  • Worth it for the wallabies


    We stayed at Heavitree Gap in March 2008. We had booked earlier on a discount website, and paid about $89 per night.
    At first the room was a bit of a disappointment - very tired and fairly battered. The bathroom was dated and the whole room was about five years overdue for refurbishment. We were on the first floor and had a balcony, but all the balconies were accessible from each other. We didn't mind the constant visits by a toddler from the other end of the building, but that might not appeal to everyone!
    However, at dusk, Heavitree Lodge's true attraction arrived. The hillside outside our room became the setting for a fascinating wallaby soap opera which continued until late each night. Kangaroos and a dingo also made cameo appearances. Watching the wallabies "made" our holiday.
    An absolutely wonderful experience.

    Unique Quality: Go there to meet the wallabies.

    Beware of the birds!


    Got here after another couple of outback nights, they do have a backpackers and hotel rooms, but the cheapest option was to camp, guess what we did?
    Slightly out of the centre, AU$18 for a campsite and a campervan, good showers and did some clothes wasking, but saw signs up saying be sure to remove your clothes at the end of the day (from the lines), well we went to the pub and forgot all that that.
    The resort has a pub attached and there was a live band on so we went to see them and it was the funniest thing I'd seen in a long time, fantastic. They playes bluesy/country music, some their own, some covers but inbetween they compared and has us in stiches, we ended up drinking with them after the show. The worst thing is I didn't get their names.
    Anyway, woke up after a very cold nights sleep (this was the end of May), and my travelling buddy told me to go and have a look at the washing line. Hmm, it was horrible the birds had used the area as a toilet, hat's why we were warned to remove out clothes. So we had to put them through the wash again and pay for driers.

    Unique Quality: They also have nightly visits to see and feed the Rock Wallibies at the foot of the hills in the resort.

    Good accomodation but away from the city centre


    Nice place, comfortable rooms (and clean!), A/C, at the southern entrance of Alice Springs, exactly where the gap is. And in the evening on the rocks you can see wallabies jumping, and you can feed them.

    Unique Quality: Quiet atmoshpere, swimming pool, BBQ, wallabies feeding

    Directions: About 10 km South of the city centre, following the road to Adelaide.
