About this site: The station was established in 1877 as one of the residential stations of the new Overland Telegraph Line. In 1896, the original timber buildings were replaced by new, larger stone buildings to the standard design of George Temple Poole. Unused since 1917, only the stone walls remain, an evocative testament to the 19th century communication breakthrough. The station has seasonal access by 4WD only.
