General Information on Barkly Tableland

Experience the big skies and far horizons of the outback at Barkly Tablelands, rolling plains of grassland that stretch east of Tennant Creek and are home to some of the Territory's premier cattle stations. Travellers are drawn to the Barkly for its rugged beauty and to experience the sense of freedom that comes from driving through its long stretches of uninhabited land. Watch as the colours of this immense landscape change with the sun, as rocky hillsides pick up the rays between daybreak and evening.

Drive through the Mitchell grassland, through which hardy stockmen drove their cattle along the tablelands' endless stock routes not so long ago. These plains are home to cattle stations the size of small European countries. Road trains have taken over the droving, but the same plucky characters still work the cattle today. You can meet a few of them at the iconic Barkly Homestead, the tablelands' only service centre.
