People at Enterprise Pit Mine Lookout at Pine Creek

Pine Creek

Established in the late 1800s after a gold rush in the area, Pine Creek is located 90km north of Katherine.

The town is a treasure trove of heritage bush buildings and mining sites. Echoes of the gold rush days are still evident in the historic Pine Creek Settlement. Gold was discovered at Pine Creek in 1871 by construction workers on the Overland Telegraph Line. There is a small and informative museum and preserved railway station within the township. The township is small but offers a range of accommodation options, including caravan parks and cabins.

Many of the original buildings still stand, allowing travellers to soak up some of the old pioneering spirit. Step back in time by driving the Northern Goldfields Loop Heritage trail that takes you from Pine Creek to Adelaide River.
