“Experience life in Tennant Creek's 1930s outback gold rush, panning for your own gold and touring the underground mine to see the machinery in action.”

The Battery Hill Mining Centre is located in Tennant Creek 1.5 kilometres from the town centre along Peko Road. The Battery Hill Mining Centre overlooks the town, the surrounding countryside and is the site of the No. 3 Government Gold Stamp Battery, where it all started with the 1930's outback gold rush. Enjoy an underground mine tour and watch the machinery in action (cost applies). Wander through the two museums, Freedom, Fortitude and Flies, - a look at social life on the goldfields during the early formative years and the McLaughlin Minerals Collection - a spectacular array of mineral samples from around the world, Australia and local.
