Living Alice Springs


Alice Springs Town Council is the local government authority for the Alice Spring municipality, located in the Northern Territory, Australia.  The municipality covers an area of 320 sq kms and its population is estimated at 27,000.

If you've just moved to Alice Springs, or you're thinking about moving to the Red Centre, it can be daunting trying to obtain information that locals just assume everyone already knows. For example, if you're looking to rent a house and the real estate agent talks about 'swampies', you may wonder if you might require an interpreter.

On this page is information about living in an arid zone – from housing and childcare to public transport - and a full list of community organisations in our community directory.
