The climate of Alice Springs (Australia)
Alice Springs is the second largest city in the state of Central-Australia and is located between the Macdonnell mountains. When the river Todd isnít dry bedded it flows through the city. Because of itís location in central Australia it is not easy to reach Alice Springs. The easiest way is by airplane, but there are more fun ways like the famous Ghan train. This train takes 18 hours to get from Adelaide to Alice Springs. In 2004 the tracks have been made longer. The train now reaches Darwin and makes another stop in Katherine. This trip will take about 43 hours. The Larapinta trail is one of the most impressive hikes in Australia and is over 200 kilometers.
Alice Springs has a desert climate which means it will be either warm, very warm or hot. During the summer months you might want to avoid traveling here. Keep in mind that seasons are the opposite of ours. Summer Alice Springs lasts from November till March. Temperatures will rise above 30 degrees Celsius every day and often peak over 40 degrees Celsius. During the months of June and July it will be much colder. Precipitation is hard to predict but when it starts to rain it often will last.
