Hello every one, I'm heading over to Alice Springs in the latter part of August on a trip. Would like to know of a good caravan park to stay in for a couple of days. That is close to the shops and not to noisy, I'm only driving a cruiser ute with a canopy on the back. Would like any help in being pointed in the right direction.

The Stuart Caravan Park is the closest to the centre of town and supermarkets (about a 20/25 min walk). It is clean and quiet.
The others are driving distance to the shops apart from the small local shops.
If you don't know where you'e going any road will get you there!

Stay in the Stuart Caravan park on Larapinta drive. Its 10 min walk into town, 20-25 mins to Flynns grave and Araleun Cultural center is across the road, including the old Conellan Airline hanger...not to mention the graveyard behind that has Albert Namatjira buried in it. Its a big park and popular...

There are a bunch down in Palm Circuit, not close to shops though my choice would be Heavitree Lodge...locals hang around outside but its VERY safe..

With anything in this town just dont leave valuables in view when parking your car in town..

Ditto for Heavytree. Generous Seniors discount. Good, discounted, bistro with very strict security. Car wash, clean ammenities, quite reasonably sized sites. Heavytree Gap is quite scenic in itself. Have stayed there numerous times.

And you get to feed the rock wallabies on sunset. Heavitree has Sunday roasts, $10...Entertainment there also, have Rex the reptile guy doing his snake display on Sunday evenings :-) hey I even bumped into Pauline Hanson one Sunday night and we had a chat...

Sandman,

Thanks also for the thumbs up on the Stuart Caravan park. Sounds good to be able to walk to a few of the sites in town.

Hi Ray
We stayed at G"DAY MATE caravan park back in April and was great. Went to the rock for a few days and come back to the Big4 to try it and not worth the extra money, very dissapointed.

As said, the Stuart CP http://www.stuartcaravanpark.com.au/ is the only one in walking distance of the CBD and shops. Most of them are a few kilometres south of the town and one is in the north side. Two older ones are well out of town which suits travellers like us who like to enjoy a quiet and scenic environment.

Check out Badger's

Alice Springs is as famous for the personality of its locals and contemporary and traditional art as the natural wonders, including the stunning Larapinta Trail and the MacDonnell Ranges, which surround it.
Take the West macDonnell Ranges for example, you can arrive there with a easy drive from Alice Springs. Even a day trip or overnight stay can leave you an impressive experience there.

Hi Daisy G.
Thanks for the info on the surrounding area of Alice. I'm going to have a look around town for a day or two and if nothing is of interest I might head of to the MacDonnells for a look. I've got no set time at each place I visit, but have to be back at home five weeks after I leave.
