Tennant Creek

Heart of gold 

Tennant Creek, known as the Territory’s ‘heart of gold’, gained renown in the 1930s as the centre of Australia’s last gold rush. Today, Tennant Creek, along with the surrounding Barkley region, is a friendly township located between Alice Springs and Darwin with a rich history of gold-mining, cattle farming and strong ties to Aboriginal culture. 

For adventure-lovers, Tennant Creek offers plenty of event ideas from outback cattle stations, fossicking for gold and thrilling four-wheel-drive tracks that run through iconic scenery, including the Davenport Range National Park.
