There has been a primary school in Pine Creek for over 100 years, which makes the school the oldest in the Northern Territory.
Pine Creek School is located in the Pine Creek Township and services the nearby Kybrook Community as well as students from Pine Creek Township.
Pine Creek School has an interesting historical past based on mining. It has a strong link with the Chinese community who have lived in Pine Creek since the mid 1800s where they ran Market Gardens and also mined for Gold.
Pine Creek is located on one of the highest points in the Northern Territory and is surrounded by rocky hillsides, boggy flats and small waterways.
