I stay here very regularly for business, and is by far the best in Tennant Creek. The cabins are always clean and comfortable, the drinks cold and the pool is lovely. The staff are so friendly and accomodating.

Stayed here for two nights on a powered site. Lots of shade, which is very much appreciated in the Australian outback. Facilities were good and clean. A decent size pool to escape from the hot weather. Very friendly and ready to help staff

We loved the pool here! Shady and cool, just what was needed after a hit day on the road. Camp sites were good, nice to have grass, camp kitchen well equipped. Unfortunately the facilities closest to our camp site were 'bug city'. The main block was better but still a lot of bugs. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Hi there Peter J. Thanks alot for your feedback. We do get that quite often that our pool is lovely and refreshing and we take pride in keeping our grass healthy and green for campers. I'm afraid the bugs come with the Northern Territory outback but a great natural repellent is essential oils such as lemon, orange and peppermint. Safe... More

Our temporary home in Tennant Creek has been the Outback Caravan Park. As part of our relocation with my work, we will be in the park for 3 months. We had previously stayed here a few years ago on our travels and had great memories of a friendly park with great facilities, shady sites, and a relaxed atmosphere. It's great... More

We stayed in a cabin - it was clean and tidy with comfortable beds (although the bunks were a bit hot without a mattress protector). Wonderful shower and air conditioning and the TV had brilliant reception! The staff were really friendly and helpful ๐Ÿ˜Š

I stayed here as my employer was yet to organise a permanent place. I enjoyed the cabin I stayed in clean and tidy. The most friendliest staff at the shop and very helpful with information. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling thought. It is slightly out of town which makes it quiet ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„

Hello Scotty Thank you for your compliments. The staff were very happy to see this feedback from you, we try to help where we can. Being that few 100 meters out of town does help to keep the noise down. Thanks again and we hope to see you again. Leah More

Hello Lynette Under New Management! Thank you for your comparison.

There is a couple of differences 1. we are approximately 500m from town, so it is quiet 2. Our rugged... More

Stayed here just one night on the way up from Alice to Darwin. Powered site and amenities all very good nice clean toilets and showers. Great location and close enough to walk into town. 2 bed cabin was a little dated and small but was ok for just one night.

We have 8 new cabins coming online in the coming weeks, with new, modern furnishings, so next time your in town, maybe you would like to try a new master cabin.

I agree with the person who stayed at this park for some months.(see review below.) It is a lovely park, set off the main road, with lots of trees. The pool is good to have, keeps you cool in the 40 degree heat.
