Tennant Creek with a population of approximately 8000 is the only town (apart from Katherine) of any size between Darwin and Alice Springs. Situated 510 kilometers north of Alice Springs and 25 kilometers south of the only bitumen highway linking the Northern Territory to the East Coast.
Tennant Creek is steeped in Gold Mining history with additional discoveries of copper and a few mines of differing sizes and type still in operation today. The Tennant Creek region is rich in geographical features, none more so than the Devils Marbles 105 kilometers to the south. This collection of fascinating usually symmetrical boulders is situated conveniently beside the Stuart Highway. Wind and water erosion have created the marble-like structures most of which are precariously balanced upon one another as if placed there by the devil himself.
