Stayed in the studio rooms. Very neat and tidy, the rooms are well maintained and it was quiet which was much appreciated after a couple of noisy nights elsewhere. The towel sculptures were a nice touch.

Pulled up late and were directed to a site by one of the friendly staff, unfortunately our neighbour ( unable to locate) had plugged into our electricity supply! and no other was available. We went to tell the staff, who resolved the problem by upgrading us to an En-suite site. Extremely helpful, bearing in mind they had only just taken...

I had a villa, 2 bedrooms! One room with a double bed and the other room with two single beds! The beds are very comfy, it is a nice quiet area, close to the town centre! Fairly big villa, the bathroom, kitchen and lounge/dining room were all a very decent size! Will definitely be booking this place on my next...

While chasing wildflowers in the area, we brought our caravan to this park and stayed in an ensuite powered site. As a Grey Nomad we received 10% discount, which was a pleasant surprise. It's a nicely kept park with the emphasis on cabins for itinerant workers at the local Olympic Dam project. There is no other caravan park in the...

Lovely quiet spot away from traffic. We were allocated a nice shaded area for our 5ver. The amenities were spotless. Very welcoming managers and staff. Would highly recommend this park to anyone travelling in the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It's worth the extra few kilometres from Pimba. Thank you Frank and Maureen

I opted for Discovery Parks as a cheaper option to where I'd stayed previously in Roxby Downs and was very pleased with the result. For me it was perfect however my Dad joined the trip late. Front office staff were very accommodating to sort out a more appropriate room which we covered the difference without hesitation. Despite the wi-fi not...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A rare insight into the underground world of our miners awaits you at Roxby Downs, deep in the Australian outback. Just over two hours from Port Augusta and 563 kilometres from Adelaide, Roxby Downs is a must-see. Discovery Parks - Roxby Downs (formerly Myall Grove Holiday Park) is a well-appointed caravan park with facilities that will surprise you. You’ll be amazed by the jaw-dropping BHP Billiton Olympic Dam, which produces 9 million tonnes of ore annually – we recommend the virtual underground tour. Take a guided sunset walk of the Arid Recovery Reserve to explore dunes, follow animal tracks and spot nocturnal wildlife. While you’re there, don’t forget the fascinating town of Andamooka – an opal lover’s paradise. ... more   less
