While in Alice Springs, visit The Residency historic building to learn more about the power and independence that Central Australia had from the rest of the Territory briefly. Since its construction in 1928, The Residency has been a symbol of the brief legislative independence that Central Australia once had from the Northern Territory. Originally the residence of the Government Representative, the building is an example of a design adapted to the arid environment. Its concrete floors were laid directly onto the earth, and a breezeway extended through the centre of the house. Visitors can explore this once gracious home, which was the social, administrative and vice-regal hub of the early township of Alice Springs. The Residence has hosted official guests and royalty including Queen Elizabeth II, many of whom have had a significant impact on Northern Territory history. The building is now used to display artworks and items of natural science and local history from the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory. Located on the corner of Parsons and Hartley Streets, Alice Springs, The Residency is closed for the months of December, January and February each year and entry is by donation.

Ryan's Well Historical Reserve protects and preserves an important aspect of the nineteenth century push into the Northern Territory. Located 129 kilometres north of Alice Springs, the well was hand-dug in 1889 to supply water to travellers and stock along the Overland Telegraph Line. The well was named after Ned Ryan, a stonemason who became an expert at sinking wells. Make a stop along the Stuart Highway to read the detailed plaque beside the well, which describes the complex process of raising water and offers a glimpse into the early history of Central Australia. Within the reserve The Glen Maggie Homestead ruins reveal the way of life of pastoral settlers during the early 20th century. The Nicker family built the Glen Maggie sheep and cattle station near the well in 1914 and charged a small fee per head to draw water for travelling stock. By 1921 the homestead also served as a telegraph office and store. In 1932 it became well known as the last supply point for miners heading north-west to 'The Granites' gold rush. The building was finally abandoned in 1935 and the Telegraph Office was moved north to Aileron Station.

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.
