Alice Springs School Of The Air
The Alice Springs School of the Air Visitor Centre is a
multi-award winning interpretive centre offering visitors
a virtual journey in “The World’s Largest Classroom”.
Established in 1951 to provide a much needed education
resource to children living in remote Central Australia,
the Alice Springs School of the Air is a distinctive and first
of its kind educational facility in the world. The school
provides daily lessons to children aged between 4 and 14
years, living in remote locations such as cattle stations,
roadhouses, Aboriginal communities and national parks.
Our unique visitor experience includes a short film and a guided
presentation providing a narrative about the distinctive history
of the school and how it operates. Visitors can view ‘live’ or
recorded lessons (outside of school hours) while our tour
guides deliver a full interpretation of how this is possible for
students living in isolated areas to participate in school classes.
