Mary Ann Dam
To start the ball rolling, you should definitely head to Mary Ann Dam. It's a hit recreation spot for tourists. It's quite accessible from the town, one quick drive and you're already there! At Mary Ann Dam there's just loads to do! You can pop in for a swim, have a tasty barbecue, or a quaint little picnic, or go on an entertaining bush walk.

Lake Mary Ann is located about 5km north of Tennant Creek and is man-made with many water sports facilities as swimming, canoeing and a rich vegetation and natural bush that will enchant your eyes. Take photos and walk along as it is very refreshing and relaxing at the same time! Its construction began in 1979-1980, but since then, the area changed a lot and now looks very nice.
 
The Karlu Karlu (Devils Marbles)
Just within the vicinity of Mary Ann Dam lie the mysterious structures of Devils Marbles
They're clusters of peculiar rock spheres scattered about through a wide, shallow valley. It's truly quite a sight because you've got boulders precariously balanced on top of one another. You'll come across this phenomenon and the first thing you'll ask yourself is, “What if it falls?” Turns out, this is the product of millions of years of erosion.
 
Pay an extra fee and you can get to camp out on the ancient landscape. Be one of the lucky few who get to see these magnificent structures at sunrise and sunset. Be sure to take pictures.
 
So if you've got an eye for the unusual, the baffling Karlu Karlu is definitely a must-see!

A kilometre and a half from town is the Battery Hill Mining Centre. This is your last stop. Here you can pretend to go back a few years to experience life in Tennant Creek's outback gold rush in the 1930s. This is seriously going to top your Aussie adventure!
 
Go on an underground mine tour so that you can delightfully see the machinery in action. Walk through the two museums, Flies, Fortitude and Freedom—to have a look at the society on the goldfields during the early years, and the McLaughlin Minerals Collection—a stunning array of mineral samples from across the world. And the best part is… you can try to pan for your own gold! You can even get to keep what you find!
