ALICE SPRINGS OLD TELEGRAPH STATION HISTORIC RESERVE

This is 3 km north of the CBD, see Parks and Wildlife site. Either follow the path that leads north along the west bank of the Todd from Wills Terrace or drive north on the Stuart Highway and look for the sign on the right about 2.2km past the Wills Terrace traffic lights. Around the picnic ground there are plenty of the common bolder birds that have learnt to live by scavenging, including Yellow-throated Miner, Pied Butcherbird, Grey-crowned Babbler. There are generally Weebills in the River Red Gums.

The Bradshaw and Stuart Tracks are good for finding shrubland bird species. In spring birds of prey may be found breeding in the gums along the River Walk.

Black-footed Rock Wallabies are often seen on the ridge immediately southwest of the junction of the Bradshaw and River Walks.
