Battery Hill is located on Peko Road1.5 Km east of the Tennant Creek town centre . Our Centre overlooks the town, the surrounding countryside and is the site of the No. 3 Government Gold Stamp Battery, where it all started with the 1930's outback gold rush. Our underground Mine and Stamp Battery are currently not available - but we hope to resume soon.
