Travel Tips for Pine Creek
The Old Bakery
Built originally at Mt Diamond around 1908 as a butchers shop by Mr Ah Toy, it was moved to Pine Creek and re-erected in its current location in 1915. The oven was built in 1922 using a bed of mortar and last saw service as a field bakery during World War 2. The Old Bakery is still owned by the Ah Toy Family.
Pine Creek - Last Remaining Gold Town of the North
"Gateway to Kakadu and Beyond"
The only remaining original mining town remaining from the 1870's Gold Boom, Pine Creek is a nice spot to spend a day before heading north or further south.
When in 1871 Gold was discovered in the area, Pine Creek was established and with the construction of the Overland Telegraph Line and Palmerston to Pine Creek Railway was well and truely established on the map.
Situated at the junction of the Stuart and Kakadu Highways and less than 3 hours drive from Darwin, Jabiru and Katherine. An ideal base for local gold exploration, sightseeing, bushwalking etc
a few k's south of Pine creek along the Stuart Highway turn off along the Umbrawarra Gorge Road and a few k's further along a right turn to Copperfield Dam. Note that from Umbrawarra Gorge Road the track is dirt, ok for cars though.
Copperfield Dam provides the water supply for Pine Creek.
A deserted camping ground near the dam is very ordinary, with sites consisting of long grass and rocks on the side of a hill. Down near the water, however, a small landscaped area with flat, manicured lawns, a sandy beach and a few picnic tables looked much more inviting. It would make the perfect spot for an overnight camp.
