This has to be a cunning plan by Tennants Creek tourist bureau to trap people there and make them enjoy the town. I can personally recommend the floor space in the empty building within the 24hr BP, just sweep a space slear of dust and settle down. The lovely ladies in the BP provided me with tea and sandwiches at 6am and then I set off to explore the town.
Tennants Creek has a gold mine centre and an aboriginal centre and some pubs and not much else. I always wondered how much time I could spent at a gold mine and luckily I now know. Its about 5 hours before you start to go mad (this included several hours of fruitless gold panning).
This glorious day is then followed by a very long bus journey to the coast. Not fun.
