The Arrernte people are a group of people that traditionally live in the Arrernte lands of Central Australia. Some Arrernte people live in other areas a distance from their homeland, and may even live in Sydneymarker, Melbournemarker or overseas.

The groups of people are the ones below.:
  • Central Arrernte refers to people from the township of Alice Springsmarker only.
  • Eastern Arrernte refers to people from the Arrernte lands east of Alice Springs.
  • Western Arrernte refers to people from the Arrernte lands west of Alice Springs.
  • Arrernte refers to all groups combined, or alternatively to the people from the few Arrernte lands north of Alice Springs.


Throughout Alice Springs, tourists can learn about the Arrernte way of life, with guides and storytellers speaking of the life in a variety of different ways. Tours are run regularly to Hermannsburgmarker (Western Arrernte) and Wallace Rock Hole (Eastern Arrernte) so as to learn more about the Arrernte way of life, from their artwork to their culture and language.
