Attack Creek Historical Reserve

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

The Attack Creek Memorial is situated on the Attack Creek Historical Reserve, located on the Stuart Highway 74 kilometres north of Tennant Creek. The memorial recalls that ‘On 25 June 1860 John McDouall Stuart and his two companions William Kekwick and Benjamin Head reached Attack Creek the most northerly point of that expedition. Hostile natives and illness forced the party to return’. A short walk down the creek from the monument you can see where the old Stuart Highway once ran to the east of the current road.
