Mataranka, Capital of the Never Never

Home
Home

Mataranka, NT is the location of the Jeannie Gunn novel (1902) and movie (1982), "We of the Never Never". Visit the Elsey Cemetery and the recreated Elsey Homestead to see how tough life was when the Territory was being colonised.
Today you can see the barra being fed, marvel at the glorious pink water lilies, float downstream at Bitter Springs in the beautifully coloured water, see termite mounds in all different shapes and sizes and see lots of flowering turkey bush alongside the highway in the dry.
