Wadlata Outback Centre
Located at 41 Flinders Terrace the Wadlata Visitor Information Centre (which includes the Wadlata Tunnel of Time) is an outstanding, award winning information centre. It provides extensive information and maps so the traveller can plan their trip into the Outback. It provides information about the animals which roamed the area thousands of years ago, about the Aborigines who moved through the area, about the early European explorers and the stockmen, pastoralists and miners who opened up the Outback. It looks at the great challenge of transport and communication in the desert and alerts the traveller to the unique set of forces which created modern day Central Australia. It is open Monday - Friday 9.00 am - 5.30 pm, Saturday and Sunday 10.00 am - 4.00 pm.

Built in 1864 by the first British settler in the town, Alexander Tassie, this house was used by a succession of local doctors from 1917 to 2009.
This hotel was the fourth built by Alexander Mackay. Completed in 1878 it was, at the time, reputed to be the largest hotel in South Australia. The town was booming at the time and between 1878-1883 a total of twelve hotels were built.
Constructed in 1881 by the Bank of South Australia at a cost of £4,500 it remained a bank until 1891 when it became a boarding house for employees of the Commonwealth Railways. Today it houses offices for public servants.
