  • Alice Springs has evolved from a former telegraph station. For the Australians, this well 100Jahre old building are a "historic site". Occurs 9,50AUD (we came 20Minuten before closing and were kindly free pure allowed). You can see among others the actual station, the kitchen, the Batteriehaus, the forge. No idea if it actually the original buildings - they are very new look for. Interesting information board and a how to the Morse himself.

  • Our visit was part of an organised tour, and although our guide gave us a good insight, we felt that our visit there deserved more time.
  • Great place to stop and rest if you are traveling across the country.
