Batchelor, NT

Batchelor is a small settlement town in the Northern Territory of Australia, best known for serving as the entrance point for Litchfield National Park, and while many visitors have their eye set on the national park, Batchelor is also worthwhile investigating. Its history includes service as a major air force base during World War II and the town was important in uranium mining during the early Cold War years. The Batchelor Heritage Walk offers further insight into the significant indigenous, farming, and mining history of the area, with explanatory signs along the walk, as does the Batchelor Museum. Batchelor is also home to Batchelor Institute, which caters specifically to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. The Coomalie Cultural Centre conducts artist residencies, cultural projects, and exhibitions and also hosts a retail space of locally made art and crafts.
