I lived in the Territory years ago and used to visit Mattaranka Homedtead often I returned with my grandchildren this month but decided not to stay I was disgusted by the dessicration of the thermal pools, they look as if they have had all the plant life removed, the natural pools now resemble sand stone backyard swimming pools They have...

We where really happy with our experience and the close proximity to the bitter springs. Just a short walk down the road. Don't forget to pack your noodle, so that you can float in the springs. A great park and very helpful staff. Would recommend the park to visitors of all ages.

Great spot. Managers efficient and registered quickly. We set up our van down the end right on the water (site 26). Its a double site as we were with friends but other sites are just as good. Lots of palm shade. You can fish right at your van. About 200m to toilets and showers which are great and clean. Washing... More

We stayed in one of the cabins for two nights and were pleasantly surprised as we did not expect much considering the price. The cabin was clean, well set out and well maintained. The cabins are well positioned away from the caravan park and separated so that the balconies offer privacy. The laundry which was in the caravan park was... More

This is a fabulous place to stay, great sites for all camping and caravanning, very close to natural springs food a delight and the entertainment totally awesome. Especially the world champion whip cracker Nathan Riggs who had all in the audience spell bound and the haunting music of Garry booth who is a specialist in Australian music including the didgeridoo....

Our cabin was in a very quiet location with a great view of termite mounds. The location is within walking distance of Bitter Springs where you can float along in the warm water. The noon check -in was great as we had not travelled far. The cabin was spotless and well equipped. We even had our own clothesline. There was... More

We had planned to stay 2 nights at the park. Drove in and out again. It looks runs down and not inviting. Dry and not much shade. Can not understand all the good reviews. Turned around to find another park down the road.

Very friendly staff who are very knowledgeable in the surrounding areas and offer you an over view of the area. Being only a short walk away from Bitter Springs Hot Springs was great. The springs are in a natural setting and be sure to take the pool noodle provided to you by the Park as you are able to float... More

We had a cabin here for 2 nights, it was clean, comfortable, had all the things we needed to cook. The TV worked just fine, great shower. The attention to detail was evident, these owners care about their park. The cabins also had noodles that we could use at the Bitter Springs thermal pools. Our cabin had a carport, clothes... More

We stopped here for one night in a powered site on the way north to Darwin and were very pleased with our choice. The site is large and has stacks of shady well spaced sites both powered and non powered. Did not see the cabins hence cannot comment on them. Glenys greeted us with a smile and was super friendly...
