Find out how early Territorians lived, worked, travelled and obtained supplies at the Old Timers Traeger Museum.



Located in Alice Springs, the museum houses an extensive collection of photographs and paraphernalia from the early days of white settlement in Central Australia. Wander through the displays that describe early white exploration and the opening up of the region after completion of the Overland Telegraph in the late 1800s through to the present day. As well as gemstones, fossils, and Aboriginal artefacts, there is fascinating information and objects from the Overland Telegraph, about pastoralists, mining and pioneers.

The museum is situated in the grounds of the Old Timers Village and is run on a voluntary basis by the residents. The museum was created by John Blakeman, who began collecting items connected with the people of Central Australia. It opened in 1966 and was named after inventor of the pedal radio, Alfred Traeger. Since then the collection has continued to grow with donations of items from the community.
