Escape to a secluded campsite located on 25 acres of pristine NT bushland, just a short 10-minute drive from Palmerston. Our sites are equipped with power and fresh water, and features a covered area for meals, games and relaxation. As you sleep, listen to the tranquil sounds of the creek, just 30m from the camping area, and wake up ready to embark on your Litchfield National Park adventure, located conveniently nearby. This unique camping experience offers the privacy you desire, with only three campsites available. The creek, which flows from December to May, provides the perfect backdrop for your stay. Spot native wildlife such as wallabies, magpie, geese, and maybe even a crocodile during the wet season. Our property also features tropical gardens for you to explore and enjoy. Located in Virginia, just a 30-minute drive from Darwin CBD, our camp is the ideal base for exploring nearby attractions such as Litchfield National Park (40 minutes) and Berry Springs (20 minutes). You can even venture further afield to Kakadu and Arnhem Land. And with the Virginia Tavern just 500m away and Coolalinga Shops only a 2-minute drive, you can still enjoy the beauty of the bush while having access to modern conveniences. Please note, the sites do not have a toilet so you MUST have your own camp toilet and take all waste with you when you leave. Campfires are permitted when local fire restrictions are not in place.

Paperbark Camp 3
Great as
Great little spot, Sam is a lovely bloke who met us out the front and showed us where everything was on arrival. We were lucky enough to have the camping area to ourselves, pleasant location and convenient to Darwin. Comfortable undercover seating area a bonus. Would happily stay here again, thanks so much!

Paperbark Camp 3
We loved our stay at Paperbark. Sam was extremely welcoming when we arrived and checked in with us throughout the five nights of our stay. The campsite was quiet and peaceful with plenty of room for our kids to run around. We were able to do day trips to Litchfield National Park and Darwin City. Sam had even thought of having pool noodles for us to borrow and take into the local swimming holes! We didn't have a campfire but the option was there. There was also a common area where we could sit outside undercover. We would recommend this campsite. We enjoyed our stay and will be back!
