Location
Tennant Creek is is the fifth largest town in the NT and is located on the Stuart Highway, just south of the intersection with the western terminus of the Barkly Highway. It is approximately 1,000 km south of Darwin and 500 km north of Alice Springs. The town is named after a nearby watercourse of the same name.

The Barkly Tableland runs east from Tennant Creek towards the Queensland border and is among the most important cattle grazing areas in the NT. Roughly the same size as the United Kingdom or New Zealand, the region consists largely of open grass plains and some of the world’s largest cattle stations. It runs as far south as Barrow Creek, north above Elliott and west into the Tanami Desert.
