It's is really a caravan park set up on a cattle station. Sites were grassy and service was excellent. Prices were very cheap. They was a communal fire and some great entertainment, all free. A entities were basic but very clean and included everything you needed. Highly recommend a stay here.

A very convenient campsite for an overnight stay - located just off the Stuart Highway 100 km north of Tennant Creek on a pleasant cattle property. At the end of June it was busy and fairly full but the drive-through caravan sites were well organised, on level ground and all had water, no power. The facilities were clean and basic... More

We stopped at Banka Banka Station for a couple of nights, very reasonable rates, lots of fresh spring water to hook up to, with the caravans parked around in a large area circular format. Very friendly caretaker, met some great friends here. No electricity available.

Sounds trivial, but getting some quality water to drink is wonderful. Nice spot anyway. Couple of interesting walks. We use it regularly as a camp spot when travelling around. Friendly folks and good facilities.

Great camp spot. The owners are friendly and every night they light the bonfire everyone comes together for a few drinks and a chat. They have a reasonably priced bar. It's great to get together with everyone. The the amenities are basic but clean We call in every time we come this way

Stayed here early march, plenty of room for the tent as not many other guests, a bit run down but has all you need for an overnight stay, showers were somewhat clean with hot water, toilets were again nearly clean. Overall not too bad, other accommodation in 200 km radius are very similar to worse. It was $10 per person,... More

Camped here overnight with the family a little while back in our camper trailer. Great site, great price, great showers and even a bar to grab a beer or three, Will be staying here again this year on our journey through to Broome.

Found this place on the map and a quick search of this site confirmed our decision to give it a go. Well everyone is right, this is a hidden gem. Beautiful lush lawns, great showers and toilets. The owners were absolutely lovely. Unfortunately we weren't able to experience the fire and bar but it was close to the wet season... More

We stopped here after deciding the accommodation options in Tennant Creek were grim. The reviews we read were positive and the experience we had was as well. We got there early afternoon which was a good thing as it seems to be quite a popular stopover for campers on the highway. We got a shady spot under a tree immediately... More

We stayed here by chance on our way up to Darwin and then made it part of our trip on the way back. Just lovely and the caretakers were so friendly. Was nice and quiet except for the generator they have to use. We got to stay in the permanent tents on the way back which was a nice break... More
