MINING HISTORY
sie 2019
Well there are lots of mining history areas in Australia and this is one of them. BUT - it's a bit better than most and well worth a visit. I mean, what else is there to do in Tennant Creek anyway. We stayed in the caravan park with a two meter fence, with a gate locked at night for our own safety. Enough said, hey.

Lovely Tour & Really helpful friendly staff.
wrz 2019
The lady (I didn't get her name) at the visitor centre was one of the most friendly and helpful people I have met on my trip. You can tell she has a passion for Tennant Creek and I left with information and places to visit. I returned the following day to do the mining tour and was not disappointed. Bob was fantastic and it was a pleasure to hear the stories and imagine what it would have been like to work in the mines. This was a highlight in Tennant Creek and I highly recommend taking one of the tours. Thank you.

Thank you so much for your welcome comments. The Lady's name was Roddy and she is always cheerful and informative. Bob has spent the tour season with us and we are so lucky to have him do tours which he enjoys doing. (He has now returned safely to his home down south as numbers are in the decline with the quiet summer season approaching). We are most appreciative to any ambassadors passing on any positive comments about the Battery Hill Mining Centre and the Tennant Creek VIC. So......thank you once more

Nigel is very informative about all things Tennant Creek and only too willing to help while Brian is a great tour guide through the mine. We found the mine tour very interesting, it’s unfortunate that it will all be closed shortly as the Government withdraws funding. See it while you can

Tours 9:30 and 11am, or self guided

We took a self guided tour as the times didnt suit us while in Tennant Creek, unfortunately. We wandered up the hill and through the buildings with displays. The self guided tour map was easy to read and there was lots to look at.

Seriously Awesome!
lip 2019 • Dla rodziny
We weren't sure what to expect when we arrived but boy were our expectations blown out of the water! From the antique machinery and cars, to the information centre, to the museums, to the grounds our heads were turning taking in everything. The mine tour was unreal! Brian was so informative and involved everyone in some way. We all learnt so much and will be telling anyone traveling this way to visit. Well done to all involved at this awesome centre.

A must see!!
cze 2019 • Dla rodziny
We arrived at 9:20am in time to join the underground mining tour with Bob. It was a great way to see the working and the information provided was fantastic. We then wandered up the hill and had a look in the geological room of rock specimens. There were so many crystal, silver and copper to name a few. We went next door to find the display of the information about the war's and the Soldier who earned his Victorian Cross. There is a lot to see in and around. The last display we say was of the establishment of the Tennant Creek area and how they lived.
A truly remarkable showing of all things old and new. We had a chat with the Information Centre staff and the experience just got better. I woukd definitely recommend getting into town early or staying at least one night to have a look at this tiny town.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. I will pass on to Bob your comments. I hope the young fellow is enjoying his ironstone sample (& I am hoping my memory serves me well that i have the right visitors) Both Nigel and I hopefully enrich visitor's experiences with detailed information while in the region. Keep safe on your journey and once again thank you for coming to visit us and Tennant Creek in general. Cheers Roddy ..BHMC Site Manager

This place has been very well preserved and the history is amazing. If you drive through Tennant Creek and wonder why it is there at all this will enlighten you. Well worth the visit.
