We had the best night in the old drover's camp. Three of us swagging under the stars. The boys cooked us a fish supper around the fire before leaving us to it for the night. The perfect place to experience the stillness and the solitude of the outback.

All you could need for camping within reach of King's Canyon. Clean facilities and quiet surroundings. As with all things in this area, nothing's cheap including food and drinks. Diesel prices comparable. Watch out for the ants! Great sunsets to enjoy.

Staying at Kings Creek Station enabled us to make an early morning start on a rim walk of Kings Canyon, essential timing in the heat of summer. We were accommodated in a safari tent, which was comfortable enough for our short stay. The tent has a cooler, which brought the temperature down to a pleasant level for sleeping. The tent...

We stopped here for fuel on our way out of Kings Canyon - the price was a bit cheaper than at Kings Canyon resort and we also wanted to have a bit of a look around. The atmosphere felt great and it looked like it would have been a nice place to stay. The store at the front was well...

I stayed here in December as part of a contiki tour, it had been raining heavily prior to the trip but the staff were amazing and accommodated our wishes to sleep outdoors! We slept in swags under a small enclosure and it was great! The dinner and breakfast served was lovely, spaghetti bolognese and bacon and eggs. Couldn't fault our...

If you want an authentic camping experience, this place is the one to choose. Feels like you are in the outback but have all the necessities you need! Not the best food, but the men on the station are really friendly and helpful. We also saw camels on the station!

The location and the views are great, it really feels like the Outback. So it is perfectly OK that the facilities are basic. As I slept in a swag, I could enjoy the stars. It is incredible how many stars you see in a spot like this. Unfortunately, the entire site was ant-infested and it was difficult to find a...

Ian and Lyn Conway established Kings Creek Station in 1981. The station lies 36 kilometres from the magnificent Kings Canyon (Watarrka) and is set amongst majestic desert oaks. Kings Creek Station is a working cattle/camel station with facilities for camping, accommodation and an opportunity to experience the outback either by quad (4 wheel motorbike), helicopter or camel.

In 2001 the world famous Australian Safari travelled through and stayed at the station.
