Barrow Creek Telegraph Station Historical Reserve

The beautifully restored Barrow Creek Telegraph Station is located in Barrow Creek, set against the backdrop of the picturesque Forster ranges.

This historical reserve is one of 15 telegraph stations that formed the network from Port Augusta to Port Darwin and has considerable historical value. The stone buildings were originally constructed in 1872.

An information sheet on the self guided walk is available from the Parks and Wildlife website or the Barrow Creek Pub.
