Whether you’re heading to the Red Centre for a tour or a self-drive excursion there are several accommodation options to choose from.

  • Swag

    The ultimate accommodation when in the stunning outback is a swag. This traditional Australian camping bag is the perfect way to keep warm through cool outback nights under the stars. Swags are light and easy to transport, plus their single-person dwellings. This means there’s no need to worry about bad roomies!

  • Kings Creek Station

    Found just a short drive from the magnificent Kings Canyon, Kings Creek Station has a variety of accommodation types on offer. The working cattle station caters from self-camping to luxury Dreamtime Escarpment Glamping. Safari Cabins are a comfortable and affordable option for those without camping gear. With basic facilities and linen provided, you’ll be able to catch up on some much-needed sleep. For something a bit flashier, test out the Dreamtime Escarpment package. Private luxury glamping tents provide you with stunning views and top tier amenities.

    Desert Palms is a tropical oasis in the Red Centre. The 3.5-star motel is family-friendly and offers a range of villa accommodation packages to suit your needs. Enjoy a cooling dip in the motel pool or head inside for a nap under the air conditioner. The villas all look towards the stunning modern pool, and a leafy row of palms offers your privacy from your neighbours. Whip yourself up a snack in your in-room kitchenette or ask the friendly staff for their best restaurant recommendations.

  • Cavenagh Lodge B&B

    The Cavenagh Lodge B&B is surrounded by native wildlife and outback bushland.
