We didn't stay here but the hot springs were amazing, definitely worth a visit if you are going through Mataranka. As we visited in March it was very quiet because it is at the end of the wet season so there only two other people which made it extra special. The remake of the NeverNever ranch was a nice touch...

We stayed here on an overnight stay heading north. We had a nice large sites and the local wallabies come and say hello. The hot springs are next to the caravan park and we had a lovely swim there. Quite a few snakes around but we managed to avoid those.

Stayed in a cabin for two nights, purely for its location close to the hot springs. The hot springs are absolutely AMAZING and almost make you forget the filth that is the cabins. Almost. The cabins are absolutely revolting-everything was dirty and covered in cobwebs. The front door didn't lock, nor did any of the windows. The young guy on... More

Sadly, this place is Run-down and dirty. We got a motel-type room and the toilet was not so clean and the sink was clogged. The shared kitchen was absolutely horrendous. It looked like as if it hasn't been cleaned for weeks. There were cobwebs on everything, the grill did not work, and there a lot of stuff lying around. The... More

Keen to stay somewhere different to Katherine on our drive. Room is VERY basic, shabby, poor to no tv reception but clean. Close walk to hot springs which is worth a stop and swim. Meals at the pub were pub prices, tasty and a reasonable selection. Overall, you get what you pay for - (food and place to sleep) which... More

Definitely a spot for the youngsters. Cheap place to stay and off the beaten track. A bit of an oasis. Cane toad capital. If you like the smell of fruit bats and certain loud music then this is the place. However, when all said and done, it is amazing what is on offer food wise in a fairly out of... More

This place has cabins and camp sites. We stayed in a cabin which has it's own shower and toilet. While it's not the Ritz - it's clean, comfortable and airconditioned! The bed was comfortable but only one pillow each. There's a TV but there's onlu one channel but it still breaks up the night.They are old but you need to... More

Whilst our twin bed motel room was quite ordinary there were a number of pluses worth mentioning.The thermal pool was delightful especially at dusk with few people but plenty of wildlife (including mum and joey) and surrounded by palms and pandanus. We also took an early morning dip before departing the next day. The other big plus is the dining,... More

We stayed for 2 nights and it was a nice place to break up the journey from Darwin to Alice. We stayed in the backpackers and it seemed fairly empty. It's very basic, but its cheap so didn't expect anymore. But it does get incredibly cold at night time and the sheet doesn't really warm you up. We were shaking... More
