The Alice Springs Desert Park recently had an open evening. It has been an embarrassingly long time since I went to the Desert Park. Like over ten years! Turns out that a lot has changed in 10 years. There is now an aquarium, a desert waterlife exhibit, a dingo enclosure and many more fun things for kids.

The Desert Park presents an number of different desert ecosystems and contributes to the conservation of desert flora and fauna. The nocturnal house is still my favourite. You can see all sorts of desert animals that only come out at night like the brush-tailed phascogale. Lulu loved the aquarium - yes there are desert fish!

Here are a few photos from our visit & if you are ever in Alice Springs, put the Desert Park at the top of your to do list!
