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 history of the site is interesting. Walking through the various buildings added insights into life back then when the station was being built and in operation.

  • Enjoyed our visit here. Lots of history to read and see. Beautifully presented grounds with historical buildings. Reasonable entry fee around $16 for adults. The is a shop with souvenirs, drinks and food. Really friendly helpful staff. Also worth and short walk to the cemetery.
  • This is one of my favourite places of Alice springs. The park that surrounds the buildings is beautiful. You can picnic, have a bbq, go for a walk, learn the history, connect with nature etc. My three year old loved coming here to run and play in the river.
