Bush Tents are a rip off!!!
Jun 2021 • Couples
The Bush Tents are horrifyingly overpriced for what you get!
We paid $237 per night for 2 pax (we stayed for 2 nights) to get 2 x single beds in an extremely small tent with air-con/heating and shared facilities.
We could not move in our tent when we unpacked our car.

I am more than happy to stay in basic accommodation but not for this price! If I had paid under $100 for this per night I wouldn’t have an issue. I know it’s a remote location but come on, this is highway robbery!

You have to pay for wifi, there is the worst 1 ply toilet paper supplied in the shared bathrooms and you don’t get your room cleaned daily.

Very disappointed with my choice of staying here. I feel so ripped off and have felt this way since arriving and seeing our accommodation.

Yes breakfast is included which was good (bacon,eggs, hash browns, baked beans and sausages) however it was let down with the very cheap instant coffee. Our 1st day the breakfast was cold which was disappointing but the 2nd day was much better.

Burgers are reasonably priced and quite good. Timing is not ideal. You have to order by 6:45pm to get your dinner. When you are out trying to enjoy the sunset from your tent, you have to be watching the time so that you don’t miss out.

All in all, stop in for a burger and a beer but don’t be like me and get ripped off with the Bush Tents.

Not quite fit for a King, but ...
Jun 2021
You don't get a huge amount for your money when you stay at Kings Creek Station but it is a long way from anywhere and most things here tend to cost quite a bit more. Our tent (on solid floor with two single beds) was a bit of a squeeze but was sturdy and a good buffer to the cold and the wind. The bathroom facilities were basic but everything worked, while the camp kitchen was pretty good. Even surprised to find wine glasses in there. (We were able to buy a bottle at the cafe - reasonably priced, too - and after our late arrival that definitely helped us settle in). Ended up having a friendly chat with other travellers around the camp fire. Big hot breakfast was part of the tariff, and that gave us a good start to the day on each of the two mornings we were here. Two nights was enough, however.

Outstanding overnight experience!
May 2021 • Couples
We booked here as we were keen to walk the Canyon , We chose the Drovers Accomodation at this station ( only 20 min from the Canyon) that was more in our budget and it was more than just accomodation! You are taken up to a ridge that overlooks the stunning McGill range and have a large Camp kitchen and dinner table all undercover , then they give you an intro to the area including complimentary Drinks , ( it has all mod con facilities hot showers/ WC ) then at 6.30 the Station Chef comes up and cooks you a Steak Dinner ! We had Yoshi and Will that entertained us with story’s of living at the station , he then built us a great campfire and left us under the stunning stars ! We slept in an enormous Swag off the ground and woke to the Sunrise Over the Ranges . We then drove back to the Station HQ (5klms) and they gave us a Hot Buffet Breakfast all included in the package !
Unfortunately Our experience with other accommodations in the NT ( Uluru) were not anything like we experienced here and were disappointing at best .
Don’t hesitate to try this World Class Experience !
“ More than just a room ! 🇦🇺

Great Coffee

'Stopped for petrol & a wee! Had the best coffee and toasted sandwich. So hard to find a good coffee in the outback but these 2 boys did a great job.

Glorious glamping
Jun 2021 • Couples
We stayed in the luxury glamping accommodation where dinner, beverages and breakfast are all included. This was a once off experience glamping in outback Australia. Jess and Ross have thought of everything to make your stay memorable and comfortable It was just superb. We had an outdoor bath and shower which added to the ambiance. It’s certainly an experience we will remember.

Ok for stop over
May 2021
Called in on our way to kings canyon for a drink and something to eat.

Food ok service was a little cold, being an outback place would have thought you would be at least greeted with a hello!!!

Good to have a look at camels but that’s it, never stayed in the accomodation.

Prices ok with the remoteness.

HIghly Recommended Experience
May 2021
We had an excellent stay. The bush tent was cozy, with my teen and I on beds and my 7 year old in a swag on the floor between us, which was fine for the 3 nights. The tents are sturdy and we felt protected from the wind and rain, but close to nature which we loved, also close to the facilities. The aircon was a real plus, and the were nights were mild so we didn't need the heating. The amenities, including the bathrooms and shared kitchen, were clean and had everything we might've needed for a BBQ or self-catering, including 2 fridges (with ice) a microwave, disposable plates and cups and even wine glasses. The kids loved visiting the camels, hanging out at the playground and the pool, even though it was a bit too cold to swim. The cooked breakfast is great, and the store offers a limited range of snacks (better to bring your own), the menu was limited (mostly sandwiches and burgers), but the food and drinks were generally good. The staff are friendly and informative, the whole feel of the place is very relaxed and it was an unforgettable experience, we would love to stay again. Great location for visiting Kathleen Springs (a must-see) as well King's Canyon.

Bush tent *1
May 2021 • Couples
Unfortunately the bush camping experience did not equate to enjoyment. It was extremely basic. Breakfast was included in the inflated price we paid of over $200 per night! Breakfast was awful. No cereal no fruit no choice. After the first morning we took some bread back to the bush kitchen to cook toast in the toaster. However the toaster was broken - half worked after some coaxing. Paper plates and plastic knives were provided. The cafe where burgers could be purchased for dinner was good. The burgers and chips were great. Staff there were friendly and helpful. Being able to use the laundry for washing was good. Thank you for providing that facility but please reconsider breakfast and the price of your bush tents.

Overpriced and taking advantage of its remote location
May 2021
12th May 2012
We spent two nights at Kings Creek Station and were very disappointed with aspects of our stay. We understand we were in a remote location ( we have stayed in many) and that we are emerging from a pandemic, but this cannot excuse the lack of hospitality and generosity given to guests by some staff.
A small dust covered tent is provided with barely room for two single squeaky beds ...... the door knob proved a frustrating challenge with every entry and exit. No broom was provided to sweep out the constant and totally expected red dust. The swimming pool was dirty and was full of wasps
. The “Camp Kitchen” was so ill equipped it was unbelievable. No cups, no plates and an old opened packet of plastic teaspoons .....no lighter for the gas stove .... an old fridge (which was full even though there were only a few guests) .....and an ancient microwave. The hot water tap had been removed making it difficult to wash dishes and adhere to COVID regulations At $200 per night this is vastly opportunistic and overpriced. Cafe and restaurant staff were a saving grace ...very helpful and pleasant. Surely each guest could have cup/plate /cutlery provided in their tent with tea and coffee sachets. A little generosity and hospitality goes a long way to keeping guests happy. We would not recommend the bush tent option......though the camping area looked great.

Stayed 2 nights at Kings Creek Station, great friendly staff.
Great base to do the Kings Canyon Park 32kms down the road.
