Arltunga was officially central Australia's first town, born out of a gold rush after alluvial gold was discovered in a dry creekbed in 1887. The Visitor Centre gives an introduction to the Reserve and mining era, through cultural and historical displays.There is a self-operated slide show which offers an insight to the past and informs visitors about the Reserve's attractions. You can also try panning for gold in the courtyard display.

Location:Located 110km east of Alice Springs, the Reserve can be easily reached in 2WD vehicles. After 70km of sealed road along the Ross Highway there is a formed gravel road which leads north east for 33km to Arltunga.
