Community

Alice Springs Town Council is the local government authority for the Alice Spring municipality, Northern Territory, Australia.  The municipality of Alice Springs covers an area of 328 sq kms and has a population estimated at 28,605 (ABS 2012).

If you've just moved to Alice Springs or you're thinking about moving to the Red Centre, it can be daunting trying to find out things locals may take for granted.

If you're looking to rent a house, for example, and the Real Estate agent talks to you about swampies and shadecloth, you may find yourself wishing you had an interpreter.
