Anzac Hill Memorial lookout
Alice Springs, a town in the centre of the Australian Outback, is home to the notable monument Anzac Hill Memorial lookout. Panoramic views of the town and the neighbouring MacDonnell Mountains are available from the overlook, perched on a hill.
To honour the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) men who fought and lost their lives in World War I, the Anzac Hill Memorial lookout was built. Because of the hill's advantageous location above the town, where it would be perfect for both an adventurer and a memorial, it was chosen as the location for the monument.
The memorial's lookout was built in 1934 and formally inaugurated in 1935. The monument, which resembles an obelisk and is made of local sandstone, is tall and 10 metres (33 feet). Plaques honouring ANZAC service members who died in World War I and those who fought in previous battles are included at the memorial.

The lookout is easily reached by ascending a few stairs, and the top of the hill is home to numerous picnic tables and seats, making it an excellent place for a picnic or a rest break.
