Book Direct with the Owner at The Residency with Attractions in Alice Springs, for all your Attraction and travel needs.
While in Alice Springs, visit The Residency historic building to learn more about the power and independence that Central Australia had from the rest of the Territory briefly. Since its construction in 1928, The Residency has been a symbol of the brief legislative independence that Central Australia once had from the Northern Territory. Originally the residence of the Government Representative, the building is an example of a design adapted to the arid environment. Its concrete floors were laid directly onto the earth, and a breezeway extended through the centre of the house. Visitors can explore this once gracious home, which was the social, administrative and vice-regal hub of the early township of Alice Springs. The Residence has hosted official guests and royalty including Queen Elizabeth II, many of whom have had a significant impact on Northern Territory history. The building is now used to display artworks and items of natural science and local history from the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory. Located on the corner of Parsons and Hartley Streets, Alice Springs, The Residency is closed for the months of December, January and February each year and entry is by donation.
