Barrow Creek


Barrow Creek is a very small town, current population of 11, in the southern Northern Territory of Australia. It is located on the Stuart Highway, about 280 km north of Alice Springs, about half way from there to Tennant Creek. The main feature of the town is the roadhouse/hotel. A number of mining companies are currently exploring in the area, although none of the current residents are involved in the mining industry.

Barrow Creek is a small place on the Stuart Highway about 224 kilometres south of Tennant Creek and about 280 kilometres north of Alice Springs. We stopped at the Barrow Creek Roadhouse during our journey south in the Northern Territory - it was very busy at the time with the teams participating in the World Solar Car Challenge – stopping for a break.  This challenge goes from Darwin to Adelaide – the cars are various shapes with some providing only enough room for a very small driver.

Barrow Creek also has one of the historic sights for the overland telegraph that ran from Adelaide to Darwin. This is housed in a beautiful stone building with lovely shaded verandahs around the perimeter. 

The Roadhouse has fuel, food and drink - they also house the Barrow Creek Hotel - a convenient place for a toilet stop. There is plenty of room to pull over while towing a caravan.
