Bond Springs Outback Retreat, Alice Springs

At the heart of the legendary Australian outback is desert country of stark beauty that is simply known as the Red Centre. Nestled just 20 minutes from Alice Springs in the majestic MacDonnell Ranges is Bond Springs Outback Retreat. Bond Springs Outback Retreat offers two charming and elegant self contained cottages. Relax and unwind, sip a glass of wine on your verandah and watch the sunset.

Hosts Laura Hunter and Ben Heaslip invite a small number of guests to experience the Australian outback. There is much to explore on this Australian cattle station, and attractions such as the Alice Springs Desert Park and the West MacDonnell Ranges are close by.
