The Pussycat Flats Racecourse hosts the Pine Creek Cup in May. In the centre of the track are some very fine cathedral termite nests. They provide homes for the thousands of termites that built them obviously, but also for the rare Hooded Parrot. I'm sure the racetrack is visited by more birdwatchers than racegoers and Pine Creek is famous as having the most bird species recorded in the Northern Territory. It may be in the middle of nowhere, but birdwatchers can't resist a site like that.
I have no idea how the place got its name.
