Telegraph Station at Peake Hill
The telegraph station at Peake Hill is a great place to explore and offers the photographer so much to see, not only at sunset but dawn offers great light to photograph this locality. Luckily because of its remoteness it seems to have avoided the dumped rubbish and vandalism, which sadly can be found at some of the more accessible localities. This telegraph station is a bit unique as for its age it look in great condition.
Camping overnight is not allowed at this spot as it is on private land. I am not sure if it is part of the original set up of the station (probably not) but there appears to be a relic remanning of an old bed frame in one of old rooms. This is a great place to visit sadly camping is not allowed. I would recommend you make an early drive and have breakfast there, but remember cattle still graze on the farm land.
The Old Peake Telegraph Station lies some 17 hard kilometres off the Oodnadatta Track some 250+ km from Cooper Pedy in the Australian Outback.It was originally built in the 1880’s for the trans Australian Telegraph line which ran from Adelaide to Darwin. The Australian Overland Telegraph Line was a 3200 km telegraph line that connected Darwin with Port Augusta in South Australia.
