The day was extremely hot. The guide gave informative commentary on each of the displays and told of the development of the places the telegraph and the water. His knowledge of the facility and the original owners was outstanding. This is an excellently presented lesson in a valuable area of Australian history.
This is a very iconic place and a must-see when in Alice Springs. You learn a lot about the history of the telegraph in Australia and also about the station's use after the telegraph was shut down. The exhibition is a bit worn and old, and I would prefer it to be a bit more up to date and maby more interactive. The sandwiches in the cafe were delicious.
