I feel that if I stayed here with a caravan and spent some time exploring, I would have had a much better experience. My stay, unfortunately, was a rushed one nighter, in a cabin on stilts with bathroom. It was like something from the 70s. A lot of people wouldn't handle a few things (see photos). And it wasn't very...

Thank you for your review. We do try to update our cabins, they were painted internally and curtains replaced in March this year. I have made our cleaners aware of the lime (calcium) build up on the shower rose and toilet bowl, so this has now been rectified.

I overheard Manbulloo Homestead being discussed when I was staying at Banka Banka Station. Never having been to Katherine before, I thought it would be worth a shot, being out of town and not a full on tourist park loaded with screaming kids. What i got was a nice shady site, peaceful and tranquil. Leaving me calm and ready to...

Had stayed at Shady Lane the month before and explored all of Katherine so decided to try this park this time. We were with three other couples and we were all able to locate along the fence under the trees. We were visited by some friendly horses over the fence late afternoon. Very cute. Both shower blocks, the Uni sex...

This is a lovely family and pet friendly caravan park. Perfect for a quiet escape and only a 10 minute drive from town. It has beautiful grassed and shaded areas, and is adjacent to the Katherine River, no barramundi for us this time around! Amenities are clean

Booked this caravan park on friend's recommendation ... Beautiful natural park, shady, and quite roomy sites. Amenities could do with more space in showers but water lovely and hot. Stayed two nights, could easily have stayed a week or more. Hosts friendly, and it's dog friendly too! Well done to owners, will recommend to others .

We liked the idea of being far enough out of town and beside the river. Excellent choice. We were in a tent. Big, generous shady site. Met some lovely people. Staff helpful. Felt relaxed and 'safe'. Toilet and shower amenities older but clean. Lots of hot water. Initially booked for 3 nights...stayed 9!

This stay was perfect. Very quiet, walking distance to the Katherine River - no swimming because of salt water crocodiles but it's crystal clear & flowing. Free laundry & of course everything dried quickly. Close to Katherine for groceries or meals. 58k to Beswick on an excellent road for a visit to Ghunmarn Culture Centre & Walking with the Spirits...

Nice tidy, clean and quiet, graasy park. Amenities are fairly good, nice outback style camp kitchen, at $25 for an unpowered site is much cheaper than the competition. A little out of town but worth a look. Safe travel to all

As all powered and unpowered sites in town were booked out it was a relief to stumble upon Manbulloo and have a powered spot a few kilometres south amid farmlands. Reception easy to deal with. Easy access on dry grass site. Most sites are very shady. Several permanents live here in various styles of accommodation. Basic large clean bathrooms. Outdoor...

Caravan park has large shady clean sites, have a fifth wheeler, it fitted in easily. The park is very dog friendly. It is the right distance from Katherine not far but far enough to stop the locals coming in and permanently borrowing your possessions, that does happen in other parks in the NT. Staff were friendly and helpful.
