Things to see and do with a rental car in Tennant Creek

Tennant Creek is one of the lesser visited towns in the NT when it comes to tourism but if you're lucky enough to be one of the travellers that gets to visit the area, you'll find plenty of things to see and do. Located in the heart of the outback, it's the NT's fifth largest town and home to beautifully lush surrounds and numerous cattle stations.

A drive to the iconic Karlu Karlu/Devils Marbles Conservation Reserve will have you in awe of the giant boulders and ancient rock formations. Continuing the Outback adventure, be sure to check out the Davenport Ranges and Lake Mary Ann where you can easily spend hours enjoying more of nature's beautiful scenery. Why not pack a picnic and plan a day trip out in your Thrifty car? 

Of course when you're in the NT, you can't forget the wonders of Indigeous art and culture. The Nyinkka Nyunyu Art and Culture Centre is a must visit. Here, you’ll be treated by stunning artworks and a landscaped garden of native plants and bush tucker where you can learn more about the local Indigenous population.
