This was one of the most disappointing places I have stayed in more than 30 years of travel. They advertise themselves as "luxury accommodation". Luxury, it is not. Basic and poorly run is a closer description. I accept that this is a pseudo outback experience and that the accommodation is in tents. However, whilst in good condition, the tents are... More

With the only other choice in the area being Kings Canyon Resort, we thought this may be a better experience. Tents were small and very basic. There was no where to place a suitcase for example. Toilets and showers basic with no where to hang or place belongings. Kitchen lacking in everything, including utensils, pots, pans, etc. breakfast was extremely... More

We stayed here at Kings Creek Station on the 6th & 7th April. We got to stay in the little tents provided by them and absolutely loved it. My kids got to sit around a fire at night telling stories, do a helicopter flight which they loved and feed the camels. The new addition Nibbles is adorable. The staff were... More

Really enjoyed this, our second night of SWAG camping and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had our own fire pit for cooking but were close to the Station cafe for coffee in the morning. Had a helicopter ride when we were there and used the swimming pool. Helicopter ride was great, they also offered camel and quad... More

I was there with some friends for a one night stop when visiting Kings Canyon after spending some days in Ayers Rock. We had the small lodges, for 2 people, with fan but well ventilated (fresh during night, you will melt yourself if you try to take a nap after lunch). With shared toilets/showers closed, very clean and maintained. you... More

KINGS CREEK STATION is a working cattle/ camel station, which is located, just outside of Watarrka National Park. It is run by Ian and Lyn, who have been here for over 30 years. I booked our family here, during high season in July as a special treat since we were travelling elsewhere and could not catch up with them. The... More

What a great stay at Kings Creek Station. Welcomed by Michelle and Dan we were taken by Quad bike on an adventure through the property coming across plenty of dingo tracks, wild camels and brumby's and desert scrub. We chose to do the overnight camping adventure where we had canapes watching the sun set over the Canyon and watched a... More

Good location just a few km from Kings Creek, which makes it a great overnight option on your way to/from the Creek. Stayed in a "Safari Cabin" for one night. The walls are tent fabric, but in a sturdy frame which makes it very stable. There was a major thunderstorm that night but none of the Cabins suffered any damage.... More

Kings Creek Station was a good place for a one night stop while we visited Kings Canyon. We stayed in a tent cabin. It was small and hot but there was a fan and the tent was well ventilated. The service was quite good. No camels to ride when we were there.
