Tennant Creek and Surrounds

Destination Name: Tennant Creek Area

Tennant Creek township is the Northern Territory’s ‘heart of gold’ and its surrounding areas are characterised by empty plains and vast skies. With a population of 4,000, Tennant Creek township is the main service centre for the area extending some 507 kilometres south to Alice Springs.

Stop in at any of the several character filled (some truly eccentric) road stops along the Stuart Highway (Explorer’s Way) for an insight into a unique lifestyle shaped by isolation. Ti Tree is famous for its surprising agricultural industry, Wycliffe Well has reported Unidentified Flying Objects visits and visitors to Barrow Creek invariably make their way to the historically significant Overland Telegraph Station.

Spend a couple of star filled nights in the Tennant Creek Area for a truly unique Territory experience.
