Green grass, the first for a while, wonderful and very informative greeting when we pulled in. Lots of water that is from a spring, so no problems with calcium, can wash your car for a dollar, wash the car and van for two dollars. Ablutions are older, but very clean and great water pressure.

We spent one night here recently and thought it was wonderful! The campsites are shady and green and the facilities very well kept. We managed to do a couple of loads of washing and made the most of the clothes lines to dry our clothes! The pub is a fun place to gather at night and chat around the fire!

Good place to stop on the way to Darwin. Facilities very old but clean enough. For an overnight stop it was good. No power and you are unable to book ahead. Other campers there were friendly and the camp had a very relaxed feel.

Wow what a great place to stop in at. $10pp, no power, beautiful hot spring showers with amazing pressure. Great shady grassed areas. We nearly kept driving but did a U turn and glad we did. Better than any caravan park we have stayed in so far. Has laundry facilities and even beautiful walks to watch the sunrise and sunsets.

No power but beautiful spring water, hot showers, a communal open fire and a licensed kiosk make this place a must. Honestly didn't miss the power anyway. 20 bucks per night, you can't possibly go wrong and the hosts are great people. Kids toasted marshmallows. Just a great stop on the trip up north. Definitely a regular stop from now... More

Banka banka is a very interesting and comfortable stay. You have shady grassy sites, good facilities, very warm welcome but it does fills up by early evening. I think you will get a site but it could be further one. They have bar and entertainment at night and during a day you can for fantastic spring walk. We really enjoyed... More

Great spot to spend the night, $10 pp/pn with lush green grass sites, warm showers, camp kitchen, laundry and even a bar. No powered sites, easy access for vans and tents. Camp host is friendly and creates a warm atmosphere around camp, and the camp fire. A must!

We stayed there with our caravan while heading to Darwin. We were greeted by Marie with a cheery smile and after setting up van we were soon joined by about 5 other vanners. No power but the water is pure spring water and is beautiful. Happy hour lasted 2+ hours and our hosts offered us a run to check the... More
