We had looked at stopping in Timber Creek but were aiming for Kununurra. That changed when we found a broken spring on our near new van. Everyone we met in Timber Creek was freindly and helpful and the van park at the pub wad recommended locally. The owner assisted me with the van without me asking. We ended up 3... More

This is what they are peeps, roadside inns, pretty much a pub that sells petrol. I as a Territorian always stop at each of the many as they display what it is all about up here and of course the quirkyness of each of these landmarks which makes us what we are. Of course many people come from overseas and... More

This is an area where you don’t have too many choices for accommodation. This roadhouse is ok, but the area where the accommodation is looks somewhat run down and dusty. Our “metal container/cubicle/meat locker” was very small but the AC worked fine and we had a small bathroom. There are detached cabin-like buildings, motel rooms and the “metal container/cubicle/meat locker”... More

Great spot, friendly people and the bonus is a close up of the croc feeding, see photos. We loved our overnight caravan stop and mixing with the staff who were so helpful.

Personally I didn't enjoy this pub. The locals got a bit too rowdy for my liking. In fact later in the evening they brawled to the point that I thought someone would be killed. Just didn't need that level of social interaction.

2015TCH, Owner at Timber Creek Hotel, responded to this review

Hi PaulMandSarahG, I am sorry that the Pub wasn't to your liking on this occasion. Majority of the time the pub is pretty low key and friendly experience. Our crowds love their football, noise levels peek on those nights. Wish you the safe travels on your Aussie Adventure. Kind Regards Fiona & Callum McDonald More

After a pleasant check-in, we were told to find a place in the park, plenty of room under many shady trees. Things went downhill from there, the camping area had no marked caravan bays, if you parked in the centre you would get blocked in when more vans arrived!! There was no provision for grey water disposal so everyone just... More

Good Evening John_from_WA, We take on your ideas for grey water disposal it hasn't been mentioned before by any other customers. The park is only a 1/3 capacity in August as June and July so most of the Powered area is very roomy and many spots to choose. Which from other feedback is what most customers like about the park....

After reading good reviews of this park we were very disappointed to discover that the amenities blocks, while reasonably clean, need considerable work to bring them to an acceptable standard.
