Bamboo Creek Tin Mine in Litchfield National Park, Northern Territory, Australia

Bamboo Creek 2WD accessible.

Until the early 1950s, the park was site of several tin and copper mines and relics of this mining era can be seen at Bamboo Creek Tin Mine. The wide variety of remains which survive are in good condition.

From Bamboo Creek carpark it is a 1km walk to view the sites. Additional Walker Creek Walk (start at carpark), approx 3.5kms return, 2 hrs duration, level (moderate).

The walk takes you across Bamboo Creek to the old mine site at the base of the Tabletop Range.

The walk does a loop around the site starting at the ruins of the stone buildings that were used as living quarters by the miners.

In the remaining walls of the main hut you can still see the slits in the wall that they could use to fire on attackers if the need arose.

The path then climbs up the hill to the old mine shaft. You are not allowed to enter the shaft. Following the path to two old tanks used to store water for the mill below to process the ore.

The path then takes you back down to the ruins of the mill where most of the machinery is still in place including the old engine that was used to run the mill. Sadly over the years people have removed many parts as souvenirs. The path joins back up with the path coming from the car park. Return back to the car park. No toilets at this attraction.
