The Adventures of Kings Creek Station

Uluru is one of the most popular destinations in Australia for tourists. It’s ancient history and iconic jutting rock face is famous around the world, but there are other parts of the region worth exploring, too.

Kings Creek Station is set amongst the sprawling orange landscape of Australia’s Outback, and is a working cattle and camel station. Here, visitors can camp beneath the stars, stay in a range of comfortable accommodation, and experience the surrounding scenery of this incredible part of the country.

Known as the largest exporter of wild camels in Australia, Kings Creek Station is renowned for its camel burgers, but there are plenty of other things to keep you busy during your time there.
