I stayed in this place for a couple of months while working in Tennant Creek, and I'm writing this on my last night here. I have a small 'slide-on' caravan that sits on the back of my ute, so I can make no comment on the on-site cabins. However, the place as a whole is certainly well kept, the amenities... More

I strongly recommend this park for an overnight stay. The drive through sites are rather narrow but conveniently placed and good clean facilities are nearby. The staff were friendly and allowed us to check-in early. It is in a quiet location, not far from town an gave us a good base where we could rest and restock our pantry.

Located out of the town centre, this caravan park has basic but adequate facilities for a short stay. However the ground were infested with tiny water ants that climbed into our van. We saw people putting talcum powder around their wheels etc as it apparently stops them from crossing over.

Good clean facilities and plenty of them. Excellent camp kitchens. Enjoyed the happy hours and the entertainment options on site. Good sites and space if you back in. Drive throughs did not have annex space. Good staff. Pleasant stay.

We found this Park within our expectations, and interesting town and had everything most travelers would require for a rest point on long travels but don't expect luxury, this is outback style, dated but pleasant Park. Staff friendly and we appreciated it was quiet. We will return to the Outback Park on our return trip for a stopover again because... More

We stayed one night in a two bedroom cabin - one room had a double bed and the other had four bunk beds. Unfortunately, none of the lights above the bunk beds worked - three had switches broken on the lights and the other had a non-functioning globe. In the double bed room, only one of the bed lights worked... More

We weren't expecting much based on reviews we had read. Arrived and were thinking a cabin might be more secure but only budget ones available which were old and dated. Ended up with a powered site for the caravan. Nice park, well maintained, clean amenities and pool, well stocked shop. People were friendly and helpful. caught the courtesy bus into... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night with our dog on the way from Darwin to Sydney. It was our first night on the road and after driving 1,000kms the cabin was a welcome sight! We were in a 2 bedroom cabin (but did not use the bunk-bed room) and I imagine having 6 people in one of... More
