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

Located 35km before Kings Canyon, this is a working cattle station. It has cosy small safari-style canvas tents on solid floors with shared amenities and a kitchen-BBQ area. The couple who runs the resort are friendly and very helpful. Nice walks from the resort. A very nice place to experience the vastness and isolation of the outback. We stayed only... More

Don't know what it was about this place but we simply could not connect with it. There was something about it which gave off a negative vibe. Maybe it was the not quite cleanness of the place. Maybe the uninteresting sunset at Three Tank Hill. Maybe the disinterested service at the bar. Cannot put my finger on it...

I stayed here on the night of 23rd November with the tour company and was very surprised by how comprehensive the facilities are for tourists in this far-from-anything outback spot. Drinking water is clear and plentiful, not awful bore water. The showers and toilets are clean and functional. The tour companies have a rather large visible and kind of noisy... More

We stayed here with my parents and children in July in the on site tents (I can't remember the official name for them - Safari Tents perhaps). Anyway, they were all tiled floor, had a heater and fan and spacious enough! The real highlight for us was the communal areas, the camp kitchen was well equipped and spacious, while the... More

We camped here one night in a tent. The site was lovely and large but slanted as were many of the available sites. What made the site good was the size, a shady tree and proximity to a camp wash basin which was only used by us. Another bonus is the camp fire sites that are set up - beware... More

Stayed the 29th and 21 st if September. While we thought it was pretty basic the sites are bug and the staff are super helpful. Whilst Kings canyon resort is more established it is very expansive and crowded... Yep in the middle of australia. Kings creek is easy and basic with a cold pool. It is clean however the food...
