Stayed just the one night as we had a sunrise Yellow Water Cruise the next morning. The standard double room was our most expensive room ($295 a night) on our Adelaide to Darwin trip. The room was very basic, although clean, and was missing one of the bedside cupboards and the picture over the bed. The bed was a bit... More

Outback rooms are basically hot-boxes fitted with noisy air conditioning units. Turn the unit off and open the window...and get blasted be the noise of your neighbours unit. Stuffy or noisy...your choice. I left at 3am after about 2 hours sleep (thanks to the alcohol). Returned the key with a note "worst paid night ever" and my mobile phone number,... More

Beautiful place. We had a budget room. Worth the price except the air con which is a bit noisy. You are very close to the nature and can feel kakadu spirit But restaurant is very expensive,drinks, breakfast, And the convenience store as well.

We stayed 3 nights and had a great time. The food in the restaurant was great - huge portions. The campsite is well managed with plenty of tours to do including yellow water cruises. The caravan sites aren't very large but they are grassed. Facilities were great and always clean shower/toilets. Laundry room and area to hang clothes. There were... More

This place for the rating of lodgement it is in is a great stay. They have adequate rooms that are clean and airconditioned, fairly basic but still a great and comfortable room. They have a couple of pools that you can cooll off in and a great bistro where you can eat breakfast lunch and dinner at reasonable prices. Its... More

Exceptionally well managed park in Kakadu. Polite and friendly staff. Well groomed lush vegetation visited by an abundance of bird life. (and this is the dry season after all.) extensive leisure area including two swimming pools, large alfresco bar and dining area. Our stay was only two nights. Will be back!

Stayed for three nights with two kids and had a great time, although there was a young staff member on the desk who didn't seem to have any idea what there was to do in the area if you didn't have a 4x4. Luckily we picked up a local map with lots of information about what we could do. The... More

This place is fantactic. The caravan facilities were excellent. The staff very friendly and helpful. Facilities including the pool made for a very relaxing stay. The afternoon sunset cruise was spectacular and worth every cent. Great wild life and spectacular sunset.
