Hermannsburg links to the Hermannsburg in Germany not Australia!
have added in some information I feel is important about visiting aboriginal communities - just some of the rules. Also, a bit about staying safe. Alice is a safe place, but its worth reminding people to be safe as some travellers forget this when visiting areas outside of cities...

Hi, thanks for your impressive work on Alice Springs. The Get Out section is rather exhaustive. I would suggest to move it or parts of it to a higher level (Northern Territory or Red center). What do you think ?

Hey, I think that's me - not sure but I think I did most of the editing there. I do have a login but I was lazy and didn't sign in. Thank you for the compliment! I couldn't believe how small the Alice Springs page was considering how much there is to do out here! It *is* a small town, but we're not *that* small.
It is a lot on the "get out" section, but the location out here is so remote that there is no other practical base of operations for accessing these areas - Maybe they should also be in the NT page too? But there's no way to get to the gorges from Darwin without stopping in Alice. It's sort of a big cluster of trails and roads that start here in Alice and only go to these gaps and gorges, little day trips, unless you're packing out for a week or so to go four wheel driving. Do you live out here?
what about a section on crime and safety in this areA?
driving after dark
i have never seen a car rental agreement which prohibits driving after dark. i'll remove this section from the article, unless anyone has evidence to the contrary. --Inas 21:07, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Hi I'm Lex, in regards to all Northern Territory information I have added, you may notice that some of the text I am adding appears in another website eg travelnt.com, that is because I am the original author. --Lex 11:39, 19 September 2008 (EDT)
Good work you guys for editing this! It's a well-rounded articel! Keep smiling, Edmontonenthusiast 19:16, 3 November 2008 (EST).
Car Insurance Void on unpaved roads
It might be worth adding to the "By Car" section that most car rental companies won't provide insurance for a 2WD once you get onto an unpaved road. Since there's a lot of them round travelers might need to consider if they won't be better of with a 4WD (source).
