Owner/managers Cristo and Ansie who purchased the park "66 days ago" Cristo proudly told the Happy Hour gathering. A small park, some slabs, some drive-thru, shade or not. All sites appeared to be level - ours certainly was. $36 PN. Clean amenity block with good-sized showers, plus another block with unisex shower/toilet rooms. Almost next to the pub that is supposed to make good meals. Only 25 km from Longreach which can be booked out in peak season so many people stay here instead. Although on the highway it was quiet at night.

This is a great park. Spotlessly clean amenities, friendly staff. Some sites are grassed most are on gravel. $34.00 per night powered for 2 adults. Great happy hour. Close enough to see the sights in Longreach. Dump point across the road.
