Explore Tennant Creek and the Barkly region, your ideal place to stop, relax and enjoy the outback hospitality and some of the Territory’s most fascinating land formations. Well known as the site of Australia’s last gold rush, Tennant Creek still has evidence of this in the area with many sites to explore. With huge cattle stations, historic stock routes, the region captures the pioneering contributions from the past.
The Warumungu people are the custodians to the region and offer a rich, yet tough history of fighting for their land rights. Their artwork and stories can be explored at Nyinkka Nyunyu Art & Culture Centre, which uniquely hosts a sacred site of the ancestral Nyinkka, a spiky tailed lizard from the area.
100kms South is the famous Karlu Karlu/Devils Marbles. Thousands of gigantic granite boulders are scattered over a valley balanced one on top of the other and when struck by the rays of the setting sun, they are a photographer’s delight as they glow with such vibrancy. This Conservation Reserve has a bush camping area and visitors can wander around the site along a network of informal walking tracks.
So base yourself at one of the friendly well equipped Caravan Parks and meet the friendly locals that run and care for you comfort, each offering their own special options.
