Barrow Creek

Barrow Creek is almost 300km north of Alice Springs and has a current population of 11.

This ute was a bit of a local landmark.  When things go wrong here, they have a tendency to stay wrong.  The owner of the fuel station / shop / pub that makes up most of Barrow Creek told us he spends about $180 a day on diesel to run the electrical generators.

Its a strange kind of place.

As you may be able to tell from these pictures - it was hot here too!

You can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday.  SM


  1. I can't imagine living in a place like that and I don't understand how or why it exists with just a population of 11.

    One wonders how anyone ever ends up in such places - and stays! Atmosphere and then some. YAM xx

  3. Wow, what a desolate place! I can see why it only has a population of 11.

  4. Your shots do convey the idea of heat... ;)
    Have a nice week ahead!

  5. I think I have had cars that looks like that! It sure is a forbidding landscape. I guess there's no chamber music society in that town, no delicatessen, no anxiety therapy clinic......maybe soon no population!

  6. Too hot for me..11 people!! Wow..I hope they all like each other..What does one do in a place like that??

  7. I cannot imagine how a person could live there
