The naysayers have a point.
Alice Springs as a destination is no longer attractive for tourism because of the highly obvious social issues.
On the other hand Uluru as a destination does work because it has the dual attributes of natural beauty and a resort quarantined from the community.
Perhaps somewhere out of Alice in the Western Macs might be a better way to go?

@Evelyne Roullet: I didn’t realise the situation had changed so much at the Ayers Rock Resort and the resident community had become so well integrated. Last time I was there, non-tourists could go to the supermarket, service station and maybe be ripped-off for a 6 pack of beer at the Outback Pioneer. Being allowed to play pool in the bar area is a real sign of a progressive community. Sounds like it has become a veritable Shangri-la.

This is going to be an amazing project. Tourists will flock in from everywhere to see high end Aboriginal culture in the gallery and then get to experience the wonderfully dysfunctional reality out on the streets.

Alice Springs is not a tourist destination. It’s a smallville service centre with a poor reputation that sticks like Tanami mud.

Good one Charlie! A little leg work for a great reward. The walk in would be an enriching experience for those able and willing to undertake it. Some people would miss out – so be it.
