John Flynn dreamed of a cathedral within Central Australia where people of all faiths could worship. After his death, his friends across Australia built one in his memory. It was opened by the Prime Minister in 1956, and its design was a result of a national architectural competition incorporating passive cooling, local and national symbolism in its design. Take a self-guided tour, walking the sign of the Cross built into the Church's design, and learn about the many aspects of Flynn’s achievements in his life. Reflect for a moment on his life, and your own, in this peaceful sanctuary. John Flynn Memorial Church is a part of The Flynn Trail, a self-guided heritage tour in Alice Springs and surrounds.

The Explorer's Way bisects the Australian continent from Adelaide in the south to Darwin in the north. It covers over 3,000 kilometres and follows the corridor blazed in the 1860s by explorer John McDouall Stuart for the 'Overland Telegraph'. The township of Alice Springs is nestled among the MacDonnell Ranges. A detour to World Heritage-listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, five hours drive south west of Alice is a must. Following the Explorer's Way stop at historic outback pubs and quirky roadhouses. Marvel at the Karlu Karlu / Devils Marbles, where huge red spherical boulders balance precariously on one another. Another major stop is Tennant Creek, site of Australia's last gold rush in the 1920s and 30s. Mataranka has thermal springs and a fascinating pioneering history. Katherine, further up the road, is the gateway to the famous Katherine Gorge in Nitmiluk National Park and is where the Explorer's Way intersects with the Savannah Way tourism drive. Darwin is only 320 kilometres from Katherine, there are a number of detour routes. The Nature's Way tourism drive branches off at the historic gold mining town of Pine Creek to World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park and in the west Douglas-Daly and Litchfield National Park.

Yeperenye Emily and Jessie Gaps Nature Park are the first noticeable features of the East MacDonnell Ranges as you drive 10 kilometres out of Alice Springs. Pack a picnic, watch the local wildlife, or follow a short walking track into both gaps. At Emily Gap you can see a large rock painting depicting the caterpillar dreaming. The two small gaps in the Heavitree Range are important spiritual sites to the Eastern Arrernte Aboriginal people. Many places in the surrounding landscape are associated with the same caterpillar Dreamtime story, and form a 'Dreaming Trail'. Emily Gap is a significant sacred site where the caterpillar beings of Mparntwe (Alice Springs) originated. These caterpillars formed Emily Gap and many of the topographic features around Alice Springs, then radiated out to the edge of the Simpson Desert. The first European sighting of Emily and Jessie Gap was in 1871. It was thought that the names Emily and Jessie were chosen after the daughters of Sir Charles Todd, but this was found to be untrue. The basis on which the names are derived is unknown. The East MacDonnell Ranges Park is an easy 15-minute drive along the sealed Ross Highway.

The 46,000-hectare park protects the desert oasis Palm Valley, home to a diverse range of rare and unique plant species.

For experienced four-wheel drivers, the popular Finke drive route is an adventurous drive down the Finke River to Illamurta Springs Conservation Reserve and Watarrka National Park. The park and nearby areas are significant to the Western Arrernte Aboriginal people and there is also evidence of early European settlement. Follow one of the marked trails short distances to survey the area from lookouts, or to find out more about the mythology of the Western Arrernte Aboriginal culture. Pitch a tent in the campground - toilets, showers and gas barbecues are provided and fees apply.
