Alice Springs Telegraph Station Historical Reserve offers a glimpse of the town’s European beginnings. Established in 1872, the telegraph station relayed messages between Darwin and Adelaide for 60 year. The restored yard houses telegraph equipment from the 19th century, wagons, and a blacksmith shop. Walk and bike on trails in the reserve. While a number of short walking trails traverse the hill country, a popular one is the Trig Hill and Cemetery Loop, which returns via the original station cemetery. The shaded lawns make a popular venue for picnics. Plan a trip to Alice Springs easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • The day was extremely hot. The guide gave informative commentary on each of the displays and told of the development of the places the telegraph and the water. His knowledge of the facility and the original owners was outstanding. This is an excellently presented lesson in a valuable area of Australian history.
  • This is a very iconic place and a must-see when in Alice Springs. You learn a lot about the history of the telegraph in Australia and also about the station's use after the telegraph was shut down. The exhibition is a bit worn and old, and I would prefer it to be a bit more up to date and maby more interactive. The sandwiches in the cafe were delicious.
