Getting Here

Airport Location

Alice Springs Airport is a modern, fully air-conditioned terminal located 15 kilometres to the south of the township of Alice Springs, the main entry point and heart of Central Australia.  Located between the East and West MacDonnell Ranges, Alice Springs is Australia's most famous outback town.  With a population of over 27,000, it offers capital-city facilities without losing touch with its pioneering heritage and Outback friendliness.

Most routes in Alice Springs and its surrounds have traffic indicator signs directing to the Airport. Follow these symbols for the most direct route to the airport.

Pick Up & Drop Off

Public car parking is strictly prohibited at the Terminal kerbside.  Visitors can be set down and passengers picked up in front of the Terminal building as long as the vehicle is NOT LEFT UNATTENDED and you are actively loading or unloading your vehicle.  Unattended vehicles will be issued with parking infringement notices, as will any vehicles found not abiding by the Traffic Regulations.  Alternatively, our Short Term Car Park is FREE for the first ten minutes for pick-up and drop-off.

How do I get my 10 minutes free?

If you’re staying a little longer, the Short Term Car Park provides 10 minutes FREE parking. Just collect a ticket when entering the car park and if you leave within 10 minutes, there will be no charge.
