Staying at Kings Creek Station enabled us to make an early morning start on a rim walk of Kings Canyon, essential timing in the heat of summer. We were accommodated in a safari tent, which was comfortable enough for our short stay. The tent has a cooler, which brought the temperature down to a pleasant level for sleeping. The tent...

We stopped here for fuel on our way out of Kings Canyon - the price was a bit cheaper than at Kings Canyon resort and we also wanted to have a bit of a look around. The atmosphere felt great and it looked like it would have been a nice place to stay. The store at the front was well...

I stayed here in December as part of a contiki tour, it had been raining heavily prior to the trip but the staff were amazing and accommodated our wishes to sleep outdoors! We slept in swags under a small enclosure and it was great! The dinner and breakfast served was lovely, spaghetti bolognese and bacon and eggs. Couldn't fault our...

If you want an authentic camping experience, this place is the one to choose. Feels like you are in the outback but have all the necessities you need! Not the best food, but the men on the station are really friendly and helpful. We also saw camels on the station!

The location and the views are great, it really feels like the Outback. So it is perfectly OK that the facilities are basic. As I slept in a swag, I could enjoy the stars. It is incredible how many stars you see in a spot like this. Unfortunately, the entire site was ant-infested and it was difficult to find a...

Thank you for your review. We are so pleased you had an enjoyable time with us at Kings Creek Station... the helicopter rides certainly are an amazing way to see the country out here. We will look forward to welcoming you again next you're in "the neighbourhood".

The quad bikes activity is an ABSOLUTE must. Best track and variety. If you're lucky you can go real fast. The quality of the place is what one would expect from the outback. The animals are adorable and the camels are entertaining. The one thing I didn't like is how dramatically overpriced the store there was -- no dramas if...

We.....party of 4 stayed 2 nights. We originally booked an over night quad bike tour, however unfortunately due to very strong winds we were unable to stay overnight as planned.

We stayed for 1 night and found it was one of the better sites we camped at in the Centre. Unlike others, it is more basic, but you get a lot more space and can have a campfire on your site. Only downsides were the groups staying weren't kept quiet at night, so partied till the early morning next to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ian and Lyn Conway established Kings Creek Station in 1981. The station lies 36 kilometres from the magnificent Kings Canyon (Watarrka) and is set amongst majestic desert oaks. Kings Creek Station is a working cattle/camel station with facilities for camping, accommodation and an opportunity to experience the outback either by quad (4 wheel motorbike), helicopter or camel. Basic supplies, meals and drinks can be bought at the station shop. You could even try one of our famous Kings Creek camel burgers!!!! The station is the largest exporter of wild camels in Australia and sells camels for live export, live domestic sales and meat. 37 documentaries have been filmed at Kings Creek and the station hosted Australian Geographics' fourth expedition. In 2001 the world famous Australian Safari travelled through and stayed at the station. Kings Creek Station has also been featured on 7 Sunrise Weather hosted by Grant Denyer in 2012. ... more   less
