Renner Springs sits in the golden heart of the Barkly Tablelands. Located 150 kilometres north of Tennant Creek along the Stuart Highway, Renner Springs was established when Dr Frederick Renner noticed an unusual flock of birds while working on the Overland Telegraph line in 1877.
The historic Renner Springs Roadhouse has plenty of Northern Territory character and a friendly atmosphere. Being such a small community, the annual get-together known as the Renner Springs Races is held in Tennant Creek. The Roadhouse building is an old army hut relocated after World War II from the army's staging camp at Banka Banka Station, 50 kilometres south. Banka Banka Station dates from 1885, and you can experience a little of its history by staying overnight in the bush camp located there.
