Alice Springs is a melt­ing pot of cul­ture, art, his­to­ry, enter­tain­ment, and adven­ture. Mparn­twe is the Arrernte word for Alice Springs. The Arrernte peo­ple are the tra­di­tion­al cus­to­di­ans of Alice Springs and have a strong con­nec­tion with the land. Stun­ning land­scapes, the world’s old­est liv­ing cul­ture, and a unique pio­neer­ing his­to­ry cre­ate a diverse and exhil­a­rat­ing des­ti­na­tion to explore.

If this sounds like a role for you, we want to hear from you.
