Things to see and do with a car rental in Tennant Creek
The fifth largest town in the Northern Territory, Tennant Creek is packed full of things to see and do. Located in the heart of the outback, it’s surrounded by lush vegetation and cattle stations, which are always worth seeing.
Visitors can enjoy a trip to the iconic Karlu Karlu/Devils Marbles Conservation Reserve, home to an impressive array of giant boulders and ancient rock formations. Alternatively, you can take your Thrifty car along to the Battery Hill Mining Centre. Overlooking the town, it’s the perfect spot to learn about Tennant Creek’s mining history.
The Davenport Ranges and Lake Mary Ann are also great places to enjoy a scenic picnic, while those who like to soak up the local culture can enjoy a visit to the Nyinkka Nyunyu Art and Culture Centre. You’ll see gorgeous artworks, explore the landscaped garden of native plants and bush tucker, and find out more about the local Indigenous population.
