  STS61B-44-0011 Alice Springs, Northern Territory, Australia November 1985
Alice Springs, the small, light-colored area near the center of the image, is situated on the floodplains of the Todd and Charles Rivers (barely visible on this image). These rivers rarely contain any water due to the arid environment in this southern region of the Northern Territory. Alice Springs is located almost in the geographic center of Australia. Many low ridgelines and folded mountain structures of the MacDonnell Ranges provide a panorama of hills, gorges, and low mountains. An extensive interior drainage pattern is visible north of the Alice Springs area (upper left).
