Relax on Bastin is situated on a quiet no-through road with Howard Springs and Coolalinga shopping centres only 5 minutes drive and Darwin city only 30 minutes​. The property has ample level space and shaded sites for tent, camper or caravan parking. There are fruit trees and seasonal tropical plants including bananas, pawpaw, pineapple and passionfruit. There is also a herb and veggie garden with pumpkin, chilli, basil and mint. Power and water are available from the ablution block with a toilet, shower and a washing machine along with a covered communal area including a gas BBQ, fire pits and BBQ plate for campfire cooking. A short 5-minute drive from shopping centres in Coolalinga and 10 minutes from the Gateway shopping centre in Palmerston. Relax on Bastin is centrally located and it serves as a great base to explore nearby Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks and only half an hour from the Jumping Crocs in the Adelaide River.

Relax on Bastin, Tent and RV Stop
We had great stay. Excellent facilities. Was close to Darwin and surrounds but felt like you were out in the bush. We had power and water hookup. Highly recommend!

Great place to explore Darwin
This was a really great place to stay. A pool, shower and toilet plus chickens and Barra feeding just added to the great community vibe. Tim the host is great and friendly and made us feel at home. The kids loved the little playground and the safe space to play. Highly recommend.

Great vibe and Tim was very generous, providing some home grown produce for campers to share. Bathroom was great - showers are cold and only one person can use the combined shower & toilet at a time. But we didn’t have to wait.

Pool, Barra & Space
This was our favorite stay. The quiet, laid back spot to relax and unwind; where the kids could ride bikes, play with other kids, have chooks wandering round, feed Barra’s with Tim our host, swim in the pool and have fresh eggs, tropical fruits to eat and plenty of shade, space & power hook up & water/ washing machine ticked the boxes for everyone. Tim was a fantastic host, loves his fishing, having a chat, and even cooked us all up freshly caught chilli crab. We didn’t want to leave, what a little slice of paradise in Howard Springs .

Barra on Bastin was perfect for our Darwin stay. Small amount of sites and we formed a little community! It was lovely. Great to also have use of the pool and hear the curlew at night. Loved it, thanks Tim, you are a very gracious host

Top relaxing place to stay.
Barra on Bastin was a super peaceful place to camp, the owner Tim was just great, going out of his way to make you feel welcome, offering us fresh eggs, lemons and we even fed his Barramundi. Booking in and communicating with Tim was a smooth easy process. There are five spacious shaded van sites on his lovely property. If you want to unwind and have a relaxing quiet stay somewhere I would highly recommend you do yourself a favour and stay at this lovely hipcamp. Our dogs loved it too !
