Eucla is located approximately 13 kilometres west of the South Australian border. Established in 1877 as a manual repeater station for the Overland Telegraph. In the 1890's a rabbit plague passed through the area which caused large sand drifts that repeatedly covered and uncovered the telegraph station. Today, it is said, that the telegraph station ruins are haunted by a ghost.
