The Perry family arrived in Tennant Creek in 1934 to search for gold. Nell lived in Adelaide with their three children for around 10 years, having a distance relationship, before moving to join her husband. Their first home was a dusty tin shed with ant bed floors and no Electricity. … Her husband, Con, did well in the mining industry and bought a butchers shop which flourished, enabling them to build a home which still stands today. Con made Central Australian history when, in the 1960’s, he discovered the water source for Tennant Creek at Artesian Wells. … Nell passed away at the Alice Springs Nursing Home in 2005 aged 97 years.
