    Out of town, but on the road to Katherine Gorge, which is the main attraction. Apartments were up on poles, so the vehicle could be parked underneath out of the sun. Extremely friendly and helpful desk staff.

    It is a caravan park with some cabins for those of us who don't have access to a mobile camper. It was easy to find. The staff was very friendly.
