Alice Springs: Araluen Cultural Precinct

Araluen Arts Centre

The Araluen Arts Centre is the hub of Alice Springs' performing and visual arts scene. 

Araluen Arts Centre was designed and built around the 300-year-old Corkwood Tree in the Sculpture Garden. This tree, another at the front of the building and Big Sister Hill, are also sacred for the local Arrernte people.

Country is central to the experience of Indigenous and non-Indigenous residents of Alice Springs and the centre was built to celebrate this connection.

To find out what's on, go to the Araluen Arts Centre website.  


Each year, the Araluen Arts Centre produces a theatre program that includes performances by national touring companies such as plays, dance, circus and cabaret. There are also a number of local productions from artists and schools.  

The theatre is also available to hire for corporate functions and conferences.


The galleries in the Araluen Art Centre feature a yearly program of exhibitions focusing on Aboriginal art from Central Australia and contemporary art by local and national artists.
