Very appealing park with good amenities for all types of travellers. Located in an ideal spot close to all facilities. Visiting bush poet Jimmy Hooker performance is an experience travellers should not miss.

Great location . 1.2 kilometer walk into town. Great reception from staff. Sites are large drive through not that squashed in like sardines in a can. Cheap enough price for the facility's. Jimmy the bush tucker man. Now he is a true character. Wonderful poetry and description on native food. If nothing else. He is the best

We previously stayed at this park and had an average stay. When passing through the area a few days later we pulled over into the car park to swap drivers and eat lunch as we had already stayed there. Instead of politely asking us to leave, the receptionist threatened to call the police if we didnt leave and was extremely... More

Friendly staff, hot clean showers. Nice pool. Good camp kitchen. Drive thru sites. Basic but got everything you need for a one night stop over which is all you want in Tennant Creek. It's out of town which is good because the town itself is a bit rough.

I was ready to give this location a very bad wrap mostly because out of the whole park I only found one bbq that was operational and even then had to buy matches from the reception area to get it started. But then I considered the good points, they have extremely large sites to park your caravan or camper, vast... More

The park has beautiful shady trees and well maintained facilities. The staff are welcoming, friendly, courteous and accommodating. The cabin was clean, functional and comfortable. We went for a walk after dinner within the grounds and the night sky glittered brilliantly with stars. This is because there were no town streetlights to obliterate the view as the OutbackCP is located... More
