Historic Telegraph Station: This is a popular and recommended attraction for people interested in the history of the outback. Alice Springs obtained its name from the waterhole at the Overland Telegraph Station established in 1872 to relay messages between Darwin and Adelaide. This historical reserve marks the original site of the first European settlement in Alice Springs.
Royal Flying Doctors Service: Royal Flying Doctors Service is the perfect way to develop an understanding of the lifestyles of people living in the outback and the hardships they face everyday.
School of the Air: The school is an important part of the history of Alice Springs. Opened in 1951, it has been broadcasting to children of isolated communities throughout a 1.3 million square kilometre 'classroom'. Interpretive displays demonstrate the important role it has in the Outback and on school days you can hear lessons being broadcast.
