Navigating the vastness of Australia’s outback is a daunting task, even for the most experienced travelers. Eliminate the stress of car-hire and map-reading on a hassle-free trip to Ayers Rock (Uluru) and The Olgas (Kata Tjuta) from Alice Springs—an easy way for first-time visitors to see more desert sights in less time. Plus, unlike other conventional Ayers Rock tours, you’ll enjoy a sunset Aussie barbecue overlooking Uluru.

The staff here were helpful and very informative. The buildings are well maintained The information about each building allows you to step back in time, to the early days of European settlement.

The telegraph station was interesting to visit. It was clean and well laid out with a map to follow. The best part was coffee and a scrumptious fresh Vanilla Slice with crisp puff pastry and deliciously thick vanilla custard filling. This was a nice surprise and went well with a good coffee, too!

Telegraph station is a fascinating look at the history of the early settlement of Alice Springs.It was originally constructed in 1871.Its only 4km from the town centre so easily assessable.Set in lovely open grounds running along side a dry creek bed,with the most beautiful old gum trees.There is some nice walks to do here if you have the time.We spent a good few hours wandering around the lovingly restored old buildings.There is lots of interesting memorabilia including Morse code equipment and info on the construction of the overland telegraph line.Such an important part of our history.There is also a nice coffee shop and the staff were very helpful.This place is a must do when visiting Alice Springs.We really enjoyed our visit here.

Even though the Telegraph station was closed we were still able to walk on the paths surrounding it. We walked to the top of Trig hill via the cemetery walk. The views from the top were special as we watched kangaroos hopping around. We kept our eyes out for dingoes but didn’t see any. We walked to this spot from the caravan park which made it all the more rewarding. Lots of car parking spaces available. Another place well worth going to if passing through Alice Springs.
