Eating Out in Alice Springs, Australia

Despite the fact that Alice Springs is not a bit town, the choice of different food and establishments in which to dine is certainly impressive. If you’re looking for something cheap and cheerful head to Todd Mall which is lined with lots of eateries, most with outdoor seating, and a host of pubs too which serve an excellent selection of very cheap but very filling specialties.

Barbecues are popular too and can usually be found in one place or another every night of the week. There are really good fun and more often than not, end up becoming quite a party. For those of you who are partial to something a little more refined, however, you will find quality restaurants serving up cuisine from all over the world throughout Alice Springs. Seafood is really popular in the town and is flown in daily ensuring that it’s always fresh and of the best quality.

As well as the more common restaurants and cafes, Alice Springs also offers its visitors some pretty unique eating experiences. For example you can dine on the old Ghan Train a couple of evenings a week or head out into the bush to throw boomerangs while your meal is cooked outdoors using the most basic of facilities. Others ride a camel to dinner while more settle for a relaxed, romantic meal under the stars. Rest assured, however, that whatever you settle for, you won’t be disappointed.
