Barrow Creek

Barrow Creek is situated 283 kilometres north of Alice Springs on the Stuart Highway. Set against the backdrop of the Forster Ranges, Barrow Creek's proximity to a freshwater spring made it one of the outback's more pleasant stops for pioneers.

Wander around the old Telegraph Station, examine artefacts at the blacksmith's hut and be transported back to the pioneer days.

The Barrow Creek Hotel is also a welcome pit stop. Frequented by friendly Territory characters, the Hotel contains an interesting collection of memorabilia gathered over the years. The Hotel also provides basic accommodation, fuel, meals and refreshments.
