U-Turn Round – Alice Springs, Australia
The unit is part of a larger visitor point that invites pedestrians to select and listen to 8 different messages. Unlike most visitor centres, this instalment comes without any closing times; providing verbal help to the public at any time.
Messages provide visitors with helpful information on the town of Alice Springs, including ongoing events, the weather, rules on entry permits, travel information and other general information and visitor services. The installation is of great benefit to visitors who are in need of quick and easy access to information.
The red styling is in keeping with the local tourism schemes ‘Red Centre NT’ branding which allows it to stand out as a point of interest to those embarking on a Red Centre adventure. Whilst the inclusion of a unique wind-up audio device ensures high levels of interaction when compared to other more standard information points.
