Elliott, the halfway point between Darwin and Alice Springs, 250 kilometres north of Tennant Creek, is predominantly a service provider to surrounding pastoralists.
The town has a population of 700 and was named after Army Lieutenant Snow Elliott who established an army staging camp in the area for northbound troops during World War II. Prior to this, Elliott was just 'Number 8 Bore' on the massive Newcastle Waters Station.
Kulumindini is the traditional Aboriginal name for Elliott and the town lies on important Dreaming tracks. Educational walks through the Jim Rennie Memorial Park, organised through the Elliott Council, offer insight into the area's indigenous heritage. Elliott has a well kept nine-hole golf course, and a quick round or two is a popular way for tired travellers to stretch their legs. A range of accommodation is available.
