A lovely oasis in the middle of some harsh country. I loved all the native trees providng shade and making the sites so attractive. Wish we had more time as it was the sort of place you could relax at for a while.

We stayed here for two nights camping and when we saw the state of the on site rooms we were at least thankful we did camp. The camping fees are over the top even in a remote area like this but the cost of staying in rooms that are in such a bad state of disrepair - no thanks. The... More

Have just spent 2 nights booked into a powered caravan site. On the first day when we arrived I noticed that there were many vacant sites so figured we would probably have a bit of space, how wrong was I. They seem to try to put everyone in one spot when there are many vacant spaces available. On the second... More

Stayed here upon our visit to see the canyon. Stayed here as the options were limited and was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were basic, but clean. The grounds were looked after, and the bbqs were the cleanest I came across on my travels from Sydney. The toilet facilities were clean, however you do come across the occasional spider (which is...

ALL Staff a credit to the resort. Campground facilities were spotless wildlife was wonderful... lizards and birds amused us in the pool area and dingoes strolled past us at night with no annoyance..had been alerted that this may happen when we checked in. Pool was a welcome relief in 40 degree heat. people just need to be aware that it... More

We stayed in our camper trailer for three nights, and had one of the sites directly overlooking the canyon. The location was great, and the proximity of the tavern is great for a beer, or pub food. As to be expected, the food and drink are overpriced, but civilization is a long way away. Now for the down side: 1.... More

We found the dorm rooms very comfortable and tidy. They even provided towels. The swimming pool was fine. The toilets and showers I thought were fine and clean. Overall the place fine. The staff were friendly at reception and as there weren't many people staying in the dorms they gave each couple their own dorm room and didn't put us... More

$45 per night for a powered site in the off season seemed a bit pricey. However, it's very handy to the local attractions and offers a number of dining options. Our site #66 had uninterrupted views of the range but very little shade. Pool was ok but not a lot of shade. Staff were helpful. The food at the Bistro... More
