Had a slight technical problem with my booking, the room had two single beds instead of the queen bed that was on my booking. However they did not hesitate to upgrade us to a Villa and apologised for the problem (I was happy to just push the beds together) but they insisted on upgrading us. The place is well looked...

We have stayed here for 5 weeks . The staff have all been friendly and helpful. Two pools to choose from both are clean and refreshing. The amenities are clean and the gardens lovely with plenty of shady trees. Onsite meals available. No dogs. Close to shopping and Darwin CBD.

We camped at the Discovery Park for two weeks. It was a very positive experience. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The amenities were cleaned daily and were always in a clean state. Our site was clean. Camp kitchen had a TV but I did not use the camp kitchen facilities. Close to airport and there is a bit...

As part of our trip around we rented a Britz Hi Top (is basically a Toyota Hiace, fits two to three) which, after driving to Kakadu our battery died out and we had to get to a place to charge it.

We stayed for three weeks with a young family which was great. Recommend you don't go during airforce training week, the fighter planes take-off from the airport down the road. There are two pools in the park which are both good sizes. Older style bathrooms which are cleaned daily. Helpful and friendly staff are always welcomed.

Friendly staff, clean amenities but should be priced a lot lower due to the location being directly opposite a RAAF base with jets flying out every few minutes day and night. It is also a base for FIFO workers which wrecks the holiday vibe. Luckily we didn't spend too much time at the caravan or we would have been very...

Stayed here for 10 days. Greeted warmly by lovely smiling Alannah who helped us out with a few personal dramas during our stay, always smiling. Discovery - don't lose Alannah she is a great asset to your park. Had a shady site with a slab, amenities nice and pool actually warm. Close to town.
