Tennant ck and Barkly 1200x6285

Located 500 kilometres north of Alice Springs and 1000 kilometres south of Darwin, with Tennant Creek at its golden heart, is the Barkly. Its large cattle stations, fascinating wayside inns, historic stock routes, gold mining history, Aboriginal culture, interesting flora and fauna and the iconic Karlu Karlu/Devils Marbles make up this beautiful outback region of the Red Centre.

Spend a day or two in Tennant Creek exploring its rich history, culture and enjoy the vast array of outdoor activities. The Barkly region boats the iconic outback Australian landscape: endless blue skies, vast desert horizons, and that electrifying sense that an adventure could be just around the corner. The Barkly will remind you just how unique the Territory really is.
