Stuarts Well: A Different experience

Stuarts Well Roadhouse and Caravan Park is located 90 kilometres south of Alice Springs. Jims Place, as it is known by the locals, will appeal to value conscious travellers looking for a truly Central Australian experience. Meet interesting characters and browse through the photographic history of tourism in Central Australia that lines the walls. Set on 25 acres, accommodation ranges from camping sites (some free camping available), to caravan and mobile homes sites, to powered sites, cabins, bunkhouse and budget rooms.

The Cotterill family cut the first road to Kings Canyon, Watarrka National Park, and Jim has many stories to tell about Central Australia and will be happy to tailor a personal tour to suit your requirements.
Listen to the world famous Dinky the Singing Dingo, who was saved as a puppy after his mother was killed, to become a celebrity and enjoy the local wildlife as you relax and absorb the atmosphere.

Stuart Caravan Site

The campsite also offers cabins, but being backpackers, opted for the cheapest option- AU$11 per person camping.
We gave the van a treat and washed it at the sites' car wash area.
You are given an electronic tag to get in at night, I think this was more to keep the local population out.
A quiet, tree covered spot.
For some reason I can't remember much about this campsite, must mean it wasn't bad but wasn't outstanding either.

MORE CHOICE THAN YOUD THINK

If you are looking for hostel accomodation and arriving by train look out for the guys with the boards ! tourism is BIG in Alice Springs and there is plenty of choice

alternatively if you fly in look out for the information and accommodation boards at the airport

Melanka Backpacker resort

Well I cannot say I was impressed at Melanka's. They didn't recognize my reservation that I had made months earlier. The private room was very dingy and the shower was disgustingly dirty. The place ROCKED all night long. Some guy screamed from 2 am to 5 am. And what were those things that were biting me in bed all night anyway?

They also charged me 20 dollars for an extra blanket...? It's a good thing I had cash to spare. You definitely need an adventurous spirit to stay there...

Melanka's: Lively Melanka's

Melanka's is a big big hostel with loads going on. Most tour buses to the Rock leave fom here. its full of backpackers coming and going from tours. They do good food and have a good bar which creates a good drinking atmosphere! Be warned in Winter, Alice gets very cold at night! Do bring a sleeping bag!

Melanka: An ok hostel

It has the reputation of a party place and there is indeed a nightclub. Not too bad a place though. I stayed in the motel site, in a six bed dorm with en suite, tv and airco. There's a pool and good laundry facilities.

Four Seasons Hotel: Yulara Resort

Yulara Resort is great for the view it gives you of Ayers Rock, for the little bit of civilisation out in the desert.

The Four Seasons Hotel is a nice resort hotel of a very good standard (sorry I can't remember anything else about it, least of all the prices now, as I was there over a decade ago)

My No 1 would be the swimming pool! Great after a dusty day out in the Desert visiting the attractions.
