We had a wonderfull stay. The studio was just perfect. A bbq and carnarvon underground the stars and wallabis all around. There are plenty of tracks and the national park is nearby. In the shop, there is not much for food. So bring your own. Look forward to the net time!

We have stayed here before in a Takka Tent and loved the place. This time around we booked a powered site for 3 nights and stayed in our own tent. On arrival we noticed a large colony of Flying Foxes had taken up residence along the creek, which immediately put my wife off. The noise and smell of them got...

No fridges in camp kitchens, but kitchens were clean and well maintained. Needed more bins. Not much information given upon arrival by staff, i.e.: about bats,swimming hole and platypus watching times. Camp site good,limited grass campsites. Facilities were clean. Great base for the National park.

After hearing good stories about Carnanavon Gorge we boarded our motorhome and went. On the resort (?) grounds we found almost no powered/unpowered sites with grass. Just leafs and dirt. Management implemented water restriction - they issued a board notice blaming customers for use of 80 mcub of water per day and overloading wastewater treatment plant. At the evening time...

A beautiful place to visit, lots to see. The staff at the resort could not have been more helpful or friendly. The facilities were great, we had a very relaxing time. The wildlife are right on your doorstep, and if you want a night off cooking, their roast dinners are definitely the way to go.

What an incredible place to stay. From the staff, the amenities, the wildlife, the scenery. So, so loved it here. We kept extending. Loved the isolation, the bush, yet all mod cons. Except electronic ones. Didn't even try to get wifi. Amazing bird life, I could wax lyrical for hundreds of words. Didn't want to go, my partner really did,...

We had a lovely unpowered tent site under the palm trees for 4 nights, with all the creatures you can imagine wandering freely around. The camp kitchen and bathrooms were clean and well maintained. Each night we enjoyed the fire ring surrounded by kangaroos, wallabies and bettongs, it was just lovely. Phil, the host, was exceptionally helpful and friendly and...

We called in here and spent 2 nights with 2 rigs (powered caravan sites) it is 40kms from the turnoff of the Carnarvon Highway to the Takarakka Bush Resort with the last 15 being gravel road. What an amazing place, from the smile at the desk when we walked in and helpful staff got us off to a great start....
