Destinations in Tennant Creek & Barkly Region

Stop off in the real Outback on a trip from Darwin to Alice Springs. Discover the gold mining history, Aboriginal culture and rich desert landscapes.

Tennant Creek is a charming town with historic roots in the Overland Telegraph Line, the gold rush and long, dusty cattle routes. Drive through the Davenport Range National Park and visit permanent waterholes, teeming with native waterbirds. Experience the culture of local Warumungu people at the Nyinkka Nyunyu Cultural Centre before taking a trip out to the glowing Devils Marbles in the day’s last light.
