What’s it like liv­ing in Ten­nant Creek?

Year-round blue skies, stun­ning land­scapes, and vibrant, diverse, and warm com­mu­ni­ties — that’s life in the North­ern Ter­ri­to­ry! Only a short flight from most Aus­tralian cities, Ten­nant Creek is not just a must-see des­ti­na­tion renowned for its indi­vid­ual iden­ti­ty and rich cul­tur­al her­itage but is a remark­able com­mu­ni­ty to set up home in! As a small region­al cen­tre, Ten­nant Creek does not have the facil­i­ties one would find in larg­er coun­try towns like Kather­ine or Alice Springs how­ev­er it does pro­vide for all the basics that most peo­ple require, and sev­er­al tourist attrac­tions with­in easy reach like the beau­ti­ful Lake Mary Ann.
