Newcastle Waters Townsite

Newcastle Waters is a large and historic cattle station located 777 km north of Alice Springs and 705 km south of Darwin.

Newcastle Waters is significant for its association with the cattle industry since 1883 and particularly since 1919 when the town was developed as a depot for the construction and maintenance of stock route watering facilities. The Townsite has been Heritage Listed due to the presence of a number of structures of historical significance, such as the church, school and hotel.

Power and Water has decommissioned a minor power station at Newcastle Waters, having commissioned a 22kV powerline from Elliot Power Station.
