Located in the main street of Greenock in the world famous Barossa Valley, Greenock’s Old Telegraph Station is a beautifully restored cottage offering self-catered bed and breakfast accommodation.
The building was once one of the original telegraph stations linking Adelaide and Angaston operating from 1866 at a time when travellers stopped over in the area on their way to the Murray River.
Mr Louis Iverson was the telegraph officer and operated the telegraphic equipment in a small office in his home (this cottage) until 1880, when the postal and telegraphic offices were combined and served from the new Post Office building.
With its peaceful location in the quaint village of Greenock, the Old Telegraph Station now offers guests a relaxing environment with all the conveniences of modern living whilst retaining its old historical charm.
