The campsite itself is good & better than I expected. The tents are comfortable and spacious (NB all single beds), the hosts were really kind & accommodating and did their best in giving us a great experience there. The food is OK to good - I had pretty low expectations given previous reviews. The booking service is appalling: slow, rude, unaccommodating, mean even. I think they hate people, and they clearly hate their job. They don't keep their website up to date so ask lots of questions before you go (and good luck getting an answer). At the time we went they were still advertising a visit to Injalak Arts Centre which never happened (because of Covid) & they didn't mention it until I asked about it on the first night when it didn't appear in the next day's plan, as was advertised. After our visit they opened a small gallery at the Border Store. Visiting the Art Centre was a big reason for my visit so it was extremely disappointing that it didn't eventuate. The rock art is amazing, both on Arnhem land and around Cannon Hill. We saw so much of it that I honestly thought I couldn't take any more in (and I really love it!). The landscapes are stunning. Lather yourself in insect repellent as you will be attacked even with it on. Our guide into Arnhem land was neither indigenous nor an expert on indigenous rock art which was a real shame. Because we didn't go to the Art Centre he really dragged out the day to fill up the time and we had to listen to some really boring monologues from him. Given al of this, it would have been much better if the time at each site had been shorter.

We were a family group of 12 and spent a night at the lodge - we were welcomed by Ian and Rana and had a very interesting sunset walk into the rocks close by to view aboriginal paintings and areas - fantastic views also. Rana's cooking was wholesome and great - best we had in NT! The cabins were comfortable and the night peaceful. I made a mess of the booking (I booked the wrong night - my fault) - and the team were very accommodating to take us a night early - thank you!
