The Waterhole is a restful community place where you may come and share a range of great facilities and enjoy the company of others from the wider community.

Artists come from both town and out bush to paint, with mainly traditional painting styles and themes, like gathering bush food, dreamings, etc. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to find a satisfying occupation at The Waterhole.

Since opening in late 2012, The Salvation Army’s The Waterhole community centre in Alice Springs has been working hard to ensure the centre lives up to its name: that it is a place of tranquillity, a place of meeting and a place of possibility.

On any one day between 50 and 80 people come into the centre to use the facilities, to get out of the heat (in summer) or the cold (in winter), to have a shower or wash clothes, to meet family members and friends, to have a cup of tea and something to eat, to paint, relax, watch a movie, play the guitar or catch up on sleep on the couch. At The Waterhole all are valued and contributing guests.
