A PUBLIC forum on efforts to secure a pro-
posed gas pipeline route from Tennant Creek
to Mount Isa will be held next month.
A partnership between stakeholders here and in Mount
Isa - the TCMI Cross Border Alliance - planned to host
the forum to inform the public about their lobby efforts
and how the community could assist.
Tony Civitarese, chairman of the Regional Economic
Development Committee (REDC), said it was crucial
that the shorter Tennant to Mount Isa route was se-
lected above the Alice Springs to Moomba, in South
“The Northern Territory Government is now in the
final stages of the expressions of interest process and
we want to ensure that the final four proponents choose
the route that will benefit our region,” he said.
“We also want to ensure they are fully engaged with
Tennant Creek businesses to ensure our capacity is

TENNANT Creek’s culinary
delights are the focus of
a new television advertis-
ing campaign that encour-
ages tourists to stop over
Leading Australian foodie,

message through an Undercover
Memories Restaurant, Tex’s
Schnitzel House, Woks Up and
Anna’s Restaurant are featured
in the advertisements that were
filmed by Alice Springs company,
Chief Minister Adam Giles said
Barkly and he wanted visitors to
know all about it.
“Glenn has 35 years of experi-
ence in the food, beverage and
hospitality industry,” he said.
“He was the first Australian to sit
on the World Board of Chefs and
is Honorary Life President of the
Australian Culinary Federation.
“He has worked on businesses

The advertisements, which have
just started screening on Imparja,
were produced by Tourism NT
in conjunction with the Local
Tourism Advisory Committee in
Mr Giles said the commercials,
which cost $20,000 to make, will
be screened as two, one minute
“This means both ads will run
in the same prime time programs,
creating a more detailed message
than can be achieved in usual
30-second ads,” he said.
“They are aimed at influencing
the older, self-drive market travel-
ling north during the dry season.”
The new tourism blitz also in-
cludes promotion of the Battery
Hill Mining and Visitor Centre
which has just restarted a full
mine tour program.
Local Tourism Advisory Com-
mittee Chair Kate Foran said
the collaboration between Tour-
ism NT and the Barkly tourism
industry had resulted in a fresh
approach to promoting the region.
“The Undercover Chef promo-
tion is a wonderful result, con-
tinuing the developing theme of
‘Tennant Creek - A Stopover Full
of Surprises’,” she said.
“Relaunching an essential old-
favourite at the Battery is also a
great idea. Visitors will be thrilled
to be able to have the chance to
experience the mighty thumping
of those stampers.”
