The Alice Springs School of the Air Visitor Centre has welcomed visitors since 1996,
enabling people to gain an insight into remote education and discover what it’s like to live and go to school in Outback Australia

Who owns the Visitor Centre?

The Visitor Centre is owned by the School Council. Since 1996 the Visitor Centre has welcomed domestic and international visitors. The Visitor Centre showcases the history of our school and fundraises for the school. Alice Springs School of the Air is a government funded school, however the expense of providing education to our remote students is many times that of a traditional face-to-face school.

Every person who visits the School of the Air Visitor Centre or purchases an item from our shop, helps contribute to the success of our school. 

The Covid Survivor Fundraiser 


It is no secret that Covid-19 has crippled the travel and tourism industry severely. The Visitor Centre to the iconic Alice Springs School of the Air, the world’s first remote education facility, has not been immune to this setback. In an ironic twist, in a time when people across the globe have had to adopt our way of living and educating children, our business has been trying to keep its head above the red sand. 

We have used almost all our existing funds and are now in the position that we may not be able to survive the summer season, the traditionally low domestic tourism season in Alice Springs. We are very grateful if you have generously supported our school in the past, with all past donations going directly to the school to assist our students. 

What will your donation be used for?

This campaign, the Covid Survivor Fundraiser, is requesting donations to assist the Visitor Centre of the Alice Springs School of the Air to survive this very challenging tourism season.
