We were travelling as a family with older children (15 and 11) and stayed in the safari cabins. The cabins are pretty basic with just two single beds, a heater and a fan - but the beds are comfortable and we all stayed warm despite the very cold nights during winter. Bring food to BBQ or you can purchase a... More

Stayed here with a another family. The booking was mucked up but they fixed it and ended up with our own campground . Staff were very helpful and friendly. Highly recommend ! Clean facilities , nice spacious camp areas and spectacular views. Best place we stayed while travelling around Uluru and Macdonnell ranges.

We enjoyed the safari cabins -- our kids thought they were a lot more fun than staying in a hotel or a homestay. Good breakfast included, helpful staff, nice chance to meet other travellers around the campfire, beautiful stars at night, close to Kings Canyon. The only downside was that the heaters in the cabins couldn't keep up with the... More

We booked the 'remote and romantic night under the stars'. We had a helicopter ride, our own chef, a night under the stars in swags with a blazing campfire (in the middle of no-where but with a flushing toilet and a hot shower!) and a drive round part of the station. We had a great time, thanks heaps to Liz,... More

A must for those wanting to experience the outback life style: easy going ,relaxing with just enough sophistication to make a stay comfortable and make any one wish they could stay longer. There is choice of camp ground or Safari cabin, cooking facilities or cafe Shower block are clean . Friendly staff and friendly animals

Stayed in a safari cabin for one night only while visiting the King's Canyon area at the very beginning of April. Loved it and everything about it. Relaxed, very friendly and welcoming atmosphere and, without exception, the staff couldn't do enough to help. The food served in the cafe and at breakfast was good and the accommodation was clean and... More

Camped here for 2 nights and had a great time. Friendly staff, great breakfasts! The camp site was well grassed, and shower block clean. There were a couple of school groups next to us also, but well managed. Was great to see the camels and the donkey. Their friendly dog took us for a great walk out to the water... More

I came here for my morning breakfast. Outback hospitality here was truly great. There were two hardy Japanese helpers that cooked up a magnificent Aussie lads' breakfast with eggs, bacons with grit, beans. This is a well-managed station with camels being exported to the Middle East. There's a great documentary made called Unfinished Business, which told the story of the... More

We stopped here for one night during our Emu Run tour of Uluru and the red centre. Emu Run have a private permanent camp site here with static wooden floored tents, a mess hall and a fire pit. All of this was just perfect and meant that my wife was happy that she did not have to sleep out under... More
