Northern Territory Tours
Batchelor - Cities, Towns and Localities
The small township of Batchelor was named after the South Australian Labour politician Egerton Lee Batchelor, who was Minister for the Northern Territory in 1911.

In its early days, the town serviced the area for mining and agriculture, then became the base for the Allied Air Force during World War II, with the local airport expanding to accommodate the large USA B-17 aircrafts. In the 50s a prospector named Jack White discovered uranium deposits at nearby Rum Jungle. The mine closed in 1963 with the uranium treatment plant closing in 1971. Today, Batchelor major industry is tourism, known as your gateway to the popular Litchfield National Park.
