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 and culture and enjoying the vast array of outdoor activities. The Barkly region is the outback Australian landscape you've always imagined: endless blue skies, vast desert horizons, and that electrifying sense that an adventure could be just around the corner. This part of Australia will show you just how enormous this beautiful country really is: the Barkly region alone is 323,514 square kilometres, which makes it bigger than Italy, the United Kingdom or New Zealand!
