About Tennant Creek, NT
Tennant Creek is a township of about 3,500 people, located 500 km north of Alice Springs and 1,000 kilometres south of Darwin. It’s a place shaped by Aboriginal culture, gold mining and pastoralism. The surrounding area is called the Barkly Tablelands, a region roughly the size of the United Kingdom, and characterised by wide grassy plains, endless blue sky and massive cattle stations.
The traditional owners of the area surrounding Tennant Creek are the Warumungu people and their culture is very much alive and well, with Aboriginal people making up approximately 60% of the population, and over ten language groups represented in the town. Their stories are showcased in one of Australia's finest cultural centres, Nyinkka Nyunyu. Tennant Creek has developed from its rough, tough droving and gold mining days into a modern town with shops and a supermarket, accommodation, bars, clubs and restaurants, a major regional hospital, schools and banking facilities.
The recent expansion of the mining industry in the region has largely been on Aboriginal land, meaning that there are now exciting and challenging opportunities for training, employment and economic development. This includes opportunities for increased tourism in the recently established national parks in the region and the resurgence of cultural events such as the Desert Harmony Week each year.
