The Alice Springs Telegraph Station Historical Reserve marks the original site of the first European settlement in Alice Springs. Established in 1872 to relay messages between Darwin and Adelaide, it is the best preserved of the 12 stations along the Overland Telegraph Line.

Open: The Reserve is accessible all year round. The cooler months (April to October) are the most pleasant to visit in. The Reserve is open between 8am and 9pm all year round, and the Historical Precinct is open between 8am and 5pm every day except Christmas.

Location:By vehicle, the Reserve is around 4km north of Alice Springs along the Stuart Highway. Alternatively there is a walking and cycling track into the Reserve via Schwartz Crescent and another along the west bank of the Todd River.
