My husband and I just completed a quick trip from Darwin to Tennant Creek and stayed the first night at the Outback Caravan Park after reading reviews here. We were pleasantly surprised as the park is clean and well maintained. We booked a deluxe cabin which was clean and adequate with aircon and TV. We were going to eat at... More

Great caravan park after a long drive. Just on outskirts of town with bush feel. Older but very clean and functional amenities, hot showers, camp kitchen, grassy tent sites, friendly staff and safe feel. Plenty of caravans, camper trailers and tents the night we stayed. We'll be back next trip.

Found this little gem of a Caravan Park of the main road at Tennant Creek. Location was just right and very peaceful. Leah at Reception was very helpful and from our conversation from the same area as I came from. We were that happy with this site that made a decision to stay on our way home in April.

We camped overnight and enjoyed it more so as it is off the highway and quieter than were we stayed previously . Very welcoming staff, green shady campsite, neat, clean camp kitchen, and amenities. Well maintained pool was wonderful. We will stay here again.

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
