Wander through the grounds and buildings and use the special franking stamp to post a letter at the post office.

The Alice Springs Telegraph Station is the best preserved of the 12 stations along the Overland Telegraph Line, which was established in 1872 to relay messages between Darwin and Adelaide. The reserve marks the original site of the Alice Springs settlement, which took its name after the waterhole a short distance to the east of the station. The Station operated for 60 years, then served as a school for Aboriginal children. Located 4 kilometres north of Alice Springs, the reserve is accessible by two-wheel drive vehicle. There's a walking or cycling track into the reserve from the Stuart highway and the Todd River. Entry to the reserve is free but an entry fee applies to the historic precinct and includes a tour.

Located within the East MacDonnell Ranges, 90 kilometres east of Alice Springs, this important archaeological and heritage site also protects rare plants. Follow the 1.5 kilometre (one hour return) marked walking track into the gorge. Signs along the track interpret some of the approximately 6,000 individual stone engravings or petroglyphs.

N'Dhala Gorge Nature Park contains Eastern Arrernte men's sacred sites, including petroglyphs, art sites and shelter sites. The traditional owners call the area Ilwentje. The petroglyphs have been created using either a fine pecking or pounding technique, which are thought to have been used in two different periods. Access to the nature park is via the Ross Highway. Once you pass the Ross River Homestead the track becomes accessible to four-wheel drive vehicles only. Pitch a tent in the bush camping area, which has toilets and picnic tables (camping fees apply).

Rocky Bar Gap is a shady spot favoured by walkers of the Larapinta Trail. Located along Section 11 of the 223-kilometre Larapinta Trail, it is a good place to take a break or camp for the night.

The trail passes south through Rocky Bar Gap then heads west along the foot of Mt Sonder. At various points along the way you may see distinctive knobbly black rock, which is part of a fossil soil and the remains of an iron oxide capping formed on the land surface millions of year ago when the climate in this area was tropical. Camping is permitted, but there is no vehicle access to this site. Section 11 of the Larapinta Trail is graded as hard - a rough and narrow track with some steep and/or long climbs and descents, suitable for fit people with previous bushwalking experience.

John Flynn dreamed of a cathedral within Central Australia where people of all faiths could worship. After his death, his friends across Australia built one in his memory.

Take a self-guided tour, walking the sign of the Cross built into the Church's design, and learn about the many aspects of Flynn’s achievements in his life.
