We had dinner here one night when we were staying in Pine Creek. The barramundi and chips was beautiful and the chicken parmi was decent. Good value and great service too. Bar doubles up as a bottle shop so we were also able to pick up some supplies.

We ate here a couple of times as not much else in Pine Creek. This is really the hub of the town, but the meals and service were fantastic. Great little pub with a great atmosphere. Would recommend to anyone staying in Pine Creek to come here just for the quirkiness and also for the great food.

Only booked the day before our one night stay, so was not sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised with this small but well manicured park.Sites were well grassed, beautiful quirky shower block with the use of kegs for hand basins, cisterns etc matched with jarrah and corrugated irons sheets. Lovely bar area with nice pool, we only had drinks but most people seemed to be enjoying the food coming out from the kitchen. Would definitely stay again if in the area,

We went here for dinner and had their pizzas - thin and crusty, just perfect! Staff was very friendly although they were understaffed. Good place to eat in Pine Creek, and the bar also is very nice with pool table and so. We would definitely come back!

Travelling from Mataranka to Darwin my wife and I stopped here for lunch. I thought it was pretty good. Considering it is stuck out in the middle of no-where. The guy serving was friendly enough. The food was tasty and a good portion. It is quite popular so it could be busy at times. There is also a pool that I believe you can use as well. I would recommend popping in.

This caravan park and tavern is one of Northern Territory’s best kept secrets! Shady, grassed sites, very clean amenities, great pool and the Tavern rivals Daly Waters for sure! Customer service excellent too! We will definitely be back!

This is a small caravan park in a very pretty setting with well-watered and maintained green space. Sites are quite narrow but reasonably long so it was possible to stay hitched for an overnight stay. Adjacent to the store/bar/servo/pool providing plenty of services within the complex. The amenities were excellent and there is a good camp kitchen. A top spot to stay prior to heading into Kakadu.

We have stayed here several times in the last 4 years.... stayed 19/01/22 in a caravan.... the only ones in a caravan, obviously covid and wet season affecting bookings. We always loved the campsite quirky bathrooms.... but since we last stayed they have been done up to a very high standard.... still quirky with the beer keg sinks and toilets.... but to a very high standard. Generally campsite bathrooms are a bit yuk... we have seen over 50 on our travels... but these are absolutely the best... the best we have seen so far. Already sent pics to a couple of camping friends..... i guess the only other thing i would say as a darwin local.... covid hit businesses very hard... the locals are clearly supporting them, if you can go.... we certainly will again!

Cannot recommend the dongas on site . Changed rooms due to some things not working (reading lamp, no mirror in bathroom, television not working, toilet flooding). Woman at counter made me feel very uncomfortable for changing rooms - friendly customers service not a priority. Also, couldn't use pool in the morning as they were putting chlorine in. Would recommend staying at the Railway Resort next door for just a little bit extra money - rooms are gorgeous and well looked after making you feel as though you're in Italy!
