    After Mount Isa, iconic with its mine and with the smokestack that rises like a tower in the wilderness, the landscape flattens out. Only Earth and shrubs and an amount of bugs that seem to come from a science fiction movie, pancaked mostly on the windshield. What amazed me is the color of this wilderness: probably because we are in the rainy season, but wherever the predominant color is green, over a land brick red, which remain hidden, however. After Mount Isa had decided to stop at Tennant Creek, to visit the gold mine: attraction to tourists.

    The tour started off well but we had 3 little redheads who were horrors. Spoilt the tour for several people as we discussed it on the way. All that aside I wasn't going to let that wreck my experience...  more »

    If you want to know the history of Tennant Creek this isn't to be missed. We've been on many tours and been left with the feeling that the guide would rather be somewhere else. Not here, our guide was...  more »

  • We visited the underground mine (we did not take the other tour) and found it very interesting. However, just know that this mine isn't a real mine, it is a replica built for instructional & training purposes, and the person leading the tour, while knowledgeable and fun, had never worked or been into a real mine. They are upfront about the former once you have paid and the tour starts - I wished they were upfront before you book the tour. It's still excellent, but it feels a little dishonest to hide this until after the tour starts.
  • Small country town but lots of facilities, shops and other services. The mine museum and the tour is informative and interesting. The personal history of the family, war and the community is fascinating and shows an amazing community spirit.
  • The tours weren't on but it was still interesting to walk around & see
  • Both tours are good value for the money.
  • Good little tour
