Spent 4 days here before our Ghan Train adventure. The park was fantastic, and the staff very friendly and helpful. We were with friends and shared one of the park cabins. The cabin was clean and in a nice quiet spot. It could however done with a makeover. The kitchen was a bit outdated, and the air conditioners noisy enough...

Good location - on bus route to Town - great staff - very helpful - would certainly use again next time in Darwin. The tropical feel - gardens had interesting plants, powered sites were larger than average.

This park is very close to both the airport, shopping centres and the city which is great to explore Darwin without long distances. The park has a 24 hr laundry which is a first in our travel around Australia. Highly recommend.

An Holiday park that is close to Darwin city but is also close to the airport which is a bit noisy at night. the available facilities are good, the sites could be a little better prepared and have some grass and sullage points at each power box with the water taps. would stay again.

Stayed 4 nights. Arrived late. Big 4 had all our paperwork organised, sites and all we had to do is park up. Amenities were 10/10. Staff very helpful. Darwin was wonderful and the location was central to all our tours etc. and sightseeing. Would recommend this caravan park.

We stayed for 3 nights during a trip to Darwin. Although the sites were a bit tight, overall the park was very enjoyable. The reception staff went out of their way to accommodate us and the ground staff and permanent residents were all very friendly. The amenities were exceptionally clean.

We stayed for two night in one of the cabins before we set off for Katherine and Kakadu. The park is close to the airport - which was great because our flight didn't come in until after midnight. The keys were left out for us with all the information we needed. The park was exceptionally quiet - which was amazing...

Things that stand out in our week's stay were the stench of the community rubbish collection point, a skip that is continually open, & amenities that are unregulated in cleaning times: this morning cleaning was done in the peak period ie 8.30 am. As the site charges have been $49 & $45, these are second to the Lee Point $50...

Nice facilities when they work, had to walk from one end of the park to the other to use the camp kitchen. Got a spot next to what only could be described as "interesting", best thing was the pool and being the closest to the city and opposite the air museum.
