Desert Park Discovery Center - Alice Springs
Get your walking shoes on.....
You need your walking shoes on as there's a lot of walking through beautiful natural bush land.
The path leads you around to different habitats unique to the Northern Territory including dessert rivers, ranges and gorges, sand country and woodlands along with information about how Aboriginal people lived off the land. I found that the most interesting realising just how intimately Aboriginal people knew the land and survived for centuries in such a dry climate.

We spent about 4 hours at the park but could have spent a whole day if we had only taken the older kids. The little ones struggled to keep up as it involved lots of walking. The paths are pram friendly which I wish I had known beforehand. It's also important to note that it is easy to lose children if they wander off and take the wrong path - which we found out the hard way!
It was a great afternoon and so peaceful and relaxing walking through natural bushland. The kids learnt a lot and thoroughly enjoyed their time at Desert Park.
So, if you are in the Northern Territory or planning a trip to Alice Springs as a homeschooling family then I would definitely recommend Desert Park!
