We are very disappointed to read your review. Your fall in the shower whilst wearing thongs on tiles was unfortunate and attended to by our staff who sought medical assistance and followed up with daily visits to ensure your recuperation. An electrician attended immediately and was unable to substantiate your claims of electric shock. After staying 10 days, 3 of...

We (wife, I and our small dog) spent four nights at this wonderful park whilst we explored Darwin.

There is lots here for kids to do- pools, play areas, bouncing cushion etc, but it was also peaceful for a big site. Had everything you'd want and more and we found the staff very welcoming as well. Nice pitches, but you might want to ask to be away from the road, as it was surprisingly busy early in the...
