Stayed in a safari cabin which @ $90 per person per night t Seems expensive. But I guess we have to realise the place is a long long way from anywhere. Staff were friendly and obliging. Cabin was adequate. A steel frame with a canvas cover. Comfortable single beds. A heater and fan. Ablutions were clean. Breakfast was included and... More

$180 for a powered tent with 2 single beds is a rip off. Showers and toilets are old. No paper towels in ladies toilets and was told would be rectified immediately by reception. Never did arrive!! No camel rides as advertised which was one reason for our visit. Helicopter pilots were great. About the only good thing there.

Stayed one night while visiting Kings Canyon. Wish it was longer. Unlike other reviewers we loved the tent (we like camping). Great communal kitchen and fridge. Clean and tidy shower block and toilets. Friendly staff. Good food. Awesome breakfast. Yes it is pricey but it is remote. Yes it is somewhat Spartan but it is huge outback, what do you... More

Along the way to Kings Canyon we decided to stay here for one night 40km out from the canyon. Staff very helpful and polite. Need to book ahead to get a powered site. We did not so got an unpowered site. Toilet and shower area was clean and the shower was excellent - warm water and a good pressure. Also... More

We only stayed for lunch. Two camel burgers and two coffees. Whilst the camel burgers were OK, small meat pattie but just enough salad and good bun for $12 each the coffee was an expensive joke. Nearly $5 for at best filtered and at worst instant coffee. Now, I don't mind this type of coffee but not at that price.... More

We did a two and a half hour quad bike tour with just one other guest and the leader (Brent). I was a bit worried before hand about going on a quad bike but it was heaps of fun and we got to really travel over a lot of ground. You soon get your confidence and go a bit faster,... More

For the hefty price tag the framed tents are a terrible option, particularly in the freezing cold nights of winter. We froze despite the one bar lecetric heater (supplied) running throughout the night. Breakfast was a ripper but seriously for the price this accomodation option is a rip off. Press on to Kings Canyon Resort for a far warmer, more... More

Stayed with friends who booked a caravan site for us, but will never return. After hitting the caravan park and being impressed with the area and views that was the end of our pleasure. We were staying in the powered section and paying $49 for two of us per night. From the time we got there, there was an awful... More

Absolutely disgusting from the horrible dirty little safari tents to the rotten septic system smell that fills the air every time someone flushes the toilet anywhere in the park area. Food is so expensive with a burnt minute steak, burnt onions 1 bit of lettuce and a slice of tomato as a main meal. Sandwich with tomato and lettuce and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. Basic supplies, meals and drinks can be bought at the station shop. You could even try one of our famous Kings Creek camel burgers!!!! The station is the largest exporter of wild camels in Australia and sells camels for live export, live domestic sales and meat. 37 documentaries have been filmed at Kings Creek and the station hosted Australian Geographics' fourth expedition. In 2001 the world famous Australian Safari travelled through and stayed at the station. Kings Creek Station has also been featured on 7 Sunrise Weather hosted by Grant Denyer in 2012. ... more   less
