Description

Telegraph Point is a small village on the North Coast of New South Wales, Australia. It is located on the Pacific Highway north of Port Macquarie, and on the North Coast railway line. The village spans both sides of the Wilson River. # History The Traditional Owners of country throughout the Telegraph Point and Rollands Plains region are the Ngaku people (north of the Wilson River along the coast and inland to Kemps Pinnacle in the Willi Willi National Park), and the Ngambaa peoples (south of the Upper Wilson River, inland through Bril Bril towards the Manning). The first European land grants in the Telegraph Point area were issued in the region then-known as ‘Prospect’ in 1832. The name derives from the telegraph line which crossed the river in 1869. The river played an important role in the logging of the surrounding forests and there are the remains of several old wharves to be seen, the best-preserved of which is on the south bank beside the traffic bridge in Log Wharf Reserve. A railway station was located in the town between 1917 and 1983. # Weather # Things to do
