About the facility

Timber Creek is located on the Victoria Highway approximately 600 kilometres south-west of Darwin, in an area known for its scenic escarpments and recreational fishing.

The business is owned by a local Indigenous organisation and comprises a Store (Supermarket) which is the main retail grocery outlet in the town of Timber Creek, together with accommodation units and a Caravan Park Area. There is self-serviced fuel available on the premises. The business also features a take-away food outlet.

Given the location of the town the level of trade through the business is very seasonal and fluctuates with the traditional tourist travel patterns.

The Store also employs support staff from the local community with primary duties including ; unpacking stock, stocking shelves, customer service / check-out and other assigned tasks. A groundsman is currently employed to maintain the grounds of the Caravan Park and attend to routine maintenance tasks associated with the accommodation units.

The Ngaliwurru-Wuli Aboriginal Corporation (NWAC) was formed over 35 years ago under the NT Associations Act to serve as an Outstation / Homelands Resource Centre, servicing homelands communities in the Big Rivers Region west of Katherine. NWAC’s footprint covers the region from Menggen (SW of Katherine) to Brumby Plains on the NT / WA border.
