Travel Tips for Tennant Creek

Key Locations in Outback History.

"Tenant Creek on the Stuart Highway."

Part of Australian history was made with the construction of The Overland Telegraph Line circa 1899.
Tennant Creek was a major depot along the way.

Not far south of Tennant Creek is the fascinating geological group of rocks nicknamed 'The Devil's Marbles'.
Not the Aboriginal name of course !

That is Karlu Karlu.

This pic is a 'grab' from my video camera 'on the fly'. Just a tiny section of the whole collection - done by nature's hand.
Later we drove in and through the area. A much better way to absorb the atmosphere.

"Tourist brochure info."

Just to prove the name !!
No Newsagency nearby - one up at Tennant Creek.

"Hard to keep awake driving this road."

The Stuart Highway runs up (or down) the middle of Australia.
From Port Augusta to Darwin.

Please visit my Barrow Creek page for the Joanne Lees story.

Tennant Creek

"A modest outback town"

Although a modest outback town, Tennant Creek is the Territory's most important settlement after Darwin, Alice Springs and Katherine.
Located 377 m above sea level and enjoying an annual rainfall of 470 mm, Tennant Creek is the most important township on the Barkly Tablelands. With a population of over 3 500, and located on the Stuart Highway 504 km north of Alice Springs and 978 km south of Darwin, Tennant Creek is one of the five major centres in the Northern Territory.
The first European to pass through Tennant Creek was the explorer John McDouall Stuart who in 1860, finding a creek in the desert, named it after his friend, the South Australian pastoralist and politician, Andrew Tennant (1835-1913).
