Juno is a 1000 hectare property approximately 10km’s from Tennant Creek Township and is owned by the Barkly Regional Council. The Department of Education have leased 250 hectares from the Barkly Regional Council for a period of 10 years to run the Juno Centre.

In the last few years, Vocational Education and Training (VET) activity has grown significantly in the Barkly region, particularly at Tennant Creek High School. The concept of Juno as a training facility was a solution to the need for a relevant training facility, close to the school.

Significant works have been undertaken to make Juno modern and sustainable. The works have included repairing of horse stables and cattle yards, addition of new transportable buildings including accommodation for 17 students and two teachers/trainers, commercial kitchen, recreation room and classroom.

The Juno Centre is also home to the Healthy Life, Creative Life initiative which is an election commitment of the Northern Territory Government.

The centre was officially opened on Monday 25 September 2017, by The Honorable Eva Lawler, Minister for Education, MLA
