Our land used to be a nursery used for plant cultivation and there is plenty of bush. From here you can visit Charles Darwin National Park, Howard Springs Nature Park and the Knuckey Lagoons Conservation Reserve, which is an important wildlife habitat. During the wet season you can view the full wetlands and water lilies. The reserve has cultural importance for the local Larrakia people and is still used for collecting traditional food.

Due to the thick rainforest setting fires are not permitted.

Please note we are located 200-300 meters from the road so there may be road noise at times.

This campsite is for couples only - please no school aged children (very young kids aged 4 and under are ok as long as they remain under supervision of parents/guardians at all times). Children 4 and under camp for free with parents.

We really enjoyed our week stay. Mark and Jean-Anne the caretakers were so lovely, really helped us feel at home. Great location. Simple, clean amenities and free Laundry was a bonus. Large sites, fairly private depending on what other sites were occupied. Would stay again.

Quiet and tucked away camping ground. Basic but clean amenities. Large shaded sites. Easy access to many of Darwin's tourist attractions. Friendly and helpful caretakers in Mark and Jean-Anne. Power and water hook up available.

Such a beautiful, peaceful spot to stay. I originally booked 2 nights and then would camp at different places during my darwin visit, but I really enjoyed this spot so I booked another 2 nights.
Graham is so wonderful and friendly
The atmosphere is just amazing and it’s so close to town as well as easier to get around from there

Caretakers doing a great job.
Overall the place needs an upgrade for the amount they are charging they need to check out similar camps and what is offered.
