If you have a spare minute when passing through Alice Springs, even if you don’t, you have to make sure you check out the Anzac Hill lookout at Alice Springs.
Providing stunning, uninterrupted 360-degree views of Alice Springs and its surrounds – it is the town’s most visited destination. Anzac Hill commemorates the soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice during the First World War and all conflicts since.
Given its prominence in the landscape, you could find it by eye from any part of town, but if you search for Anzac Hill Road on your phone or GPS you will find it.
Also, look out for the Hungry Jacks on the outskirts of town, and the entrance road is directly behind it.
You can get to the tp either via car on Anzac Hill Road or walk. There is a walking path on the city side of the hill you can access from the footpath, and it’s a steep, unsealed, but a quick walk of about 200m.
There are some steps built-in, but they aren’t in the best condition, so stay steady on your feet and tread carefully.
Anzac Hill Accessibility
It is open 24 hours a day and offers something different, depending on the time you get there. Watching the sunset behind the ranges is a real treat, and the night lights are something special if you can get there after dark.
There is no fee for entry, and it is accessible by all, thanks to the paved surfaces, and gentle gradients.
