Welcome. Here you can find the most unique, fun, traditional, tasty, wacky, historical, contemporary, discovered and undiscovered places, events, experiences and things to do.
Whether you're a local or travelling in the NorthernTerritory, you shouldn't miss the action-packed Barkly Rodeo, one of the region's largest social events. To be held at the Tennant Creek Rodeo Grounds on Thursday 11th July, the gates open at 5.30pm and the action starts at 6.00pm until late.

The evenings' events are:

Manns Cattle Transport Open Saddle Bronc
Murranji Water Drilling Open Bull Ride
Mitech Bullock Ride
5B Bucking String Station Buck Jump
Barkly Plumbing Services Poddy Ride

As well as all the excitement in the arena, the clowns, the atmosphere, there's a licenced bar, food stalls and entertainment. Plus a competition for the best dancer.

So break out your best cowboy/cowgirl boots, hats and belt buckles and come along.

And plan to stay around for the Tennant Creek Show which is on the next day, Friday 12th July.
