Discover one-of-a-kind Aboriginal Artwork

Alice Springs is one of the last destinations in the world where you can approach local artists relaxing on the grass selling their unique pieces of art. Wander down Todd Mall and you will discover art for sale. However, it is important to be respectful and make sure you ask before taking photos of the artists.
