Tennant Creek Tourism: Best of Tennant Creek

Along the Red Centre’s only north-south route, Tennant Creek is well worth a stop
The perfect pitstop if you’re driving along the historic Explorer’s Way, Tennant Creek puts you in a quandary: head south toward Alice Springs and Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park or north toward Darwin and Kakadu National Park? There’s plenty to see in the area as well, from the interesting Nyinkka Nyunyu Art and Culture Centre to the mysterious granite boulders at the Pebbles to the quiet beauty of remote Davenport Ranges National Park. Tennant Creek is the heart of the Barkly region, home to blue skies, red deserts, and Outback pubs filled with local characters.
