TL;DR anyone have any experience/advice holidaying in Alice Springs with young children?
- Getting around without a hire car (I've read you can take them in taxis without child seats in NT)
- Safety walking around at night
- Staying at Diplomat Motel (wife is reluctantly agreeing due to price and central location to shops compared to the more expensive resorts) given we will probably only be able to afford fast food at this stage…the touristy stuff is very pricey!)
Wife saw an ad about the light festival in Alice Springs, recently, then yesterday there was a 4 hour Friday Frenzy sale and she impulse bought one way tickets from Uluru (to Sydney) …which is actually 5 hours away.
Now we need to organise everything else and we have no idea where to start, none of our friends have been, so just having to trawl through online reviews…
Any tips or tricks would be appreciated.
