TAKARAKKA BUSH RESORT: Great private Campsite

This campground is just outside the Carnarvon National Park. We took our caravan when we stayed here, but there is camping areas and set up large canvas tents as well, please check out the good website for info and pictures. Our stay here was excellent. We did lose power once, you have to expect things like this, as you are outback in the bush. There is NO Television or Mobile phone reception. Radio is poor also. Amenities worked, and each night if you wished, you could sit and listen to the "Ranger." There is a shop/kiosk which sells essentials and souvenirs. Its prolific with birds and wildlife. Theres about 170 different bird species that call Carnarvon park home.
We will definitely be back!
I doesn't matter about no T.V. reception, after a days hiking you are so tired, you just want to sleep and be rested ready for the next days adventure.

A very pleasant place with lots of wildlife, peace, quiet, tranquility.
There are Kangaroos and Wallabies around the campsites, morning and afternoon. Apostle Birds, well, they want the crumbs from your afternoon tea.
PLATYPUS in the creek behind. To see these, EARLY morning and late afternoon is the best, other times you probably won't see them. Make sure you are VERY QUIET. There are a few here, and I saw them each of the 3 days we stayed here.
Even though I'm Aussie, I never tire of seeing the wildlife.

Takarakka Bush Resort: Fantastic Camping!! Fantastic Walking!!

Fantastic...wonderful campground. Communal camp kitchen with full facilities. Clean and plenty of showers, toilets and both powered and unpowered sites. It's an expensive campground, as there is nothing else around...but it's worth it.

Comfortable, lots of facilities, free slideshows and talks on the Carnarvon Gorge.

Modern kitchen and dining area with four gas ranges, huge gas barbecues, stainless steel sinks, tables for seating .

Fireplaces are lit daily with the firewood supplied by Takarakka for bush cooking in camp ovens etc.

Fuel is not available at Carnarvon Gorge - make sure you fill up at Injune or Rolleston.
