Information

Pine Creek is situated 220 km south of Darwin and 90km north of Katherine at the junction of the Stuart and Kakadu Highways in the Top End of Australia's Northern Territory.
The town was established in the late 1800's as a result of the discovery of gold by the crew of the Overland Telegraph Line. Pine Creek still relies on mining for its survival, with the majority of the population involved in mining or related industries. Tourism has recently become an important part of the town's economy as facilities for travelers have improved.
Pine Creek has a population of around 650, which includes surroundings stations and Kybrook Farm, an Aboriginal community of around 100 people from various tribal groups. The population has doubled in the last year with the opening of a gold mine, GBS Gold, at Union Reefs and an iron ore mine, Territory Resources, at Frencis Creek.
The Climate is tropical with the Wet Season from October to March averaging 1500mm of rainfall a year. The dry season lasts from April to September, with clear, sunny skies and temperatures in the mid twenties every day.
