experience’ to the guest book.
Finally, you’ll arrive in Alice Springs, where you can get up close and personal with the plants, birds, animals and people of Australia’s arid regions at the Alice Springs Desert Park, and see the famous red quartzite peaks and gorges of the West MacDonnell Ranges.
