About Tennant Creek
Tennant Creek is one of those out of way, dusty, gritty towns which epitomizes “outback”. The town grew up around the gold mining industry, and is now a mix of descendents of those original gritty miners, and the local aboriginal population. This is one of those places where survival was tough and ingenuity was key. Tennant Creek is a convenient place to stop over if you are travelling by car or bus from Adelaide to Darwin, or from Townsville to Darwin. It’s worth spending a day there, learning about the mining culture of the area as well as the unique aboriginal perspective as well.
