We stayed here January 2013 after reading reviews about the Eco Retreat and how ghastly it is. It really is a superior spot to launch your explorations into the Karijini National Park and other sites in the area. We had a powered site for out caravan, a bit pricy in the off season at $38 I thought but then got slugged $52 a night at the BIG4 in Port Hedland. Needless to say we only spent 1 night there. We ended up staying 3 nights at the Tom Price CP, it was shady, toilets were clean and I had to laugh when three frogs came flying out when I flushed the toilet LOL ... Karijini was spectacular with EASY walks to each scenic lookout to each gorge. The Tom Price mine tour was sensational and the best of 3 mine tours that included Kalgoorlie (very good) and Mount Whaleback in Newman (not so good) the only thing to see in Newman is the mine and after enduring a monotone never ending guides narration of the site, and a dhead down the back of the bus in a green helmet trying to conduct his own tour, I felt like cutting my wrists!! and hot? Oh boy... give it a BIG miss.. the other thing to do and see in Tom Price is to drive up Mt Nameless (if you have a 4x4 and a good ticker) its one of the most spectacular mountain lookouts I’ve ever seen with 4 or 5 outpoints to stop and take photos.. excellent!!go to Tom Price, go to the TP caravan park, enjoy the wildlife in your toilet (lol) and get out to Karijini, the Mine Tour and the Mountain!!
