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

This historic cattle station is a relaxed stop along the Stuart Highway. We travelled from Alice Springs to Banka Banka Station on our outback adventure journey. The owners are a little bit eccentric which beautiful match with the environment and boozed the total experience. We also loved the station dog which has a loose sparkle. The campsites are spacious and... More

On the way to Darwin we made an early start across the Barkly highway and got to Banka Banka just after lunch, the homestead looked inviting but we made the decision to press on. Big mistake. Spent the night finally in a rest area regretting not stopping, so on the way back we did not make the same error and... More

We stayed on our way to Darwin and couldn't wait to get back on our way home. Had a bush poet on the way up and C&W musician on the way home. Lovely shady spots, 9.5kg washing machine for $2. Inexpensive and so full of travellers guaranteed to share some many stories. Promote travellers to share their in their talents... More

Situated about 70km north of Threeways on the Stuart Highway, this place is a great place for a stop over! Greeted by the owners with ice blocks for the kids as it was a hot day, we found a beautiful shady spot under the trees, grass all around us and lots of people there. The owners have transformed the old... More

Lovely station property close to the highway. Open airy camp kitchen and a good bathroom block. Plenty of space, a reasonable amount of shade and good grassy areas. The managers are good friendly country folk.
