NT, Adelaide River, Mount Bundy Station

Date of Stay: September 2019 Rating: 3.5
A genuine station stay with stock & lots of native wildlife around. $34/nt powered site for two. Facilities are rustic, no frills but functional & clean. Some sites have dense shade others have none, most are grassed & flat. Management/owners are friendly & helpful on this family property. Small kiosk/office & shaded swimming pool. This was our third stay in four years. Recommended for those that enjoy "the real experience". Bar & pizzas are enjoyable.

NT, Pine Creek, Lazy Lizard Caravan Park

Date of Stay: September 2019 Rating: 3
Nice park in the centre of town, flat grassed sites, half of them with good shade. Amenties are deliberately rustic corrugated iron, clean with pump soap & hand towel provided. Friendly management, $30/nt with power. Nice shady swimming pool, bar & pub meals on site. Lots of bird life around, a very relaxing place to stay, we stayed 2 nights. Could possible get noisy in the peak tourist season.

NT, Victoria River Crossing, Victoria River Roadhouse Caravan Park

Date of Stay: September 2019 Rating: 3.5
One of the best roadhouse caravan park stops that we've experienced. Situated in a very scenic location with fantastic walking trails nearby. Management are friendly & helpful. Campground is very informal & dusty with limited shade. Amenities are adequate & clean with soap provided. Meals are well priced & very tasty. $15 per person per night on a powered site, water has a slight sulphur odour but is still fine. If you enjoy nature based activities we recommend staying two nights.

Nice flat mostly shaded & grassed sites. Amenities are old but very clean. Management are friendly & helpful. Landscaped tropical gardens with swimming pool. Hotel meals are good & reasonably priced. We extended our stay, we'd stay anytime.

WA, Willare Bridge, Willare Bridge Roadhouse Caravan Park

Date of Stay: September 2019 Rating: 3.5
Large grassed sites with a little bit of shade available, all at the rear of the roadhouse with not much traffic noise. $38 powered site per night, all sites are flat. Friendly overseas back packer staff, meals available. Amenities OK but not all that clean. As would be expected fuel very expensive. Ideal if you don't want to deviate of the main highway to Derby, we'd stay anytime.

NT, Nitmiluk National Park, Edith Falls Campground

Date of Stay: September 2019 Rating: 3
A very pleasant campground, no powered sites, some shade & grass. Friendly staff, small kiosk, $20 per night - 2 adults. A short walk to a delightful swimming hole near falls, abundant wildlife. Could be a tight squeeze for large rigs. Would be VERY popular during peak times.

A well run park, friendly efficient management. Amenities are clean & tidy, plenty of hot water. Camp kitchen, BBQ area good & happy hour campfire every night.

Qld, Tambo, Tambo Caravan Park

Date of Stay: June 2019 Rating: 3.5
Friendly, helpful management. Flat, grassed sites with some shade. Not a large park but easily copes with large rigs on drive through sites. Amenities adequate & clean. Small camp kitchen & happy hour fire. Nightly fish & chips cooked on site, order at office. $30 per night powered site, we stayed two nights as it is lovely town with a lot of civic pride & interesting history. A short stroll to two hotels.

Qld, Tambo, Barcoo River Camp

Date of Stay: June 2019 Rating: 2.5
Also known as Stubby Bend. A large area with some shade, mostly dust & bindies. A popular free camp, the few bins were overflowing. On our visit the flies were bad but on a previous visit during a dry period they were OK. Mostly flat area but would be very slippery black clay after rain. Quite a pleasant place overall. Short walk to town.
