G'day and welcome to the famous 'Overlanders Steakhouse' here in Alice Springs in the 'heart of Australia'.
The movie 'A Town Like Alice', based on the book written by Neville
Shute and starring Virginia McKenna (of Born Free fame) is well known
to many from around the world.
Filmed in 1956, the movie immortalises
the town affectionately known as 'The Alice'.
Nestled amongst the stunningly beautiful MacDonnell Ranges, this
wonderful historic town is the home of many attractions including the
Royal Flying Doctor Service, the School of the Air and the world
renowned Desert Park. 'The Alice' is acknowledged also as the centre
for authentic Aboriginal art and culture, and features a wide variety
of specialised authentic galleries.
The 'Overlanders Steakhouse' features a framed 'playbill' or poster of
'A Town Like Alice' autographed by Virginia McKenna during her recent
visit to Australia.
'The Alice' and Central Australia has played host for other feature
films include 'The Overlanders', 'Jedda', 'Quigley', and telemovies
'The Last Frontier', and 'Naked Under Capricorn'.
