Lonely Planet review

At the foot of the Ranges and dotted with eucalypts and bounding rock wallabies, Heavitree makes a shady place to pitch or park. Alternatively, there are rooms: four-bed dorms, and lodge and very basic kitchenette rooms that sleep six. The lodge offers a free shuttle into the town centre, which is about 4km away. The neighbouring tavern has live country music most nights of the week.

Our independent authors have visited Heavitree Gap Outback Lodge and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Alice Springs.
