We had a one bedroom cabin with views over a large green area, the cabin had everything you needed with good air conditioning.The cabins have a large balcony so you can sit outside in the early evening and watch the parrots coming home to roost for the night. The cabins are on stilts so you park your car underneath the... More

Stayed here 2 nights in a powered site.. The park itself is very pleasant, shady and heaps of birds. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The amenities were first class, spotlessly clean and very well maintained. Great BBQ area.

We stayed or two nights in a cabin. Not inexpensive but all amenities were provided for. Great outdoor cooking facilities and the pool provided much needed relief from the heat. The owners didn't appear to be around much so the local knowledge felt a little untapped. The two bed room was comfortable. The beds worked albeit it smelt like someone... More

Stayed in an ensuited studio cabin for 3 nights. The cabin was spacious and very well appointed and had all necessary appliances. We had an elevated cabin which was great but should you have knee or leg difficulties the stairs could be a bit of a bind. The pool was within 25m of our cabin so was very handy. I... More

We stayed in a queen cabin. It is elevated with space to park the car underneath. The cabin has a separate bedroom, kitchenette with cooktop, microwave and full size fridge. The cabin is modern, spotlessly clean and well maintained. Very comfortable stay. It is located out of town on the gorge road. Quiet surroundings. Owners very friendly.

We stayed for four days (extended from three) on the way through to Kakadu and Darwin. I imagine we will stay again on the way home. This is one of the nicest and best run parks we've stayed in so far on the trip. It's lovely and shady and the powered sites seem large and comfortable. The amenities are very... More

We stayed here a week when travelling up to Darwin and Jabaru. Great park and one of the cleanest we have been to. We have just returned for a couple of days but will probably stay longer. Great sites with slabs for vans and always full, so this is a very popular park. It is not large but lovely shady... More
