CDU Alice Springs stands proudly as a leader in First Nations education. The Akaltye Centre offers our First Nations students a culturally enriched and culturally safe learning environment at CDU.
The centre is supported by our First Nations Student Services team, who provide multi-layered support to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to achieve their educational goals.

Food and drinks
Our beauty salon offers a wide range of professional treatments from facials to waxing, massage to manicures, makeup to reflexology in a relaxing and welcoming environment. Our students are trained to a very high standard by a team of professionally qualified specialists and are on hand to make your experience everything you expect and more.
Desert Lantern restaurant
Taking its name from a beautiful species of plant found in the Central Australian region with large yellow flowers growing on hillsides and found at the base of rocks throughout the region, the Desert Lantern restaurant is more of a gourmet dining experience than a training restaurant.
Indulge in a three-course table d hôte menu featuring an arrangement of international cuisines, a seven-course degustation menu that includes wines to match or a three-course Gueridon (flambé) service which includes silver service. But save room because our students are also trained in the fine art of cocktail creation.
