Battery Hill was named after the stamp battery that was built in 1939 to provide processing facilities for Tennant Creek’s many small gold mines. The plant operated until the 1980s, although it closed during World War II and also for a few years in the late 1950s. The centre has a museum and you can take underground mine tours.
