About Tennant & District Times
Our hub in Tennant Creek extends across the vast Barkly region so our footprint is nearly twice the size of Victoria.
We cover news and views from towns, communities and pastoral stations across the Barkly, encouraging our readers who live in some of Australia’s most remote locations to contribute to our weekly publication.
Our newspaper is available in real-view online, extending our readership throughout the Northern Territory the nation.
The Tennant & District Times has a long history of mentoring young reporters, and many have gone on to forge careers in media and communications.
We have community contributors in several communities such as Borroloola at the northern tip of the Barkly, Elliott in the Territory’s heart, Ali Curung and the Utopia homelands.
Our publication is truly local – we cover local news about local people and local events.
We support the communities we serve and welcome local input and ideas.
Promoting local events, telling stories about locals, by locals is the core of our philosophy.
As an independently-owned Territory newspaper we are proud of our 45-year history of delivering news across such a broad regional and remote footprint.
