  • About

Toddy’s staff members are experienced in accommodating groups of all sizes.

Alice Springs is located right in the middle of Australia in The Red Centre and is the best base for all trips to visit Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta (The Olga's) and King's Canyon.

Toddy's Backpackers welcomes all types of groups - sports groups, school groups or just groups of friends wanting to visit the area. 

Previous guests have included international and Australian groups of school & college students, sporting teams, clubs and professional organisations.

Depending on the size of the group, and subject to availability, we can offer a free Budget or Motel room for the tour driver/guide.
