Arltunga was the site of hope, struggle and mateship for many fortune hunters who came here on foot to find gold.

Born out of a goldrush in 1887, Arltunga was officially Central Australia's first town and once supported up to 300 people.

At the visitor centre you will be introduced to Arltunga's colourful past and wild characters.

You can learn about gold mining in Arltunga and find out how gold used to be extracted.

Walks at the reserve take you through the Government Battery, Cyanide Works, Old Police Station, mines and homes.
