Alice Springs Juvenile Holding Centre is a medium to high maximum security prison in Alice Springs, Northern Territory, Australia. It was designed for use as a short-term holding and remand centre for up to four days and can hold up to ten juveniles of either sex. Longer remand periods or sentences are moved to Don Dale Juvenile Detention Centre in Darwin.
