Following Glen Helen Gorge there is an unsealed section through to Hermannsburg, the birthplace of famous indigenous artist Albert Namatjira, before doubling back some of the way to Watarrka National Park famous for the spectacular Kings Canyon. Your final destination is Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Travellers can return to Alice Springs via the sealed Lasseter and Stuart Highways. History in Alice Springs take a walk around the Alice Springs Telegraph Station, the buildings have been fully restored, and it incorporates an interpretive display of the Overland Telegraph Line, Stolen Generation through to the Bungalow period and World War II. From the centre of town walk the heritage trail, starting at Flynn Church, then going to Adelaide House, The Residency, ANZAC Hill, Old Stuart Town Goal, Old Hartley Street School, Stuart Memorial, Royal Flying Doctor Service and concluding at the National Pioneer Women's Hall of Fame. This is a great way to see the town of Alice and learn a little of history along the way.
